4 stars Wow !! This album is a very nice surprise, having had no expectations when listening to it for the first time. But within the first minutes, I am taken to a place I really likes.

I am used to listening to symph prog albums which comes across as neo-prog albums. In this case, the opposite is happening. This album is a largely fully blooded symph prog album with references to the likes of Ange, Anekdoten, Yes and Genesis. The music here is really epic and grandious. It is also filled with a wide aray of colours. Just like the first time I tasted Chimay Bleu. Which I am not doing now, btw.

The first song are sung in English and has a lot of Genesis and Marillion connotations. A very good song, but the album takes a nice turn to France and French symphonic prog on the rest of the album. The French vocals reminds us all that Belgium, the homeland of Madelgaire, is a country with two languages. Madelgaire's vocalist Pascal Rocteur does an impressive job here. The use of vintage keys like moog and hammond is really pleasing too. This in addition to the usual guitars, keyboards, drums and bass setup.

This is a great album from Belgium which should please all fans of French symphonic prog. Not to mention those also into neo prog. Let's hope Madelgaire will return again with a new album because I really like what they are doing on this album.
