4 stars Forth album from their catalogue released in 1978 named Libre service - self service is almost same in manner of composing with previous one, aswell shorter pieces but full of inventive passages. I guess I like this one more then previous album, maybe more then Les Porches, I don't know really why I'm more attached by the music offered here by the band. Overall polished sound, some untraditional instruments here like xylophone, marimba combined with the rest gives a very solid album to my ears. Flute again is important as guitar and keyboards, again an instrumental album. Maybe in places is little more accesible then previous album and maybe lighter in aproach but never the less a great album by Manaige that keeps the flag high in those dark years of prog late '70s. Another winner and I guess the last true great album by the band. 4 stars again. Maybe my fav Maneige album.
