2 stars This was supposedly the one to get by Ange, but I could not get past the melodrama of the lyrics and the vocals, not to mention how truly irritating this sounds. This is music that screams for attention with all the musicality of a jilted toddler, albeit a very literary one.

I cannot give only one star simply because of its originality and genuine emotion, but I cannot give it more than two, because of aforementioned issues which permeate almost every moment. The quality of the poetic phrasings in Si j'étais le Messie and the title track allow me to recommend the disc to those who want to see how French prog became more overwrought than that which emanated from their neighbours. But from my perspective this was not a happy circumstance.
