5 stars ANGE play a style of progressive rock called "French theatrical". They seem to have been influenced by Peter GABRIEL-era GENESIS and KING CRIMSON. However, their sound is more French than British. If you can imagine walking by a university theater during rehearsals, somewhere in Paris, then you pretty much have an idea of their sound. Think theatrical music that comes off a bit rough, yet is absolutely charming. The French vocals are emotional, dynamic, and similar in style to Peter GABRIEL. They are easy to enjoy and, if you understand some French, the lyrics are also humorous. Their guitarist is impressive in a subtle sort of way. His style, which isn't technical at all, lies somewhere between Robert FRIPP and blues-rock. Anyway, this is one of the top albums from the French prog scene.
