4 stars Funny annecdote : in high school in Toronto , there was a Bergeron (Paul ), a Nadeau (Sandra ) , a Roy (Arthur, not Max) , a Gateau (francois) and a Bilodeau ( Lucie) and they were all in my grade.

As James said above KC and Anekdoten for the influences on this album , I would like to point out some bands that probably listeneed to this one a lot before doing their music : Nebelnest and Priam (both French bands from the late 90's) and also Djam Karet in their last two albums. As James describe well their music , I would like to point out the concept of this album and the factthat both of those French bands did also inspire themselves from this one. This album although entirely instrumental gives a cool sountrack to the origins of our planet and the tectonic plates clashing between themselves ( Pangée or Pangea is the name of the American plate leaving Gondwanna - the Afro-Asian-European plateau - and the title points out towards the World hymn and the whole shabam of the Mythology , ancient and more recent. Quite a program , you see.... And they do a fair enough job , but the instruments used could've been joined by more eclectic ones , such as a didgeridoo and a bow to a double bass , bells and other percussion , and other wind instruments. Yes the only critic I might have on this album , is that they might have stayed too wise and sober but this was a debut , but wathever happened to them ? It has been 8 years now.
