2 stars The prog aspects of this "Amazing Blondel" were always alien to me. If there were lots of pure folkish moments during their prior releases, the progressive angle was quite difficult to find. As far as I am concerned, there were none.

This seventh album, awkwardly called "Inspiration" is not of a better style, I'm afraid. To find one great track is a difficult task. I would say (as usual) that vocal harmonies are well crafted (but this is their trade mark) and that this album shares a lot of influences from the Fab Four. Needless to say: it remains quite far from the brilliance of the masters. The best experience is to listen to the genuine works and not to such a pale copy.

Decent orchestrations, sweet melodies are the best that you can expect from this "Inspiration". This album is not any worse than its predecessors, or any better. Just about the same average music which doesn't seem to enthusiast a lot of progheads. Accordingly.

Actually there is nothing folk or prog here. It is just a combo of soft rock songs with little charm; of which the dreadful "Be So Happy" is the weakest of all.

This is a quite uninspired album; the closing instrumental and orchestra oriented is the best example of what is available. If I were you, I would just press the next button. Two stars is the usual rating for "Amazing Blondel". This album won't peak any higher in my standards.
