2 stars Three years following the release of "Montreal6AM" somebody in the Maneige camp thought it was a good idea for a once groundbreaking band to realease their swan song, "Images". This 33 minute excursion in soulless drivel does not do justice to the great music the band laid down from '74 to '80, from avant-jazz symphonic to priggish jazz rock. No, this one ended up sounding like the soundtrack to a bad movie. The second side has a bit of life to it and they freely lift riffs from Led Zeppelin, ZZ top, and Tom Petty. The only way I'd recommend this is if you like " library music" like the Guitar of John Renbourn or Soft Machine's Rubber Riff. I like both of those, and this still sounds bad to me.
