4 stars Here's one that could very well rival Anglagard's _Epilog_. Relatively hard to find now, but the 20 minute _Quartus Frénésis_ is certainly one of the highlights of the '90s prog. scene and definitely a Canadian prog.rock masterpiece on par with anything from Rush, FM, Max Webster and Maneige. Entirely instrumental, it basically features everything one would like about the French scene from the mid to late '70s such as bands like Arachnoid, Carpe Diem, Asia Minor and Pulsar. Maybe throw in a little Univers Zero too. The rest of the album doesn't quite measure up to _Quartus Frénésis_ sounding very much like Robert Fripp's band SUNDAY ALL OVER THE WORLD out of 1991(but only instrumentally). 5 star rating for _Quartus Frénésis_, 3 stars for _Cataracte_ where there's an obvious edit that bugs me to no end and 4 stars for the final track _Le Sanctuaire D'Euterpe_. Look for it on Ebay or hopefully a re-issue is in order.

Gooner | 4/5 |
