PROG REVIEWER
5 stars MORSE CODE were a French Canadian progressive rock outfit that released 3 great mid 70's albums. This four piece band blend rich analog keyboards with distinct bass, guitar, flute and drum interplay. Overall sound is very big and deep really making this album and unbelievable listening experience. With a sound somewhere between GENESIS' "Selling England By The Pound" and ANGE's "Emile Jacotey" this album delivers everything a prog fan would love. On "La Marches Des Hommes" (The March Of The Men) they utilize lots of piano, mellotron, organ, clavinet in a similar way to that of classic GENESIS. Songs are very well constructed and enable the listener to create lots of imagery as you listen with lots of dynamic timing and mood changes. Vocals are exceptionally well done with some nice harmony and of course sung in French. Their most widely recognized piece is the self titled 12 minute epic track which is simply to die for but I also love the rest of the album equally well. Another essential progressive rock album for your collection.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
4 stars This group became one of the first full-out rock outfit in La Belle Province, under the name Morse Code Transmission, developing a naïve English-sung psychedelic rock over their first two albums. While none of those two albums will ever graces the top 20, of Psych rock lists, they were indeed charming but flawed, both are indeed worth a listen, but maybe not to spend the small fortunes the vinyls are fetching, nowadays, none of these having received a CD re-issue, yet! Hint, hint, Sean & Stephen!!!!

As Morse Code Transmission disintegrated, like the psychedelic caterpillar metamorphosing into the progressive butterfly, the group reformed and came into full maturity with this highly regarded album. As the Quebec scene was now reaching its golden hour, so did MC, and their brand of symphonic rock sung in French (as was the case with Harmonium, and later Pollen, Opus-5 and a few more) became in instant hit with the local population. But this was also very limited to their province, as English Canada will stay oblivious to MC.

Down to a quartet (the standard prog quartet) with Keyboardist Christian Simard as chief composer of the music but getting the help of outsider Chantal Dusseault for all of the lyrics, they developed a rather classic symphonic influenced rock in the range of Pollen, Atoll, Ange and a few more. This album, like the following Pro-creation, is a concept one, and is deeply rooted in the progress of mankind. Excellent lyrics and often excellent music, this was part of the classic Quebec albums from the second half of the 70's.

Although Simard is clearly the leader of the group, it is clear that the better tracks are the one written collectively by the group: from the awesome 11-min+ title track, to the hectic Cérémonie De Minuit, to the thoughtful "Qu'est-ce que tu as compris?" and the great lively instrumental Cocktail, the group smokes, blazes, cruises through your mind as a red-hot iron, with their excellent multi-layered vocals and the overall impeccable musicianship. The only weaker tracks being the Simard-only Pays D'Or and the two short tracks Goutte De Pluie and Problème (both sung with a vocal delivery sometimes reminiscent of " Le Grand Jacques" Brel), but hardly anything really bothersome.

The ProgQuebec re-issued (and remastered) version comes with two bonus tracks, none of which are obligatory, on the contrary. The disco remix of the instrumental Cocktail and the single version Compris, being both forgetful and best forgotten.

The first of a run of three classic albums, La Marche Des Hommes is of course more hinted at French speakers, but the singing is relatively accent-less and the lyrics easily understandable, therefore this is well recommended to others progheads also.

4 stars The Quebec progressive scene is not complete without talking about this very good album. The mix of hard rock and progressive rock is noticeable here. The sound of the electric guitar is impressive. Among the similitudes involved, there are Kayak, early Genesis circa Foxtrot and Nektar. The excellent lyrics are not outdated, since they are about the existential, economical & social problems of the World, more than ever present nowadays. The keyboards mainly consist in piano, omnipresent mellotron and organ; "Cocktail" contains an excellent catchy mix of clavinet and mellotron a la Greenslade. There is only one epic track "La Marche Des Hommes", a very progressive song full of organ, mellotron and bold electric guitars like the major progressive bands of the 70's. The one-channel lead vocals on "La cérémonie de minuit" seems to more leave the room to the catchy & pleasant music. The catchy refrain on "Problème" is very soothing. The accessible hit "Qu'est-ce que t'as compris ?" has been aired many many times from every radio station of the province of Quebec, and I guess it is still aired nowadays.

Review by Mellotron Storm
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars I am so impressed with this album and the follow-up "Procreation". Tough for me to pick out which one I like better between the two. Lots of mellotron once again in these excellent Symponic tracks.This is has been a pleasure to listen to.

"La Marche Des Hommes" opens with spacey synths before the organ takes over and powerful outbursts come and go until they stay as the vocals join in before 1 1/2 minutes. Mellotron floods in with a calm before 3 minutes. It's building with vocals and drums.The pulsating organ before 5 minutes with the guitar is very GENESIS-like. Love the sound before 6 1/2 minutes with vocals and mellotron. It returns later around 10 minutes. Beautiful. "Le Pays D'or" opens with piano and reserved vocals. It's fuller 1 1/2 minutes in.The mellotron and guitar are outstanding after 2 1/2 minutes to end it.

"La Ceremonie De Minuit" opens with intricate guitar as drums and vocals join in with pulsating organ. Great sound before 2 minutes as it gets fuller.The guitar starts to solo over top 3 1/2 minutes in. "Cocktail" is a great sounding track with flute. The bass and drums are so impressive. Mellotron blows in too. "Une Goutte De Pluie" has this light beat with reserved vocals as the organ floats in. A fuller sound 1 1/2 minutes in as the drums get louder and piano and mellotron join in. "Qu'est-Ce Que T'as Compris ?" is more dynamic with drums and bass standing out. Vocals and mellotron before a minute as it settles. It kicks back in quickly with organ that starts to pulsate.The guitar after 2 1/2 minutes is excellent. Organ's turn a minute later. So good. "Probleme" opens with the drums building then the vocals, mellotron and bass join in. Guitar follows.It settles late to end it.

The album cover is as stunning as the music.

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Although this album is not praised by critics as much as its follow up, Procreation, I´ve got say I like this one better. Maybe because the classic symphonic side of the group is more evident, specially on the 11+minute title track. Excellent vintage keyboards all over (organ piano, mellotron), very good guitar parts, versatile rhythm section and very good french sung vocals. I guess the vocal parts are the most insteresting part of the whole band appeal, quite unique. Those harmonies are quite charming and deeply rooted in the traditional french music, it was quite ahead of its time (only french band Arrakeen would explore furthermore this fine combination, but in the early 80´s).

For the instrumental part, which is less original, but again very good and very well performend, the influences seem to to be early Genesis, Yes and other prog acts of the 70´s like Nektar or Eloy. One of my favorite tracks is Cocktail with its joyful rhythm, great flute lines and creative use of the clavinet. But clearly there are no weak tracks and the band shows their versatility and ease of creating catchy songs. Nothing too adventurous, of course, but still unique and very good. Production is top notch.

Conclusion: if you like something different, but not too spaced out, with fine mixtures of styles and a strong french element, this band from Quebec might be for you. I was quite pleased to find this album. Four strong stars.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars A hard-edged symphonic album from Morse Code, this incorporates exceptional keyboard playing from Christian Simard. The compositions often take on a heavy, foreboding, doomy edge to them, with La Marche des Hommes in particular sounding rather militant, though not to a Zeuhlish extent. This compelling release, along with strong releases by Maneige and Harmonium, should be enough to convince anyone that 1975 was truly a great year for the prog scene in Quebec, though to be honest I personally find both Maneige's debut and Harmonium's classic Cinquieme Saison are a bit more compelling to this one. (In particular, the vocals seem to be the band's weak point here and certainly do nothing for me.)
