3 stars I would find this one sub-par if it was not for two numbers that sort of save this album going to Dullsville . Although one expects Blanche Biche to evolve from its initial ambiance , it stays for the 6+ min on the same notes but the number linked to it just after Bacchu Ber is very powerfull and interesting (a war march) , but the better is to come. Still taking original folk texts and brooding musically on it , while trying to stay true to the spirit of the songs is the normal Malicorne manner. but on Jardinier Du Couvent , they make a real epic of 9 min changing four times of ambiance, some of them enchanting you to the point of thinking of Gryphon or an acoustic Yes. One of those climates remind me a lot of a Traffic number John Barleycorn Must Die , where dark brooding lyrics and strong vocals makes you shiver for the man's health and wealth. Easily the better Malicorne number on a otherwise relatively weaker album.
