2 stars Ophiucus is a french band, that in my opinion just barely made it in to the ranks here at Prog Archives. I know I struggled with the decision at the time. Their sound is mostly a blend of early seventies pop folk styles, primarily reminiscent of Simon and Garfunkel. There are also smatterings of blues and bluegrass.

What won me over were the more experimental pieces, like the opener, Prenez, Donnez that is primarily rhythmic, but has various styles dropped in. There are also a few tracks that are very psychedelic, and bring the excitement level of the album up a bit.

Despite their obscurity, Ophiucus created an album very well fitted for it's time. But now, it pales somewhat.

Evolver | 2/5 |
