4 stars VOS VOISINS released their lone album back in 1971. The band was from Quebec and the music can be quite heavy although we get some variety here. The vocals are in French and can be theatrical bringing to mind Emmanuel Booz and other theatrical bands from France. I can't get over how fertile the music scene was in Quebec when compared to the rest of Canada back in the seventies.

"Voisins (Mon Chum)" has a catchy rhythm with spoken vocals then the guitar starts to solo before the vocals return. Some essential cow bell too then another guitar solo. A top three track for me. "Sous La Lune" features piano and fragile vocals early but it does get fuller around 2 minutes. This is my least favourite tune on here but it's okay. "L'instrumental" kicks in right away, organ too. A bombastic instrumental and the guitar comes to the fore 1 1/2 minutes in. A change 2 minutes in as it settles some as the guitar leads with drums. Nice.This is a top three tune. "Tania" opens with piano only as soft vocal melodies join in. The vocals get louder then it settles again. It does kick in heavily after 3 minutes.

"Le Monstre De La Main" is heavy with organ to start then it calms down with spoken but theatrical vocals. A heavy rhythm after 2 1/2 minutes as it builds. All hell then breaks loose. Vocals are back to end it. My final top three track. "Ya Just De T'ca" is a catchy vocal track. An instrumental calm after 2 minutes then the vocals return. Great sounding track. "Le 3/4 De L'archeveque" opens with piano. Vocal melodies come in before 2 minutes. It turns fuller. Cool song.

This is an excellent release that i'm sure will satisfy most Prog fans out there.
