4 stars One year passes since their most known album and Ange delivers another worthy release from their vast career. It is time for Emile Jacotey issued in 1975 to please my ears, and what a ride it is for my thirsthy for prog ears. To me this is equal in greatness with previous album, I like it a lot and is my second best after delire. Another fine gatefold cover with an old man who seams to apper breafly with some spoken words here and there on the album. The music has same ingredients and characteristic as previous Ange albums, theatrical dark music with melodramatic vocal arrangements so well offered by the band on each album. For me the best Ange pieces are on this album, like Le nain de stanislas is simply a killer track, everything Ange had best in that period is in this pieces, Jour apre jour is another beautiful tune, Ode a Emile. the more edgy Ego et deus dominates the sound and atmosphere of the album. So, another one of their best releases for sure, to many times being in the shadow of Delire without reason, because thes album is as good as anything they release before. Symphonic prog with a harder edge that will please most of the fans of the genre, even tose non french speakers. 4 stars
