5 stars Album number two from Pierre Zalkazanov. Here he takes perhaps a bit more melodic and rhythmic approach than he did with Green Ray, but still retains all that wonderful '70s cosmic trippiness that I came to love of Green Ray. "Moebius 256", "Moebis 301" and "Enymga" are all rather short and shows a more melodic approach, but with that irresistible '70s vibe going for it. "Pentitude" and "An Zero" are lengthier pieces, a lot of it showing a more rhythmic approach as he uses sequencers here. The back cover shows Zanov in a pose very similar to the back cover of Jean Michel Jarre's Oxygene, which probably isn't too surprising, given Jarre was a contemporary and Oxygene did come out in France towards the end of 1976, many months before its international release in the summer of 1977. Zanov is one of those electronic musicians who have fallen through the cracks. While I feel Green Ray is a better album overall, this is still excellent and I recommend it to lovers of '70s electronic music.
