4 stars This one I have to say is the best ANGE-album since their glorious time in the 70's. In fact the only one left from the old line-up is Christian Decamps who gathered a bunch of talented young musicians around him, amongst others his son Tristan. And listening to this album one can really feel this new and progressive input. It sounds much more modern and diverse like most of their rather weak albums from the 90's or 80's.

The first song is already an amazing good modern and progressive rock song. You can find everything on this record, whether it's symphonic rock, hardrock, chanson, folkrock or humorous pop-rock. But despite all modernity it's still quite reminiscent of the "old" ANGE. There is only one song which is a bit weaker than the rest, that is Gargantua. Christian Decamps managed as well to find a lot of great and well-known guest musicians for this album, i.e. Jan Akkerman or Australian Tommy Emmanuel (who played together with Eric Clapton, Chet Atkins, John Farnham, Joe Walsh and Leo Kottke). BTW just as an extra interesting fact: Steven Wilson, mastermind of the band PORCUPINE TREE was producing two songs on this album.

I can highly recommend this album to anyone who likes music with many different styles involved and doesn't mind to listen to french lyrics. A clear case for a 4 stars rating!!!
