5 stars The third work released in 1974 "Au-dela du delire". Feature sublime vocal of Christian Decamps, and dark, symphonic rock. It is a work to which initial ANGE a style is established. The ensemble with a profound, doubtful keyboard and guitar is dark, and wonderful. Especially, there is overwhelming power. Poor tone quality might be intentional. Moreover, I felt deep artistry that seemed to be France in classical play of wind and stringed instruments, a cembalo, and an acoustic guitar. Work that equals JETHRO TULL in entertainment. The melody is more wonderful. The melody of "Les longues nuits d'isaac" and "Ballade pour une orgie" is indeed unforgettable. It is advanced, symphonic rock that equals initial GENESIS and KING CRIMSON. It is a fairy tale rather than the concept album. It is a picture book for adults written in French. It is a masterpiece.

Highly recommended.
