2 stars A French one of wonder.

A very tasty cover artwork hides a bit of a quandrum. Hence this review. Starting out as a bit of Caravan esque Canterbury scene album, it soon turns towards early Genesis. There is hints of Trespass and Foxtrot here. But the album also turns towards overbloated Phil Collins songs and mostly stays there. I can also hear the Italian band The Watch, themselves a Genesis copy, here. The sound is down my alley, in other words. It is polished and commercial.

The problems with this album is the total lack of any good songs here. There are sporadic good melody lines. But most of this album sounds like an overbloated Genesis without the good songs. And I can assure you I have tried to find good songs here. I have tried to like this album, but I cannot. Hence my stars....... or lack of it. Sorry.

2.5 stars
