5 stars French unit FORGAS BAND PHENOMENA was formed back in 1997, with drummer Patrick Forgas as the principal member. Following two initial productions in the 90's they signed to the US label Cuneiform Records in 2005 for their third studio album. "Acte V" from 2012 is the band's fifth outing, and their third on Cuneiform Records.

Forgas Band Phenomena has made a strong, coherent and high quality album with "Acte V". Instrumental progressive rock residing somewhere within the jazz-rock universe, but of a kind that will give it appeal also beyond aficionados of that particular style. Fairly challenging but accessible progressive rock, as excellently made as performed, and with a live DVD attached that adds quite a lot in the Value-for-Money department. Obviously a production that comes with a high recommendation attached.

Windhawk | 5/5 |
