Review by Mellotron Storm
3 stars 3.5 stars is the perfect rating for me and I can't hit 4 stars because I just don't enjoy this enough. Still this 5 piece from France put out a pretty good Jazz Rock album back in 1979, their only release. We have a female keyboardist(yay) and the guitarist and bass player composed all the music on this all instrumental album. We also get sax and that would include tenor, soprano and alto. I'm not big on that scratchy guitar style but he does change that style on some songs. The bass is upfront and well done, excellent drumming too. These guys were players but I feel there's something minor on every tune that I'm just not into. So no, I'm not all in but glad to have spent some time with this one.

The closer is almost 16 minutes long and without question the song you want to hear from this album. There's very little that I'm not into on this one except for that smooth sounding sax very late. The title track is actually on a Psychedelic compilation recording put out by Purple Records. Not sure how that ended up on a Psychedelic record but oh well, and it's probably my least favourite track. The other song that I do like is "Dinosaures". I'm not into the way too fast paced intro and ending but the rest is gravy. All in all a well done Jazz record that just doesn't suit my tastes too well.
