Eclipse biography
Canadian outfit ECLIPSE was the creative vehicle of multi-instrumentalist and composer Pierre Gauthier, formed after his former band Aut'chose disbanded.

Their initial self-titled album in 1976 consisted partially of space rock inspired by Pink Floyd and partially more mainstream-oriented works with much less of a progressive attitude. A somewhat split production in terms of style, but one that had a lot of promise.

In 1977 Gauthier decided that his new band needed a makeover though, and he assembled a new cast of musicians to create an album trying to tap into the pop flavour of the day - disco. And the disco-tinged cover versions of tracks like Born to be Wild and You Really Got Me brought the band a great deal of attention, especially among US DJs. But while this second album attracted more attention the band disolved just one year later, and Gauthier moved on to a new band project: Le Show.

Review by gr8dane

4 stars Another dandy from the glorious Prog Quebecois era in the 70s.

Visited Toronto Canada in 76 and frequented many record stores, and spotted this on the new release wall.Loved the cover and after few glances and flipping the cover over a few times,bought it.

Compared to most prog Quebecois I have heard,this is more spacey and very keyboard/moog driven.I would go as far as calling this a spacey prog pop album.Right up my alley. Eclipse is mentioned as being Floydish,and that really shows in the mellow 11 minute first track. Track 2 after it's perky intro sets in to a funky melody with plenty of synth and guitar duelling. Track 3 is a 1 minute filler. Track 4 is a nice jangly pop song with a good drive. Track 5 could be a droney instrumental track taken straight out of Hawkwind's Warrior of the edge of time.At 8 min. it is probably 3 min. too long. Track 6 is another 1 min. filler. Track 7 is like 2 nice prog pop songs put together into one.Nice and catchy. Last track could easily be an Earth and Fire song,sung in both French and English,with a nice Hawkwind finish of the song.

The instrumentation is very good here and Marie-France got a very nice voice that suits the music nicely. The pop aspect (commercial) of this album,and my description may sound like it's a mess ,and may scare off people,but I think it works very well here.One of a kind.

Review by Sean Trane
Special Collaborator Prog Folk

1 stars Eclipse's second album in PA's database is one of those to be avoided at all cost, being one of the worse disco offenders with Alan Sorrenti's later 70's slice wax. Given their debut's promise, this album even received a German release on the Casablanca label (Kiss and Trees, a.o.) with a different artwork, although that one is a lot more fitting for the album's musical contents. Indeed, the Quebecois prog boom of the early to mid-70's received a slow & ugly death throe from the Disco tsunami that swept the "la belle province" from 78 onwards, but Eclipse preceded that by a few months.

Opening on the album's typical track Space Love (the only Eclipse original on this side), a spacey-electronic affected groove that's stuck on a simplistic disco beat >> yuckkkk!!! Similarly (and surprisingly) the Steppenwolf cover Born To Be Wild receives the same treatment, thus making it potentially the worst cover of any kind?. Until you hit Donovan 's Sunshine Superman following it, but worse is yet to come with the simply atrocious Kinks punky classic "You really got me" getting rthe disco treatment. The flipside can't fare worse, even if the energy level is slightly superior, some tracks that could eventually fit in the AOR mould (Bring It Home, Lady) or in the soft-rock vein (Losing our love) and absolutely nothing to redeem the album to the proghead's ears. Best avoided if you ask me.
