3 stars 3.5 stars really!!! Just a single album from these guys (built around the Nevez brothers) and also a much too short album at that. 29 mins is simply too short on a CD for a full price - Mellow Records CDs are never cheap (found my copy in a second hand shop). The music developped here is typical symphonic French prog from the mid-70's not far away from Atoll , Carpe Diem.

There are some very fine moments and the guitarist's lush sound is sometimes reminiscent of Hackett and the Kb are also superb leaning on a cross Genesis's Banks and Floyd's Wright. Reaching a musical orgasm is possible if you are symphonic prog-inclined but one must suffer from premature ejaculation because of the brevity of the album.

Although these guys appear to be from Britany (most western french region) , do not expect anything celtic.
