4 stars Dated 1974, this fascinating as well sinister live from a dissonant band such as Magma was an important event, above all for the so called "Zeuhl" Music (think of the controversial French avant-garde albums, except on "Eros" by Dun, perhaps the best and too much intricate work of all time within this music accept or refuse them as for their difficult features, in their coherent nature!!).Nevertheless their lack of precise melodies, except on several interesting but disagreeable vocalizations, even by paying their tribute to Coltrane, make their job a complex and often unbearable number, which can disturb the common listener.well I don't get crazy for their gloomy tunes of free music, in this sort of "ritual" mysticism , but of course -sometimes- I recognize the cleverness of their efforts inside, especially those ones by Didier Lockwood (an underrated English guitarist).

At the end erase "one star" at least, especially if you're not patient!
