3 stars 3,5 stars for sure

L'Orient d'' is one shot prog wonder from Canada, more specific from their most famous zone Quebec where the prog movement in the '70s was at home. One album saw the light from this band in 1978 selftitled. The bands name is taken from the head of the band Gaetan Laurendeau who aswell is responsable for composing all pieces from here. Well, despite the good art work, the music is also on same coordonates, symphonic prog very much in same vein with another band from that period from Canada - Morse Code, but aswell hints from french school is present, Atoll comes in mind or Mona Lisa here and there, aswell Nektar from british prog school might apeal to some listners. The opening track Amoureusement v'tre is quite great, lenghty clocking around 9 min, has plenty of beautiful romatic complicated symphonic prog as should sound this type of music. The voice is warm and pleasent, the keyboards are more then delightfull all the way, so no complainings from me about this late '70s release. To me a winner, 3.5 stars for sure. A nice forgotten little album here.
