4 stars Another gemstone from the archives of ProgArchives.

This French band released three studio albums under the Abus Dangereux name and further three albums under the Abus name. This is their debut album and to my knowledge, an album that differs a lot from their other albums. If that's the case, that's a shame.

Le Quatrieme Mouvement is a heady mix of National Health, Magma and fusion. Some here has labelled this a zeuhl album. I would almost label this as a Canterbury scene album, although the zeuhl influences is also very strong. Fusion/Jazz..... not as much as zeuhl and Canterbury scene, though. In short, this album hits jackpot style wise, in my view.

The female vocals here are excellent. The musicianship is superb. The songs are also great. In particular the title track with the hypnotic zeuhl like female vocals. But the rest of the album is also great. A killer track or even a killer melody line is missing though. But fans of fusion, zeuhl and canterbury has found one common album to gather around. This album, that is.

4 stars and a very happy reviewer
