From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars These newcomers perform a superb Progressive rock. The musicians play a contrasted and refined music that alternates energetic themes, acoustic parts with sophisticated orchestrations and beautiful vocal parts in French. This music can hardly be compared to other French progressif rock bands'. Although this mature work clearly displays a large palette of international influences - Spock's Beard, King Crimson, Queensryche, Genesis, . - the variety and the substance of the compositions is really splendid and all the clichés were avoided. These four talented musicians worked for three years and got involved into a really tough work : every harmonic aspect, every rhythmic pattern and every melody were polishd up. All the artwork was also very carefully dealt with : it is a good illustration of this ambitious concept album. In a nutshell, a definitely excellent first album ! Listen to the samples on their website and get one copy of "L'Arbre-Cimetière", you won't regret it !
