3 stars Honey elk; the type of dreams the hibernating grizzly bears in Alaska have at this very moment.

The French zeuhl band with the same name on the other hand have had their dreams about Magma before they commited these 25 minutes over two songs to a master tape in a studio somewhere. It is not known if Christian Vander & the rest of Magma dreams about grizzly bears, though.

Twenty-five minutes, two tracks. That is the bare bones of this release which is listed as an album here. EP is probably a more fitting listing, though. But it does not matter at all. The music is very Magma'esque. The music is driven by a saxophone as the main solo instrument, supported by some good vocals (in Kobaian ?) and the usual keyboards, bass and drums. The music is not particular dark and the songs has a bit of a symphonic prog setup over it. The music also have some avant-garde RIO feel over it too.

The quality is good throughout, without offering anything particular news to this genre or to the mankind. The first song Stoyz is more zeuhl like while the second song Do Zé Vé Loy is more avant-garde like and based on a mood than technical brilliance.

In short; this is a good zeuhl album which should appeal to any zeuhl fan. It is not an impressive release by any means and it will not win this band or this genre any new fans.

3 stars
