4 stars In the borders of mere good and becoming essential!

This 1976 Teddy Lasry, "E = MC˛ " is quiet hard to place and rate. Track 2 is its weakest point (it is kind of overly sweet), but the rest of the 7 song album are at least daring and proposing.

Well here I go! For starters even though it is post "Rubycon", it holds no resemblance neither to TD nor Schulze, which oddly is a rarity in this electronic category. People close to Magma and its mastermind, will feel Teddy Lasry's touch deeply and recognizable. He in fact has collaborated with Christian Vander, the mastermind mentioned above.

Perfectly installed in the progressive electronic movement, Lasry's 3th solo work, gets rid off the crutches he showed in his previous efforts. His attention to music rather than the humor or irreverence of his "artist" attitude, makes this work's songwriting fairly creative and more than once truly genial. Of course it is not humorless but the best musical figures come from very distant lands than there.

Shamelessly blending various musical styles, from african percussions to a very French version of electronic Jazz, going through highly progressive electronic synths and guitar counterpointings. He in fact can not hide his Steve Reich's micro-minimalism influences, nevertheless his personal abstract idiom, marks the line between mere ripping off and having been influenced by one of the top figures of the 21st. century's music.

****4 "the kind of prog/electronic album, that any progger can enjoy" PA stars.
