Review by Mellotron Storm
3 stars Frederic L'Epee formerly the lead guitarist for SHYLOCK is joined by another lead guitarist to offer up a style not that different from KING CRIMSON's Discipline album. The guitars intertwine and weave together much like Fripp and Belew.

This is heard most prominantly on the song "Vers Le Nord".There are drums and bass on this record as well, but the guitars dominate the sound. The sound here is restrained and pleasant without much variation. There is little in the way of outbursts or solos. This is a band playing together as one for the most part, and it's very impressive. Intricate and interplay are two words that come to mind a lot. I must say though that I much prefer L'Epee's next band YANG which is very dynamic with some great angular guitar. The final song "From The North" was interesting because the guitars almost sound like electronics the way they sort of bubble quickly.

This is in my opinion more for guitar fans or guitar players. An hour of this is a bit much for me though.
