4 stars Oh, my...! As you know that this superb French Prog Artist has released five albums so far. The first engine to start a car was and is this album, Hallowwn Part One. And nobody mentioning about this surprising debut album from Hallowwen since a lot of people talked about their album Laz and Merlin.

Well, wihout this album, it seems touching the leg of an elephant. All of their album have got faily good crititiism as far as I know. Prog fans used to cateorize thier first two albums are dark vein of symphonic prog and the Merlin is the classic. Well, it's your preference whatever you can put the name of it.

For me the 2nd album LAZ seems jazz oriented and the Merlin seems so story telling album like the Genesis-The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. Now you got the point. By sound, you can't miss this album and I'm sure this alum shoud be picked if you are fans of Halloween. Or no matter who you are if you are into dark symphonic progressive music.

Still a difficult music that I can't understand and it never will be due to the nuance and the language.However they sing in both Engish and French.

I would like to suggest that this band is like Magma meets Yes or Primus meets Yes especially when you listended to the rhythm section of their playing. Dark and Mysterious sound from the Halloween that I really would like for you guys to checkt it out!

Sure, they are much better than Ange in so many ways but the reputation and the recognition of the name value. Sorry for fans of Ange. I have no regret!

Musically, please enjoy the sound of a violin an the composition of their music.
