4 stars From all those bands which are influenced by King Crimson,is this Shylock possible one of the very best.Especially in their first album 'Gialorgues' many passages are comparable to 'Red'.Guitarist Frédéric L'Epee plays with the same enthousiasm as his famous exemple Robert Fripp and the result is very convinced.A very dark and dismal powerfull guitarwork is present during the whole length of the album.On the suitable moments the mellotrons are doing what is necessary to make each track on this album great.There isn't almost any weak moment and the fans from King Crimson will be not dissapointed.This isn't one of those many bad Crimson imitating groups.This album contains material which is near as good as the masters self.
