3 stars Sometimes you come across an album that you like, that you want to write a review about ... but that you avoid doing so because you believe you might damn it due to faint praise.

Metablisme's Tempus Fugit is such an album. As others have noted, it's quite pleasant. And it doesn't diminish in appeal for me to note the similarities with early 70s Ange. Though the organ plays a much more prominent part of Metabolisme's sound.

So why the possibility of faint praise ? Well, I walk away after listening to it without really having the songs stick in my head. Yet, when I play it, I don't reach for the remote to skip a song.

So is this an album for you to pick up ? Well, absent any mp3 samples that I can find on the web, I point to the influences that I noted in this album's songs - Ange, early Genesis and Moody Blues; along with the prominent place that the organ plays that to my ears make it attractive to those who seek that first wave prog scene sound of the early 70s.

So , not a necessity, but a nicety if you will ...
