Review by oliverstoned
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars This 1979 and last studio album is a big disappointment after the "Platock" masterpiece.

Markusfeld is now turning to a more gentle neo symphonic vein leaded by piano, which may remind of Cyrille Verdeaux solo works at times. Only the second piece "L'âme flottante" is quite accomplished and its sophistication and profusion of effects may evoke the ethereal and delicate Steve Tibbetts works, "YR" period. The long piece is unfortunatly not convincing and suffers from a cruel lack of inspiration and its repetitive characteristic.

There's still some excellent Markusfeld guitar throughout the album -as usual- but the composition's poorness and overall lack of intensity makes this album a minor record.
