3 stars One of the more obscure French bands and albums. The only album from this band. Originally released in 1979 and rescued & re-released by Musea in 1991.

The music on this album comes across as a mix of Van Der Graaf Generator, King Crimson and Mona Lisa. Mostly the latter one. Their music has this typical lush French symph prog sound. But it also has King Crimson's complexity and eccentricity too. The rampant saxophone is very VDGG. But there is also some Magma like weirdness here too. The rhythms here are strange in a Fripp'ish way.

The vocals is both female and male. The instruments are the usual suspects, with the notably addition of the rampant saxophone.

The material here is very good. The lack of any real great tracks here are it's main problem and the reasons for my sparse use of stars. But this is an interesting album who unfortunate drowned in the amount of other good albums released at that time.

3 stars
