4 stars There seem to be mixed reviews on this one. But really I think there is far to much to like about this album to give it any less than 4 stars. Granted it grew on me but after repeated listens I was hooked. The closest comparisson I can make in the sound department is the space fusion sound of classic Gong minus the goofyness. Its really hard for me not to give this 5 stars but its knocked down to 4.25 star range with vocals that sometimes mar the overall appeal. At times it sounds like the singer is almost constipated. Other times, they are perfectly fine. Regardless it brings the score down a little. Also, sometimes the music is directionless and boarders on noodling. Other times, these guys are spot on with their jams, especially the middle of "Publiophobie" (about six minutes in). The flute and sopransaxophon add nice dimension to to music that is otherwise generic (but skilled) space rock. In the end its a nice fusion-esque cd.
