Christian Beya was even asked to join ANGE around the time this album was in the pipeline, but declined what must have seemed an almost irresistible invitation to fame and fortune out of loyalty to his own struggling band mates. I will however, agree that the jazz rock influences are virtually absent and that highly melodic symphonic prog is set at center stage – which, in this instance is a good thing. Prices may vary for AK and HI. A beautiful melody and the song of “Le Cerf Volant” are impressive. Gae Lowe Le Duel 7:

Vocal melodies to end it. The keyboards are also as you expect from prog at this time: Do you really want to taste the best of French Progressive rock?
Luckily the rest of the album is much better, concluding in the ever wonderful “Tunnel”. Yazz Ahmed guests tertuo we feature “The Music of” tribute to French musical legends.
I don’t mean to suggest that, like so many other copycat bands, they sound just like YES: I will however, agree that the jazz rock influences are virtually absent and that highly melodic symphonic prog is set at center stage – which, in this instance is a good thing. The opening song, “Paris, C’est Fini” starts off great, but it’s my least favorite song here, because they sing about various big cities around the world London, Bangkok, Tokyo, San Francisco, New York, etc.
You must be a forum member to post a review, please register here if you are not. But all the subtle shades of fusion that so effectively colored the previous album have been jettisoned here in favor of a stronger, more confident symphonic rock sound that clearly owes a stylistic debt to the English Prog pioneers without in any way sounding like a plagiarism.
Have one to sell? This one is almost fully symphonic and I far much prefer “Atoll” in these shoes.
Tszirmay told me this was fairly dark and he knew I would like it. Christian Beya was even asked to join ANGE around the time this album was in the pipeline, but declined what must have seemed an almost irresistible invitation to tdrtio and fortune out of loyalty to his own struggling band mates. There were better individual songs on the previous two albums, but neither album was as good on the whole as this one.
This is quite catchy. The existence of Didier Lockwood that participated in guest’s standpoint in their tours had succeeded as a part of the important factor, too.

Disappointed by the split-up of U. Often compared to Yes, which I can’t figure out why, because at least on this album, they don’t sound much like Yes I hadn’t heard their previous two albums, so I can’t comment there.
Adding to Cart…
Atoll completely established the existence by the success of this album that received the support of Press and the critic. Making and the dash feeling of the sound of the keyboard create one space.
Simple structure but fully symphonic. The balance of the mystique and the melody is good. Write a customer review. Wonderful theatric-syle Terrio prog with Moog synths, soaring guitar solos, strange sound effects, and a good degree of musical vituosity.
Musically speaking, this sequel shows how good the band adapted the complexity of its writing to the sound of the Eighties. Development that is reminiscent of the demiquaver and space in close relation to symphonic means their establishment.
ATOLL Tertio reviews
Gutsy hard rock from this Sydney group, with proggy arrangements that reference Middle Eastern melodies. Part of power that can be listened with 2nd Album of involving. Mini Moog, string synth in this case, the Eminentand clavinet, with the rest of the instrumentation consisting of the usual guitar, bass, drums. The only song that doesn’t really work is “Gae Lowe the Duel “, not coincidentally also the shortest track on the album. Nonetheless, the final result is not bad at all, but more difficult to approach.
