5 stars This is an extraordinary album! "Postaeolian train robbery" is one of the most interesting albums that I've ever heard. It goes from the Canterbury Scene classic sound to some weird fusion/acid Jazz and very strange and powerful riffs that make a very unique Prog Rock album. Pascale Son's voice is beautiful; reminds me to Gilli Smyth at some moments and Stella Vander in others.

I don't understand why is COS considered as a Canterbury Scene band: their sound is much more like the classic RIO/Avant-Prog music from bands like Samla Mammas Manna, Henry Cow or even Zeuhl bands like Magma or Zao. The drums and the bass are very disciplined in some moments but also it has very free lines. This album is a whole piece of art, amazing from the start until the end.

Complex album, but very enjoyable; this is one of those albums that make Prog Rock so interesting.

Five stars!!
