Prog Reviewer
2 stars Plain and simple 'Masq' sounds like the soundtrack from a dodgy Spaghetti Western.

An easily accessible album that suffers from it's hippie sensibilities. It also sounds very dated in an early 70's way. There are some brief experimental parts which are ok and I have to admit a liking to the high pitched vocals of the woman known simply as 'Charlotte'. Actually, there's a bit of a ghostly feel to parts of this album, probably due to Roland Bocquet's Farfisa organ and the male chanting in the background.

The drums could have done with being beefed up a bit... they sound awfully tinny. Clocking in at a paltry 29 minutes it makes you wonder when an album stops being an album and becomes an e.p.. I suppose after 20 minutes I'd pretty much had enough anyway. Just okay but it's a lot of old pants if truth be told and I certainly can't imagine it being anyone's album of the year.

Dobermensch | 2/5 |
