5 stars Les Porches is certainly the best album of the Quebec scene, better than Harmonium albums and Sloche albums; a real masterpiece of untypical musical instruments, perfect instrumentation and a lot of folk, jazz and classical influences.

Both long pieces contain real ecstasy moments (emphasis for clarinet, sax and percursion and the vocals and guitar solo on désouverture) and the short pieces have wonderful melodies.

Another characteristics are the non-clear experimental and concret music moments (few moments unfortunately) and the power but not agressive bass. Xylophones also join the music with eminence some times.

My favorite song on this album is Les Porches De Notre Dame and its Désouverture and Suite I; Chromo part two also is incredible.

I hope progressive guys enjoy this work and my last spell of this album is simple: a non-rock but progressive masterpiece
