4 stars Guillaume Perret's debut album is really important event on French prog fusion scene. Professional sax player with strong jazz background, he collaborates on this album with Magma's veteran bassist Philippe Bussonnet. Other collaborator guitarist Jim Grandcamp played with Eric Serra and Jannick Top between others.

Music there on this album is not zeuhl, but very energetic and quite dark and heavy jazz fusion, but with pure jazz rock roots. Distorted bass in combination with fast and very complex drums builds quite zeulish, dark atmosphere, and guitar adds tension and nerve in very rocking manner. At the same time, sax is more free-jazzy, even avant sounding in moments.

There are no mellow tunes (happily) and relaxed romantic moments (I am so happy!) on this album at all. Mid- to fast tempo instrumentals, very precisely played, but far not too much polished, with tension and nerves, sharp sounds and complex improvs.Not very usual sound for French fusion, and possibly even more attractive because of that!
