3 stars Obscure Belgium band's debut album. Very melodic, energetic mix of r'n'b, slightly psychedelic blues-rock and symphonic prog with some jazzy arrangements. This jazzy feeling comes mostly from trumpeter they have in team.

The music is not boring, easy accessible, and contains such elements, as Latin and Eastern folk and Canterbury influence in some moments. From other hand, you will easy hear some pop elements there as well. Deep classic roots and especially drumming remind early zeuhl bands, but differently from them album's atmosphere there is mostly bright, light and very optimistic.

I can hardly name this music jazz-rock, even if there are some brass arrangements. Eclectic prog rock with symphonic, folk, zeuhl and jazz-rock as main components. Not a bad album, but a bit unfocused, cheesy and straight-forward for my taste. Vocals are far from the best as well.
