Prog Reviewer
4 stars L'Heptade takes the styles used on Harmonium's previous two albums and adds a bit more of aggressive edge to it, using percussion and more of an electric feel throughout. This album is quite long at over 80 minutes, but it never gets boring. The cinematic feel of their last album is definitely here, but as stated before, it seems a bit more aggressive. I get a darker feel from this album as well, but there are more uppity sounding songs in this mix. The compositions change moods and passages with ease, although there are times when the changes seem kind of random or unnecessary. Among all of the symphonic progressive rock albums I've heard in my life, Harmonium writes the best. The songs are fun, beautiful, and absolutely no cheesiness is present. Highly recommended along with the band's previous two albums.
