4 stars Shylock were a french band that played all-instrumental prog pieces in a very king crimsonesque way but still this album is not a clone of crimson and should be taken for a spin on your stereo. the re-release version (which i have) is built from the 3 original album track and 5 bonus tracks which are not essencial and therefore i will ignore in this review. shylock were a three piece band playing organ ,guitar,drums while the bass on the album was played by the guitarist frederick l'epee ,who should be mentioned as a great guitarist a la Robert Fripp from crimson. I would like to mention the drummer as well for the crazy changes and impossible structures i really love that. out of the three album tracks i would best recomend le quatrieme (it really isnt the forth track but the first- they named the pieces in the order they were written ) it just summorizes for me the whole feel of the album. I admit i was looking for the loccanda de la fate album when i bought this instead but i didnt regret it so if you give it a chance you probably wont regret it either so try it
