5 stars Like its own name says, a symphonie! Symphonie on keys and more keys, mellotroms, moogs and an e-piano. A 40 minutes piece that goes from rock'n'roll to expermental and concrete music! Its coloured and space climate is a permanent mark together with the synthesized timbres on keys and chords. Even the sax seems like an electronic instrument by the way it is imposed.

We have an special guest that is one of my favorite guitarrists, Steve Hillage. Whose is playing the guitar on 1st movement (pure psychdelia!).

The music found on this album is made of some calm moments and various climax - i'll tell witch are my favorites: The beginning and the end of 1st movement and some of the jazzy-rock themes on 2nd movement. I admire these themes because they are not complex, a simple way of doing progressive rock, but they build a 40 minutes piece that also goes to concrete music and is completely psychdelic, something difficult to find!

That's a must, for sure! Masterpiece!
