4 stars After the majesty of L'ARAIGNEE-MAL, pretty much anything that followed it couldn't be perceived as anything but a letdown. It's rather surprising, then, that TERTIO is as good as it is.

Without Aubert or Gehin to fill out the sound, it relies on Taillet to pick up the slack. To be fair, he has enriched his sounds some. He still uses the Solina and the Clavinet as his main axes so to speak, but he pushes as far as his sounds will let him.

Fortunately, the compositions are strong enough to make the sounds (almost) beside the point. "Paris, C'est Fini" opens the album on an authoritative note and the lengthy, two-part "Tunnel" has a sound and feel quite similar to the fantastic "L'Araignée-Mal" suite. Definitely your next best-bet as far as Atoll albums go.
