4 stars Acanthe is one of many lost forgotten prog bands from mid to late '70s who for sure needed a far more recognition and implicit a proper album recorded, sadly this never happend, they only played live in their short existence between 1973-1977 and no album was released. The head of the band Frederic Loez together with famous Musea records label trace the old rewcoding and make this archival album released in 2009 named Someone somewhere. We, to tell the truth this is quite great album, full of intresting music and catchy arrangements. The sound and presentation is as always top notch, Musea always knew to make solid, intresting packages. All pieces are excellent, truly shining moments here, the musicinaship is great, remind me in places of Shylock, Skryvania or Pentacle among others. Pieces like opener title track or Suspension are for sure winners from all sides, like the rest of the tunes. A nice find from the prog vaults, who at least this time with the issue on CD to get more exposure. A recommended band for sure, areal gem for me. 4 stars easy.
