Symphonic Prog

3 stars A French band named after my favorite drug.

Their music is symphonic prog too. Well, more neo-prog than symphonic prog. The sound and music on La Citadelle is very neo-prog at times. Then again, there is also a lot of Yes in the music here. The French language vocals also draws parallells with the likes of Ange and Magnesis. But mainly; neo prog.

The keyboards is very flat at times. The keyboards sound is very much from the 1980s with no warmth and no life. The same goes for the guitar sound. The vocals is good though. In short; I am not happy at all about the sound which really does this album a great disservice.

The songs are really good though. Most of them are epics and La Cour Des Miracles being the best song here. But I have heard a lot better albums than this album. A good album and that's it, really.
