4 stars This is an underrated French band, often wrongly included in the Zeuhl wave. In "Mexico" Ergo Sum play indeed an original mix of folk-rock-blues with a jazzy touch, and the rough vocal of Lionel Ledissez adding something more. The nine album tracks show an eclectic and very gifted band. The guitarist Michel Leonardi and the violinist Roland Meynet are the most brilliant players, togheter with piano player Jean Guérin, especially on long tracks like "I know your mother" or "Faces". Evocative atmospheres, nearly psychedelic sometimes, alternating with brilliant rock song like "Night road", while "Albion impressions" stands out for its jazzy and delicate mood.

I think Ergo Sum is an exciting surprise for all Prog fans loving bands like Family or East OF Eden.
