3 stars The first Ange album is a great showcase for the interesting Hammond organ sound achieved by the Decamps brothers, with Christian playing the actual instrument and Francis adding effects. The consequence of this is that the band is able to match the Mellotron and synthesiser-drenched sound of major progressive rock bands of the time using their cheaper (and more reliable in concert) piano and organ - yes, amazingly the Mellotron sound on this album is in fact a modified Hammond organ. As a proof of concept, it's interesting enough, though as far as Genesis-influenced theatrical prog goes there are better Ange albums than this - worth listening to if you are a major fan of the band, but otherwise I'd go for one of their more developed albums.
