5 stars I got this LP by mail from Canada yesterday. In my oppinion the most beautiful effort of Maneige. Truely important thing or in other words maybe the basement of this band (and so in music in general) is generous and juicy spectum of sounds (vibes, xylophone, timpani, gong, flutes, clarinettes, saxes, guitars, basses)... These longisgh compositions on this LP are usually gentle and kind, splendingly developed - with little culminations and sometimes a bit darker suspenses. Maybe listening to the second side of LP the intensity of music grows. What a bass guitar in the beginning of Une Année Sans Fin! Jean Jacques (not dedicated to Rousseau but seemingly to Beauchamps) continues good tension and the end of this composition (specially guitar and bass) proclaims Maneige's more jazzrock-orientated end of seventies (thanks for possibility to listen MP3 of Jean-Jacques - therefore I decided to order this LP from Canada!). Galerie III - the last piece - brings us back to the anticipation what we heard in the beginning of longside composition Le Rafiot. Great album and mellow walking up to Les Porches!
