3 stars In the fourth album, Jean Marc Corvisier aka Jaz starts using more minor chords, and it results in an album on which the listener can concentrate some attention. While the previous three albums were more light, here there's more prog. The principal influencers can be find during the listen, but some sounds are really interesting,

As in the previous albums, I hear echoes of CAMEL and Jean Michel JARRE, but the biggest surprise in this short album (30 minutes long, more or less) is in the closing track, wich starts withthe same bass line of careful With That Aze Eugene. The Pink Floyd mood comes and go until it disappears completely.

There are no track titles. Tracks are just numbered from 1 to 6, and knowing about the love for VANGELIS that Mr Corvisier declares, having 6 "movements" is the same kind of approach that was used by the Greek keyboardist in more than one album of the 90s.

So, it's a step forward respect to the first three releases. Surely not a masterpiece, but a decent album, just a bit too short.
