4 stars Obscure French progressive rock legends formed in early 70's in Lyon.They were named after the phenomenon of the dark sun in outer space,showing some evidence of their developing sound.Entering 1975 PULSAR released the LP ''Pollen'' with the famous cosmic cover.Finally people could listen to what PULSAR were all about.The spacey atmosphere of PINK FLOYD was wrapped around symphonic textures with slow-tempo arrangements,sometimes led by atmospheric synthesizers (think of KLAUS SCHULZE),other ones by trully mournful vocals and haunting spoken parts.Every guitar solo in this release is very emotional,some instrumental parts are dominated by superb flutes,while I'm totally surprised by the deep and dark bass lines of Phillipe Roman.Not accidentally the production of this work is quite moody,pushing PULSAR's sound to a darker and more psychedelic level.A trully personal and marvellous release,which appeal to fans of imaginative soundscapes and psychedelic sounds.
