4 stars A fine piece of early seventies prog. Plenty of styles fused into an original and imaginative mix. The music is mainly keyboard driven, but the vocal and brass arrangements brought to mind Colosseum's early albums. This probably does deserve the term 'undiscovered gem' - it's hard to understand why Marsupilami didn't achieve a higher profile when the album was released...perhaps like stable- mates Stray, they suffered from Transatlantic's uncertainty as to how to promote bands whose music fell outside the norm for the label? Well worth investigating for anyone who enjoys the early years of prog!
