2 stars In response to the previous reviewer's remark, "the main riff and chorus of the title track sound as if they were lifted verbatim from the 1972 America tune "Sandman" - that's because it IS a cover of Sandman with French lyrics, it's credited to America and is, in no way, 'lifted'. That being said, this is a below-average folkish album that doesn't stand the test of time. Valéry Btesh's voice cannot seem to find its proper pitch, switching octaves in the middle of songs, the musicianship never rises above competent, the arrangements are pedestrian and uninspired, and the production bland. They were clearly influenced by both the 70s West Coast sound and English folk groups like Fotheringay or Fairport, but never come close to the quality of those bands. Nothing to see here.
