4 stars Recently ProgQuebec reissued L'Engoulevent's album L'Ile Ou Vivent Les Loups and adding as bonus track their second album recorded under the Etoifilan name. Obviously this release is dominated by their debut release and the booklet reflects this well, but the second album is definitely worthy of its predecessor if you can forget its more childish theme. As a matter of fact, Etoifilan is maybe more worthy of the proghead's attention.

For the musical description of both albums, please read the two separate album reviews, but know that the folk influences donate much of both albums, and there are enough musical twists that most prog folk fans should find this release quite enjoyable, but will be more if you understand French, the singing is fairly accent less and therefore rather easy for non-natives. On the downside I must say that I find that ProgQuebec could've respected both albums' original artworks a bit better.

While not really all that essential, this album reflects very well La Belle Province's rural state of mind in those years. If not extraordinary musically-speaking this album is a remarkable example of a prog folk release of a province that release a few gems in the genre during that decade. And the fact that both f their album are reunited on a single Cd makes it hard to resist.
