5 stars Very tasty zeuhl. Reminds me of Kultivator, with many resemblances with Canterbury scene music (I call some jazzy zeuhl as canterbury zeuhl.. but as a canterbury this isn't so disjointed but smooth jazz), and nice bright female vocals in the background (though the music is still instrumental). I think Abus Dangereux is more plain but maybe even more complicated. symphonic. Sounds are very comfortable and full - like the compositions are also. Bass is thrombling like DŁn's, but there's more jazz fusion elements, sometimes quite funky. Melodies and rhythms are catchy and there isn't too much "headless" jazz improvisation. Le Roy es Mort, Vive le Roy; Funk au Chateau and Ballade Courte are very good songs, but the whole albums is very full and excellent. Eskaton and Pseu are quite original bands, but so is this. I recommend this album for everyone who like psychedelic and pompous music, because there's really psychedelic moments here. I have more than 70 zeuhl albums and this is maybe my favourite, at least as a whole, not boring at all. Absolutely necessary for all zeuhl fans, but also for fusion and Hatfield and the North and National Health friends.
