3 stars The cover from this third album by French progrock band Versailles is almost worth to make a review about it..... Ok, now you have taken an (extensive?) look at that artistic blend of sex and humour, let's conclude that Freud is right and go back to the music. The first time I listened to Versailles I was blown away by their very distinctive sound: a captivating mix of rock, symphonic and psychedelia featuring great, often fiery electric guitar work, pleasant flute play, bombastic vintage keyboards, dramatic, a bit theatrical French vocals and a dynamic rhythm-section. The shifting moods are frequent and the Mellotron is omnipresent, what a joy! The short song Jadis is a maverick delivering Spanish inspired acoustic guitar. Versailles doesn't make very accessible progrock but to me they sound as another unique and captivating French progrock band, SUPERBE!
