Atoll - "L'océan" {France} [1989] (French prog. rock)

Atoll is a part of big groups in the French progressive landscape of the years ' 80. Initially taken out in 1989, " L'océan " is a very beautiful album of progressive pop / rock which deserves that we lend it an ear.

Led by the excellent guitarist Christian Beya, Atoll proposes very beautiful melodies, a high stamp of voice perched, and very interesting compositions.

Titles such as L'Océan", "Quelque Part" or "Coup de Coeur", if they've a little aged about sounds, they remain not less very delicious in the listening there. We can also find of very beautiful instrumental as "Sahara", splendidly interpreted in the classic guitar, or "Odyssée", more rock in the spirit, but always making the beautiful part for guitars.

We'll underline the excellent quality of the vocals, it is clear, just, well mixed. Tracks follow each other while showing the same degree of quality. The last song perfectly ends this album An excellent band, highly recommanded.

I have so positive feelings when I listen to this band... Atoll proves that the Progressive music is not reserved territory only for the english-speaking bands, bacause the French language (like the Italian) is suitable for the Prog rock.
