Really good stuff here and again hard to choose. I think for me it's down to Halloween and Jean-Paul Prat.
I couldn't find any samples for Halloween which is a real shame, this album needs to be heard! Any of you who uses spotify can check this album.

Vote away...

I honestly didn't expect that...Embarrassed
I haven't listened to this album in a few years now, I remember it definitely had some good moments but I also recall a bad production that brought the music down a bit, though now I'm curious how would it sound after all these years.

Unless it's a tie Tongue
I had a feeling you'd go for Vannier, a very unique and eclectic album, that combination of orchestra and prog rock full of oddly ideas is just superb, gorgeous sound too ha?

It's between Zaar, Vannier and Pratt.  I decided to give Zaar a vote. Hurdy Gurdy rock n' roll !

Vannier for me; I adore that album. It's one of my very favourite albums.  Prat's Masal would my second choice, followed by Zaar.

I'm with Greg on this (although that Zaar album keeps alluding me). Vannier for me as well. L'Enfant Assassin des Mouches is a high water mark for French experimental music imho.

I didn't even have time to properly comment on my own poll so thanks for bringing it up again Dave, I know how much you love that Vannier album but I didn't think you'd vote for it over Prat!

Thanks everyone for voting, this is very close and quite surprising too. Eventually I picked Halloween, I'm just crazy about this album and the fact that it's so obscure makes me want to vote for it again if I could
