This album is damn good, I assure you...Additionally you can download VIEUX CARRE's debut from their site for free...What do we have here then?...So,VIEUX CARRE are surely influenced by the italian progressive rock movement of the 70's,but they also seem to admire the UK symphonic prog scene (GENESIS and GENESIS like bands)...Add some few jazz elements here and there and you'll get the picture...All the tracks of the album are of high quality,generally you'find carefully smooth symphonic arrangements but I seem to like more the tracks where the singer sings in his native language than the english ones cause' the later ones have a slightly neo-prog feel similar to MAGRATHEA...that's not necessarilly bad but the italian ones have the 70's italian feeling which I really love...The only negative thing I'd say is the production of the album,a big problem for all the unknown underground bands,since all the songs seem to have been recorded live and not in the studio...

Big big surprise,VIEUX CARRE will fill your nights and days with some excellent both complex and melodic symphonic/art rock so hurry and download their first release from their website for free,you won't regret it...
