5 stars Lots of fun to listen to. Et Cetera gets to the point early, with the magnificent opening two songs. Dynamic and cerebral, yet accessible and easy on the ears. The presence of a female vocalists adds a jazzy element, with throaty, whispy voices propelling the music. Brilliant instrumental passages intertwine the dynamic flow that links song to song.

Perhaps it is the Gentle Giant record they never recorded. I hear strains of King Crimson as well, plus even a little Canterbury. Plus other fusioneer sounds make an appearance like what Jan Hammer was doing at the time, and the local jazzrock scene in French Canada molds Et Cetera's sound here.

Happy times for this brief record that's tough to get a hold of. I like it and I think fringe prog listeners might too. It's brevity appeals to me and while the end isn't the fireworks I think should end a true classic, it's five bold stars for me nonetheless.
