2 stars For those who have already discovered the fantastic universe of Clearlight, the music of Christian Boule in solo is perfectly un necessary, excepted for the talented guitar solo parts. Totally un inspired, despite of the presence of Clearlight keyboardist's Cyrille Verdeaux. The compositions deliver sloppy, laughable, ultimately boring songs for various sorts of spacey rock, freak & roll musical structures. The child like voice of the woman singer is indigestible. The only positive point in this musical "circus" is Boule's very convincing, melodic, technical, heavy guitar solos. It really saves the album from mediocrity. The opening track is the most consistent moment of the album, a catchy repetitive guitar pattern in a similar vein than Gottsching's inventions for electric guitar with an incredibly powerful, brilliant electric guitar solo. We are near to Clearlight magic musical symphony. After that the rest of the album is dull. The self title track is a funny composition with a "silly" hippie flavour. "Cristal palace" is a gentle ballad, interesting if it was only instrumental. "22 Broad Street" is a rock 'n roll composition which sounds terribly old dated. "Radio Arc en Ciel" is an interlude for organ and keyboard. "Aqua Deva" is the best tune after the introduction, an ethereal dreamscape with celestial organ and synth voice imitation. It is directly followed by "Inter Galactic Cosmic triolet", a "trippy" song with repetitive guitar lines, "hypnotic" effects and saxophone passages. The bonus track "Estelle future" is a horrible mechanical, soft composition with ridiculous lyrics and a mix of clean, distorted guitar textures. Two stars for Boule's impressive guitar work and Cyrille Verdeaux's piano arrangements.

4 stars Thanks BaldJean for the review! untill a few days ago, I didn't know Christian Boule made any solo albums. Drawing inspiration from his work with Clearlight Symphony and Steve Hillage, this album reflects the textural depth and imagination of the fantastic Clearlight, containing as it does Cyr ...

4 stars This is a very good album in the space-rock vein, proving that the genré was not dead in 1977. The beginning opener "Elastick Minute" somehow reminds me of Ash Ra Tempel's "Inventions for Electric Guitar" and also of the beginning of the track "Allez Ali Baba Blacksheep Have You Any Bull[&*!#] ...
