3 stars Ange continues their journey with their second album and I am more than happy to tag along on their journey.

I am a more than pleased about their sound and their use of their mothertongue in their music. Ange's blend of English symphonic prog and French folk and traditional music aka Jaques Brel is a revelation. I happens to think the French prog scene as a whole is very interesting.

Unfortunate, Ange has shifted the balance some notches towards French trad music here and slightly more away from English symphonic prog. A lot more King Crimson elements is also present on this album. The loser here is the melodies. There are really no great melodies here and little else to enjoy. The music is much more rhythm and theatre dominated than their melody orientated debut album. A step not in the right direction for Ange.

This album is let down for me. But a couple of good songs means it scrapes in at a barely three stars album. But it is still a lot inferior to their debut album.

3 stars (barely)
