Potemkine ended up as a clean cut fusion band on their third and final album. No zeuhl in sight, as far as I can detect. Well, the bass and some tangents can be called zeuhl, but they are also typical fusion and jazz melody lines too.

The music on Nicolas II is pretty nifty with a hammering Hammond organ dueling with electric guitars. The bass is always present and the drums are also always there. The music is pretty close to Mahavishnu Orchestra, soundwise. Unfortunate for Potemkine; not in the same league.

The quality is pretty good throughout. There is not greatness about this album though and the material is pretty anonymous too. Only a track like Raspoutine can be regarded as a very good track. There is a good drive throughout that track. The rest is OK but nothing more. It is a safe album and that's all.

3 stars (barely)
