3 stars 3,5 stars!!! I found this second albun from the band OCTOBRE "Nouvelles Terres" (1974), a little different from his first work "Octobre" (1973), and that more called me the attention was a certain approach with jazzier themes and the use of other musicians' as guests (although there are not credits) in an attempt of "enriching" the melodic textures, as example of this, I can mention the orchestral attendance in the final passage of the track 4 "Ma Chanson", the brass section arrangement in the track 5 "Violence." However that "enrichment" (in my opinion) doesn't do a superior work in relationship to their first disk, I consider both in a same level.. The best moments of the disk are the track 1 "Nouvelles Terres",a track 3 " Quand La Nuit If Réveille" with interesting counterpoints among acoustic & eletric guitar and keyboards,and the track 6 "La Passe du Grande Flambeau" (the best moment of the disk) that reminded me in some moments GENTLE GIANT. My rate is 3,5 stars. Standing out (as in their previous work) that this also deserves a place in my collection!!!!
