Great (and unique ?) 2CD worth-it album of the 1980's period of Magma, with strong fusion
and even Motown influences (a la "Looove boaaat ! La la la la..."). ALmost unedited
tracks, technically furious and sometimes very funny ! No comparison with "Merci" for
example...Includes 30 minutes extract from unfinished Zess (3 hours long ?!?!),
Retrovision (like in Retrospectiw III), Otis (Yep: a tribute to Otis Redding), Hhai (the
craziest one), etc... Vander is half behind his drum, half singing.

disapointed ! ONly one is "good", with half Magma: it's titled "Fusion".
