5 stars Yes, 5!

PATRICK VIAN's, "Bruits Et Temps Analogues" is using "taggins", a 1976, electronic music work, that goes from electronics to prpg's cross-over and other un-proggy destinations. To try to nail this whole work, I will mention "progressive electronic aesthetics" + "world/Jazz-fusion without the "exotic Imperial approach" + "serious music composition", yet un-pretentious, just "genial" and from there to "contemporary classical" music constructions brushes with prog's "symphonic" and RiO's proposals and the inevitable "Ambient" taggin.

It will turn un-wise for a unique release not to mention the impeccable musicians alongside Vian's moogs and piano. Drums are poignantly and cheerfully played by Mino Cinelu well aquainted in fact with a wide spectrum of Prog bands (Gong, Weather Report). Percussions runs on the hands of Georges Granier who also adds Fender Rhodes, marimba, noise and "scissors" to his collaboration. The very welcomed flavor of Bernard Lavialle (Ame Son) , on the electric guitar makes this album "rock" where needed and soft if it happens.

What else can I say............ It is completely absurd to miss this ***** 5 PA stars work, now that you know about its existence. "And miss the "bliss". Creative, Progressive/Electronic/Non-blues/Rock/Jazz constructed, crossing over to Electronic/World/Ambiental/Contemporary computer Music"........ in the perfect world of "taggings" it will sound like that....and still, I will miss something. A lost "Prog Jewel".
