The only other one I know is the debut.  I have these, too, and I like the fact that they lightened up a little.   Big smile

I haven't heard Implosion yet, so I won't vote.  Plus, I've only heard Uzed once (last night).

I remember reading somewhere (liner notes for the new reissue of Heresie maybe?) that the band loved driving around in black clothing and when asked what kind of music they played, respond with "funeral music."  Seems they had good fun playing such dark and dreary stuff. LOL

Of this trio, I'd go with the latest, Clivages which has them reinvigorated, refreshed, good ideas which are well executed. Uzed comes close second.
But any particular reason you picked Uzed but not any of the others: The Hard Quest and Rhythmix (not that I would have picked them) ?

I only have four so far. Embarrassed

The thing I like about Uzed is that it's one of those albums that makes the case that '80's music didn't totally suck when it came to prog.

UZed is the one I'd recommend, because it's the blueprint for most of UZ's later studio albums (Implosion excepted)

"Heresie" and "Ceux Du Dehors" are matched in my view on their 70s-80s material.
 
For their 90s-00s material, my fave one is their latest release "Clivages", which is also also my face 2010 prog release (matched with Frogg café's "Batless Edge").
