Soundtrack from the cosmic poetic René Laloux 1973 cartoon, "La planète sauvage" (The fantastic planet), is Alain gorager's most progressive and ambitious work. Made of 25 short pieces with several recurrent melodic themes, the music perfectly illustrates the movie strangeness. The instrumentation is typically 70's and progressive with the use of beautiful psychedelic guitar soli (track 22 "générique", main theme), mellotron, harpsichord, a funky feel thanks to a lot of wah-wah guitar and a hint of jazz with some saxophone and flute on the beautiful "Strip Tease". Female chorus contribute to that supernatural feeling. A bewitching album.
