4 stars What is it with avant-prog bands from France in the 1980s and names inspired by H.P. Lovecraft? Not only do you have Shub-Niggurath in a more zeuhlish sphere, but you also have Yog Sothoth, whose style feels more reminiscent of the sort of avant-prog/RIO material that sprang up around Henry Cow and its successor bands, with touches of chamber prog. There's jazzy moments reminiscent of both the fusion roots of Magma and the Canterbury roots of Henry Cow, but don't be suckered in - this is stranger territory than that. Cathy Camilleri's guest vocals are a particularly charming addition to the group's sound.
