3 stars My first intro to these Canadian legends.

It is my understanding that this is the first foray into symphonic prog from this band and their third album overall. They started out as a space rock band and their past is pretty obvious on this album too. The music on this album though is a mix of space rock, The Nice, ELP, Genesis...... well, symphonic prog. Add some PFM & other vintage RPI influences too and you get this album.

The music is tangents based with some guitars included too. The vocals are pretty good and they are thankfully sung in French. It is always nice with some variations from the usual fare of English vocals.

The quality throughout this album is good throughout. There is no real outstanding pieces of music here though. But I suspect this album is a late bloomer which will only reveal itself after ten listening sessions and some years. Hence, it has been put in my colletion of late bloomer and this review may be altered in five years time. But as it is now, I cannot really say this is a great album. It has a lot of good melody lines and clever hooks though. But not throughout the album. It is a very good album though and somewhere between 3 and 4 stars.

3.5 stars
