Alpha Centaury - Alpha Centauri (1976)

Another good prog band from France with much of the same sound as Ange and Mona Lisa. That for me spells quality. This is their only album before they disappeared again without a trace. It is also half an hour long too and that is not good value for money.

The music is based on vintage keyboards and some electric guitars. All this is fitted around French vocals in the Mona Lisa vein. The music is much more pop/rock than symphonic. The sound is sufficient, but not great.

The overall quality of the music is good. I really like the sound and the vocals. The art of song writing has eluded this band. But this is not a bad album at all and pretty much middle of the road.

3 stars
