3 stars Starting off with a Genesis riff..........

Excellent art work and an almost forgotten French band who released two albums through Musea some full-moons ago. This is their debut album. An album rooted in both symphonic prog and in particular; neo-prog. The sound on this album is most certainly neo-prog. The vocals are in French though and Ange comes in as a natural reference. Raison De Plus has not gone as theatrical as Ange though. Raison De Plus also sounds a lot more British neo- prog and symphonic than their French counterparts. Raison De Plus also have a lot of references to Camel in their sound. But their music is far more complex than Camel's music. In short, this album has a pretty complex sound.

The quality is pretty good throughout. Raison De Plus has their own identity. Unfortunate, they have not included any great songs here. Songs that is full of both electric guitars and keyboards. All the instruments are competently handled by the band. The vocals are great though. I am not entirely convinced by this album, but will give their second album a chance. This is a good album and I suspect I need to give it a lot more time than I have given it so far. Maybe this is a grower.
