3 stars As you might have read in some prior reviews of mine for this band, I was quite alien to their music (except to their great debut) and the genre they are catalogued on PA is rather challenging. Nonetheless, I decided to go through and review each of their studio albums. this decison was fully dedicated to the memory of my fellow prog friend Antoine (Febus).

At this time of their existence, the fully improvised jazz feel has turned into a more structured and symphonic one. But don't expect anything too prog on this album. In my sense, it is only more bearable than most of their prior "experiences".

I knew beforehand that I would have a very though moment with "Soft Machine" while reviewing their works. My major concern was to pay tribute or challenge to my prog friend Antoine/ Febus.

For many reasons which are totally alien to my objective taste, I will rate this album with three stars although there are few great moments to share here. Just about average.

If anybody can highlight some shadow of the Canterbury style in here, I would be delighted. This is a good jazz-rock album.

No more, no less. Three stars.
