3 stars Before beginning my review, it would like to emphasize that I am not an admirer of the R.I.O style, with some rare exceptions among which I can detach the Swedish band Samla Mammas Manna, however, the the French band XAAL, gets me to please in many aspects, and the main of them is the beautiful arrangements form. I can cite as an example in the second albun entitled "Second Ere" which I considere superior to first "En Chemin" the track 2 Tranquille" that after a beginning with drums that remind World-Music, it "disembogues" in a beautiful passage where is a "dialogue" between a fingered guitar and the fretless bass to drive the music to a theme that mixes KING CRINSOM with JEFF BECK, still detach the track 5 " it Forces" in approximate molds of the Jazz Rock, very similar RETURN TO FOREVER, PASSPORT and MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA (this last citation due to the "very crazy" guitar solo in the Jonh Mclaughlin's style. My rate is 3 stars!!! Leaving clear that same not finding the disk essential he deserves figures in my collection!!!
