5 stars Lard Free is French psychedelic minimalism band, formed around drummer and keyboards player Gilbert Artman. He was the only constant member of the band on their few next albums.

Music on their debut album is perfectly composed angular rhythm structures-based synth/rhythm compositions with free-jazz sax improvs over them. All this mix sounds heavy, spacey, psychedelic, minimalistic - and excellent. I am not sure if this music could be labelled as "krautrock" , or let say - it's a French krautrock. You can easily hear there influences from Terry Riley, very jazzy drumming and guitar improvs, and at the same time almost Magma-like Orffian atmosphere.

Six quite short compositions sound all different and absolutely fresh even now! Rare and very successful combination of early spacey psychedelic synth-rock, highest level free-jazz and some neo-classical minimalism.

Excellent work from one of the best French jazzy psychedelic bands from 70-s. Very recommended!

My rating is 4,5, rounded to 5!
