3 stars Obviously I'm having the same problem with this excessively symphonic and highly classical tinged, melodic and romantic kind of prog as my fellow reviewer Sean Trane. I can't change it but I'm just not able to get crazy about such stuff. Especially when it comes to almost crooner type of vocals I'm getting more and more allergic against. This is not the case with other French bands even coming from the pure symphonic field like Ange, Carpe Diem or Clearlight which I'm adoring. Whereas Pulsar was offering here on their amongst progheads highly acclaimed third effort not much that can hold my interest not to mention of ignition of at least a slight fascination. It appears to me that they tried to hold some tension during most of the two long compositions but actually there isn't anything exciting happening finally and the listener (at least me) is left quite unsatisfied after the CD has finished. Overall there are just a couple of great enjoyable moments for me in the second track which are immediately cancelled by setting in of the vocals that I do not like at all. Really pity, but Pulsar will not enter my list of favorite French bands.
