4 stars Volume V - Le Bolero du Veau des Dames is the band's best and strongest album. It's more rocking than the others, and has more energy and variation as well. This would be the recommended starting point, and the most likely to be enjoyed by fellow progheads. This, as with the band's last album, feature full drum set. The mix and production are also the biggest and fully round of the albums.

The leadoff track "Palace" and "Doctor Pleu" are both reminiscent of ELP and Fireballet's first album.

"Styx" has some nice dreamy synth lines and non-vocal singing. "Melba" sounds quite a bit like Gryphon. The title track "Le Bolero du Veau des Dames" starts off with a very regal / royal melody - highly European - and builds up as it goes along, into a prog rock march along the lines of something by Ange or maybe even early Genesis.

Definitely recommended.
