4 stars 4.5 stars . This third album is somewhat different than its predecessor in that there is much shorter tunes in them , most of them definitely more jazzy, some slightly funky. One must note that for the first albums Langlois and Bergeron were the writers and from this moment on this will be for Lapierre and Schetagne.On the strenght of this one and its successor, people will classify them under the fusion label , and strictly on those two, I can only agree . These two albums were the only one ever released on CD.

Q : Look closely at the fold-out cover and think of which great infold of a great album this was inspired upon . The colours might help you for outside fold of that same cover. As for the music , this has still the distinctive Maneige twists and curves , sounding so "boppy" and happy , still mixing with such ease all acoustic and electric instruments. So moments are simply orgasmic to your ears. The reason why I don't rate this one as highly as the preceding ones is that those short pieces provide less unity as a whole album.

A : Think of the most positive of all groups to the point that they named themselves upon this positivism and think of their masterpiece with the green cover and open up the gatefold sleeve. Don't believe me? Go back and check it up!
