3 stars OK this is not my favourite sub-genre within such French Progressive/Space Psychedelic rock scene of the seventies,but probably it deserves a superior score, cause the present re-issue from Musea Label is not bad!!"Benvenue..." is their fourth album, before that kind of "testament" entitled "Gorlitz", introducing some very interesting music features inside their avant-garde stuff!!Actually every new album is able to make their style more captivating, in comparison to their early works, even though the present work always maintains such an experimental and interesting mood, like in the past.The concept is based upon the novel by Peter Handke:of course Claude Lesko- the actor from the theatre-is the main narrator of the present music act (otherwise he has been member of such Compagnie du Théatre de la Satire in France for some years,being a remarkable artist...) and he gives the whole "opera" an important contribution.Nevertheless,in respect of such theatrical act, Pulsar can not modify the original text and the plotter of the story in the same time:so- as for this reason only- the output is controversial!! In fact, except on some irritating moments of "Punk" music, the stuff of Pink Floyd and some works by Vangelis as well probably represent their main "font" of inspiration, but I don't know why they have not chosen a precise direction in the last phase of their long career!!Moreover their music is a bit "compressed" inside such a "narrow" theatrical scheme, where Pulsar can not invent anything diverse in their music passages.Never mind, the work is worth checking out at least, especially if you like the present style of "Space rock"!!
