5 stars This band has a capacity to explore emotions in a very clear way. It is very interesting how they can go from sadness to happiness when you expect the least. This album is the perfect example of how they can express a different way of epicness, and a very unorthodox way to show sadness or beauty by the art. Waahrz is an example of how Magma can make a hybrid of something completely new to the prog and bring a erudite feeling by its piano playing. Tsaď is also another example of how deep that epicness can be shown in the Zeuhl. It is astonishing how the voices are the true main instrument in their musics. That orchestrated sentiment, mixing with the happiness and hate shown in Öhst and Zahrr are the highlights in the album. The mystical aftermath sounds in Les Hommes Sont Venus closes the album with an air of continuity, and you wait for something as impressive as this album was after the first listen. All these feelings mixed together show how deep their music is even after so many years, and even though they maintain loyal to their first albums, all that originality echoes again in the shadow of their Kobaian language. This album is essential to show how powerful Zeuhl can be, giving an example to those who like to explore deeper in the progressive that Magma is still alive.
