4 stars Not a pure prog album, but the songs and instrumentals are extremely well written, and there are definitely many prog elements. Some of it comes across as experimental-prog, while there are also short ballads, sometimes interspersed with heavy instrumentals. The whole album is very atmospheric, and as it is the soundtrack for the French film of the same name, it has all the feel of a concept album, and viewing some of the film trailers on iMDB or Youtube will add a great deal to the listening experience. I'd like to give it 5 stars, but I can't really call it "a masterpiece of progressive rock music", so 4 stars it is. This band are huge in continental Europe, but not so much in the UK for some reason.
