3 stars Hardly known outside of PA where it sits in the top fusion album list, this Canadian fusion album is quite a gem and a great example of mid-70s fusion.

It's harly longer then 38 minutes but you won't find one moment that lacks drive and inspiration. The occasional French vocal adds some extra variation but most of the album is instrumental, with compositions are rhythmically as well as melodically very strong, making this album an ideal treat for fusion and symphonic prog fans alike.

Seemingly without effort the band merges influences from technical progressive rock such as Yes, ELP and Gentle Giant with the then contemporary funk-fusion of Weather Report and Return to Forever. There are even with some avant-garde elements, but they remain subtle and non-obtrusive. All of this comes with a very spontanuously rocking attitude, bright spirits and a sound as colourful as the album art.

Not a masterpiece of fusion but worth hunting down for lovers of progressive rock and fusion alike.
