Jupiter Sunset ‎– Back In The Sun (1970)

The one and only album from this French band.

I know next to nothing about this album as I was recommended it from a website who claimed it was as good as the best The Beatles albums. Hence, I added this album to my large album collection.

The Beatles is a good start point here. To be more precise; Paul McCartney songs in that band. Moody Blues and Aphrodites Child also springs to mind here. This is in short orchestral pop music bordering to progressive rock.

The sound is overly bloated and the songs are bordering to being over the top overly dramatic. Strings and other orchestral instruments are adding a lot of colours and pathos to the guitars, bass, drums, keyboards and English vocals here.

The end result is a couple of good songs and some rather cringe worthy stuff. It is a decent album which is well worth checking out. It is not a masterpiece though.

  1. Good info. I have the single, but how can I download this album?
    Thanks in advance!

  2. Too dramatic, almost kistch. Passionate vocals, intense keyboards. Good, but far from a masterpiece.
