5 stars Had the King asked the best mistrels of his kingdom to create a musical work of art that would be worthy of his court and his glory, this might have been the end result. 'Si on avait besoin d'une cinquieme saison' is, indeed, majestic.

To those who still doubt the high ratings given to this jewel, it is never too late to challenge your preconceptions. The odds are that 'Si on avait besoin d'une cinquieme saison' will take hold of you after one, perhaps two listens. It will bring you joy and tears, and awe. All five tracks are excellent, whereas the last one, the entirely instrumental 'Histoires Sans Paroles' (Stories without words) is heavenly.

There is no need to discuss the creativeness, the complexity, the musicians' proficiency or the flawless compositions when such unique beauty makes its case in and of itself. Of course, if your cake looks more like extreme metal, this might not be an album for you; 'Si on avait besoin d'une cinquieme saison' is the high point of melodic folk prog, and aims for the heart first.

As a person who, more often than not, finds himself at odds with the general sentiment, herein my independent judgment gets me to concur. This is a masterpiece.
