3 stars The first Raison De Plus album was pretty good and called for a follow up. Which has duly arrived.

Raison De Plus continued with their mix of Spock's Beard, Genesis and Ange on their second album. The opening track Jamais j'aurais dû grandir is in fact very Spock's Beard like. The music then moves into a more conceptual art with spoken words interlinking the songs. I do not speak French and I have no information about the concept either, besides of the booklet and art-work. But I very much suspect that this is a concept album. The music is very theatrical at times too. Early Genesis and Ange springs to mind.

Quality wise, some of the music here is great, but most of it is good. Dans la cité des incrédules is a great song and the best Raison De Plus has ever done. A great epic song with some great guitars. The rest of the material is not up to that standard. Which makes this album one of those frustrating nearly-great albums. I do recommend this album though if you can find it for a knock down price. Great art-work, btw.

3.5 stars
