1 stars I don't know the first part of this sci-fi trlogy by french band LONGSHOT I've never heard before and actually I'm not very curious about it. Okay let me try to describe what is presented here. I would say a kind of Art Rock or NeoProg with some symphonic elements and a touch of Prog Metal. Closest comparison maybe bands like IT BITES or SAGA. Apart of the fact that I don't favor those bands, I'll explain what else are the reasons why this record fails to hit my attraction. First thing are the really awful vocals, but this would be tolerable if the music would be good at least. But instead the compositions are just longish lacking any diversity and complexity at all. Just terribly boring without any interesting moments and any rhythm changes. Really just a type of symphonic hard rock, nothing else. I'd love to be able to tell at least one hightlight or a better track, but I can't find any. I've got to say this is one of the worst symphonic Prog albums and probably the worst by a french band (apart of some 80's ANGE ones) I've listened so far!

I'd like to recommend this album only to fans of the mentioned bands or late GENESIS. Very poor for being classified as Symphonic Prog!
