3 stars Zeuhl ?

Potemkine, named after a famous movie, a battleship & one of the opening salvos of the October Revolution in 1917, has delivered a bit of a strange album with their debut album. It is far more Canterbury than zeuhl. Even the only true zeuhl song here, Zed, is pretty close to what the likes of Gilgamesh did on their albums. In short, this is jazz with something else added on. The added on thing is a bit rock, avant garde rock, classical music and some zeuhl. Fusion, in other words. Or perhaps not fusion. Potemkine has come up with a type of music I have not heard before.

The music is good throughout. The highlights is both Cedille and Laure with it's novel approach to fusion. The rest of the album is good too. I have given this album plenty of time, but it still does not grab me and entrap me. So I cannot call it a great album. But it is still worth checking out if you are into the Canterbury scene or zeuhl.
