5 stars Dark, beautiful and stunning. That's all I can say about this LP by the French avant-prog band Art Zoyd.

This album consists of two great epic tracks (both are really epic) and a bunch of shorter things. The highlights here are 'A Drum, A Drum', one of those long epics, and 'Baboon's Blood', a shorter track. 'A Drum, A Drum' is an everchanging, very theatric and extraordinary odd piece of art. Some flavor of Ancient Greek comedy comes in here, ain't it? 'Baboon's Blood' is an eerie goth-like song with ominous beat and even creepier vocals.

In general, atmosphere here is perfectly gloomy and sometimes plainly grim. 'Berlin' is one of those rare albums that would leave you totally astonished and begging for more. Unfortunately, Art Zoyd remains a very less-known band, but if some day you'll have a chance to listen to this masterwork, don't skip it!
