Review by Carl floyd fan
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars This isn't as good as the classic Clearlight Symphony but its a good cd if you want to get something new from clearlight. I like the intensity of the key part 1 and 2, especially as it picks up pace towards the end! - very nice. The difference between this cd and CS1 is this has vocals, but thats okay because they add to the overall appeal. Still, this loses a few points because it doesn't quite measure up to CS but a good effort and should be the 2nd cd ppl check out.

2 stars Third album following the cosmic masterpiece "Forever blowing bubbles", "Les contes du singe fou" released two years later in 1977, shows a new direction in Clearlight's music. The music is now dominated by piano and violin. It results in a more classical feel and a symphonic jazzrock orientation to the music. Another new element is the omnipresent English vocals by Ian Bellamy: A half success, giving a more conventional style to Clearlight's music. Another weak point is the drum which is binary and heavy in a pejorative way. A light cosmic touch is still present thanks to Tim Blake galactic synthe work and some instrumental moments remain quite good, despite the drum weakness. Overall, a disappointing album after the two first masterpieces.

4 stars Post hippie glam fantasy like cover art greets us and I have to say that it's ugly. Yes, it is, combination this "man" body (with big cleavage, so usual for this era - I simply don't get it) and on the top of this rotten decadency, head of an ape, looking clever as usual. Sinister combination, certainly not the one that I would be able to like.

Slowly building, then fading, while entertaining us along the way with what amuses us, prog listeners best - good deal of music. That's first song here is divided into three parts, but that doesn't matter, because they all sounds same. Soliouque is quite instrumental, cold as ice and as much artificial. Time Skater would be easily able to win some prize for some weird name competition, but the song itself provides just good prog of then time. As you can easily see, I'm not able to feel with these songs too well, but also I don't consider them so bad.

4(-), because some things simply has to be like that.

Review by Warthur
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars Don't let the monkey on the cover fool you - Les Contes du Singe Fou is Clearlight's attempt to get serious. A concept album with a nebulous sci-fi theme, the piece is once again dominated by Cyrille Verdeaux, whose piano is prominent to an extent unparalleled on any previous Clearlight album aside from Clearlight Symphony. Ian Bellamy, bless him, simply isn't as nice to listen to as the wonderful vocalists such as Brigitte Roy or (on loan from Hatfield and the North) Amanda Parsons and Ann Rosenthal who featured on Forever Blowing Bubbles, and overall the music loses the unpredictable and whimsical edge that I associate with Clearlight. It's competently performed but I can't see any good reason to own it.

4 stars The name of the album is Les Contes du Singe Fou but all lyrics are sung in english. Maybe little despair for commercialism? Who knows. Anyways Clearlight is in my mind the best french-progressive band ever. While not alienating listeners with avant-garded obscurities theres still a fine progressive ... (read more)

4 stars This lovely cd by Clearlight hasn't been reviewed on this website yet. Therefore, I have chosen to post my review. This album is a damn fine album by Clearlight, however , it has some vocals that aren't really good. They don't disturb or awful, it's just that they are not clear, and it's hard ... (read more)
