4 stars Responding to first review's (Eric N.) last words - if you don't have a problem with French theatrical vocals ... This may be source of a lot of troubles. I'm not so sure what this term actually means (I googled unsuccessfully), but if it's what vocal department shows in Tels Quels, then it's not my cup of tea, not my usual comfort zone. But Prog is (also) about breaking boundaries and going out for a walk (through jungle for instance), so even I don't like it (maybe I'll like it in future), I respect it that it's original approach to accompany Prog with this kind of theatre. As Bonnek already said in his review, it's in French, which can be advantage for some, but disadvantage for many (including me) - some of these songs simply doesn't fit me here (when talking about lyrics - I realized that I'm able to know just one foreign language - the one I'm using and thinking in right now, so no hope for me to learn French - which in turn will prevent me from understanding what they're singing about, which is supposed to be big part of why this is good music - as shown in Dignité). It's beautiful Symphonic Prog, one of the best things when talking about music only (shining example is , but vocals can be tough for some. I'm trying to cope with it as well as I can though. But the most beautiful language in the world for me is English.

4(+), but despite this minor nuisance (as I said, some won't even notice), it's still great.
