4 stars I've known this one with a different and much better cover but I think it was an italian edition. A classic Magma ,where Vander confirms that the previous albums were no accident. On some editions of this album comes some quite deep and somber poetry first written in french and tranlatted to their invented Kobaian language. One of my best buddies actually studied it and wrote them a letter in Kobaian and got an answer again in Kobaian, so this is no joke.

As for the music on here it is just as great as Mekanik or Kohntarkosz having this unique blend of influences of Stravinsky, John Coltrane for the music and Carl Orff for the vocals that come mainly as choirs. Very impressive..... MAGMA alone invented a style of music that will be called Zheul music.
