Bardzo dobra plyta klasyki francuskiego prog-rocka - 1976 nagrania - rock progresywny z dodatkiem psychodelii i jazz-rockowych elementów, muzyka dla wytrawnych sluchaczy, (King Crimson, Anglagard).
Very little is known about this four-piece French set who released one album at the tail end of prog's 'golden age', and then disappeared from the map. They were: Daniel Locci on drums, Jack Mlynski on guitars and vocals, Stanislas Belloc on bass and vocals, and Alain Coupel on keyboards and vocals. Their 1977 LP entitled "Odyssée" has apparently never been released on CD and is likely to be quite rare.
Some have described the album as the French "Larks' Tongues in Aspic", no doubt thanks to guitarist Mlynski's Frippian style which (precariously) straddles the line between homage and plagiarism. Alain Coupel's synth play, however, is noticeably un-CRIMSON like and the band does show some originality and an obvious desire for experimentation; yet the overall feel of the album is still 100% KC, especially the 16-minute epic that opens the B side of the LP. Not exactly "the" classic some vinyl collectors would have you believe, but certainly better than your average obscure symphonic progger from the vaults. A very enjoyable ride only the most resentful CRIMSON fans would shun.
KING CRIMSON as well as fans of SHYLOCK and PULSAR will want to check the album out if (a big "if") they can get their hands on it.
