Prog Reviewer
3 stars The Strand of the Future is Pulsar's second album, in which they cross the line to the symphonic-flavoured space rock of their debut (Pollen) to present a space rock-tinged symphonic prog style. Although flutist Roland Richard gets to show off his talents in a few brief pastoral interludes (on which the Genesis influence is especially apparent), for the most part the most prominent player is Jacques Roman, whose synthesisers dominate the sound of the album. In particular, the band seem enthusiastic to slather thick layers of Mellotron over everything, to an extent which I don't think actually works; sometimes more Mellotron isn't always better Mellotron. Still, a credible enough contribution to the symphonic prog genre, although I wouldn't put a high priority on obtaining it.
