3 stars Elixir is a typical and obscure band from the French Progressive rock scene, born a decade after the Golden Age of prog, the '70's. Being now in the Eighties does not prevent from pursuing the legacy of Ange or Atoll, without forgetting to include in its music echoes from IQ, Steve Hackett or Genesis. Published on the Musea label in the year 1989 on vinyl only, there was no re issue on CD yet. The album named Indifférence was the second release of the band. The album has again energic rhythms, typical that french atmosphere overall. To me is a good album, maybe less intristing then the predecesor, little to monotonous in places, but keep the progressive elements, more towards neo in good form. The combinations between guitars and keyboards are ok, some parts are even great, like on La p'tite fille aux allumettes for ex. The band got little attention in prog circles, then like today, they are nothing realy a giant band that for some resons needed a very clouse look, but for sure they contribute to the '80's prog movement in the dark decade of prog rock genre. Pleasent album, but I prefer their first one Sabbat, is more eleaborated and quite better composed. 3 stars for Indifference.
