2 stars Not the masterpiece it is said to be. Way overhyped. By this point, the spacey has been replaced with the standard "prog synth"(late '70s STYX?), and they've lost their "french sound". Obviously geared to a larger market - even the heavily accented english vocals sound like they were phoned in as an afterthought. By this point, they could be compared to a "french Pink Floyd", because it sounds like a former Canadian Prime Minister vocalizing the Ricola commercial in the Gasp├?┬ęsie region through a vocoder. More like "Wish You Weren't Here"...the poor man's Floyd from Shawinigan. I'm so worked up of how overrated "Halloween" is, it's got me writing gibberish. OK, Not my cup of tea...but someone here might like it if you can get past the vocals. Pulsar should stick to their native tongue. This is 2 stars because the music is not that bad. This would normally garner a 3 star rating, but it's the vocals I find so irritating. Stick to the first 2 albums "Pollen" and "The Strands Of The Future" if you want to hear the legend of Pulsar. The aforementioned deserve all the praise the world over.
