5 stars Great of the greats album. I don't really understand why this album voted to be an inferior alternative to their previous Les Cinq Saisons. I personally think this album is way better sounding Harmonium and personally think that this album is the finest production of Harmonium.

With whole new level of complexity, depth, musical layer and superb dynamic, the double-disc L'Heptade sounds gorgeous. They moved toward more classical approach of music. The percussion, drums and electric guitar make the album even more complete. Though it need more than few spin to appreciate the whole picture; after that breaking point, you will never ever put it down again. Highlights are Comme un Fou, Sur Une Corde Raide / L'Exil and Les Premières Lumières / Lumières De Vie. So elegant and beautiful.

If there is a truly perfect symphonic prog album, L'Heptade should be it, or 99.99% of it. I love this album so much and would wholeheartedly recommend for any prog fan out there. Easily earned 5 stars.
