5 stars The second work released in 1975 "L'Araignee-Mal". Great masterpiece where the dense fantasy world is drawn by superior technique and expression. It is a work that mixed YES with KING CRIMSON. Music is romantic. For instance, a delicate emotion is put in the vocal of Andre Balzer. It is matchless only music. It is a unique artist. It keeps exquisite deeply and violently and is lucid. This work expanded the possibility of rock further. It is a work that represents progressive rock of Europe with the work of OSANNA and FOCUS.

The feature of music is darkness and cohesiveness. I got a hint of the madness in the synthesizer and the guitar of "Le Photographe Exorciste". The sound is far dark compared with YES and ARTI+MESTIERI. "Le Voleur D'extase" is a difficult tune.
