Le trip est fini, chu loin de chez moi, comme Jim Morrison Paris, si vous pouvez comprendre... (The trip is over, I am far away from homme, like Jim Morrison in Paris, if you can understand...) This is what used to say Lucien Francoeur of Aut'Chose (a semi-proggish urban violent poetry-inspired 70s Quebec band). Well, this is how I felt after nearly camping in front of my progressive music store to get that album when it was released. What a disappointment! But what was I really hoping? That a band that was so brillant and released one of my top-ten album of all- time more than 20 years ago would then come back at 45-50 years old in the 90s with an other masterpiece?

Let's be honest: this album is not bad. You can put it in your CD player without having the intense desire to bang your head on the wall in pain. You can actually enjoy this music: the sound is good, the arrangements too; one can see there was work done on that album. But guess what? I prefer the sloppy technique and pitiful sound of the "Live" album to this one. PASSION is what is missing. Or maybe creativity. Or both. Those guys went to musical college and they know how to play. They are maestro of their art. But sometimes, the trip is over, you are far from home, and even if you are the best in the world at any art you just don't have anything left to say with your technique.

Overall, I feel guilty actually blaming those guys: I admire them so much. What they did was so great, so new, so inspiring. Even this album is not bad... But I can't be honest and say this is a good album in comparison to what they did before. It is a correct album, which any Locanda delle Fate collector should have in his collection. But if you are new to this band, PLEASE do not start with this one! 2.4/5.0
