3 stars If all compositions were on the level of the epic titletrack (almost 16 minutes) this album would have gained more attention: great, typical French vocals, an intro with twanging electric guitar and strings, a splendid build up, some great interludes (featuring flute and piano) and a breathtaking finale delivering magnificent eruptions with Mellotron and piano. These moments can compete with the best from ELP, Genesis and King Crimson (like the titletrack from Museo Rosenbach their masterpiece Zarathustra)! The other compositions are OK (with echo's from Pink Floyd and Genesis) but they lack the tension and dynamics from the titletrack. Nonetheless this is a good and very moving album with a lush organ sound and great guitarwork. Erik Neuteboom
