5 stars How is this NOT a prog masterpiece? IMHO, Guet-Apens' theatricality and music rate right up there with Gabriel's GENESIS, Parmenter's DISCIPLINE, Hammill's VDGG, Anderson's TULL, Mercury's QUEEN, and little known BABYLON. Guet-Apens is a representative of the high art and theatricality of the greatest rock operas, art rock, theatric symphonic, operatic rock . . . "Capitaine Coeur de Miel" even has some of the dark macabre of Pete Hammill, Puccini, UNIVERS ZERO and PRESENT as well as the uplift of MAGMA and Zuehl. The musicianship behind the music may not have the virtuosity of Banks, Hackett or Collins or the complexity of Genesis or Yes, but it does provide excellent emotional support of the vocals and its messages. I am actually more impressed with the range and expressiveness of Ange's vocals than those of VDGG! (As I am with Matthew Parmenter and DIscipline.) 5 stars all the way!
