4 stars This is totally different in terms of acceptance level for me as compared to Magma. Univers Zero for me is better than what Magma offers in terms of creativity in creating such a tight music composition. Yes, there are some repetitive chords here and there but the band has inserted varied sounds and breaks just to make them not boring. Take "Falling Rain Dance" (4:12) you will hear good combination of eastern melody combined with the rhythm section of a big band. "Partch's X-Ray" (5:21) sounds like a horror music. "Temps Neufs" (4:56) explores the sound effects from keyboard and intense brass and woodwind music which makes it interesting. "Mellotronic" (4:04) provides eastern music style with excellent variations of acoustic guitar, mandolin and long sustain keyboard work. It's bit unstructured but it has great enjoyment in terms of surprises through breaks. It's quite adventurous, I think. It applies the same to "Variations on Mellotronic's Theme" (3:04). "Meandres (Meanderings)" (9:38) is the best track of this album. The music shows the great combination of brass and woodwind augmented with piano work.

It's an excellent addition to any prog music collection. Keep on proggin' ..!
