From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars I first heard the epic title song on a progressive rock radio, I was sold right away.

The vinyl LP had the song split in two halfs, but the CD version contains the "version 2" which is the epic glued together again. The music and vocals on the album are very strange, but that's normal with Zeuhl right?

The epic is great, you really get the feeling that you're on some far away planet with a lot of magma and lava. It slowly, but surely, builds up to a nice climax. The other songs are a tad lesser, but I'm an epic lover so this doesn't say that the other songs are bad. Orc Alarm is quite funny sounding even though I doubt that it was intended this way) and Coltrane Sundia is a beautiful song. Essential for Zeuhl lovers all over the world, must hear for the rest of all proggers!

Autoband | 5/5 |
