Following Jim's post of their staggering debut, here's the follow up outing by this Canadian prog duo. While this doesn't really reach the sanctified Battiato/Pierrot Lunaire-like peaks of blissed cosmic rock that their debut crested, this is still a pretty enticing slice of tripped electronic rock Quebecois style. The somewhat systemic approach of their debut has largely ceded to something decidedly more sympho-proggy and with a sort of grandiosity to it that places it at a right angle to the understated elegance of their initial approach, especially on the first side here. Having said that, they do ultimately re-direct their aim toward the heart of the cosmos on the hot shit 10 minute finale "transit-Express", though it's approach has more akin to the "Heldon-lite" stylizations of Patrick Vian or Ose than the full-bore zonation of their "Et Le Troisieme Jour".
NOTE: IT WAS JUST BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION THAT BOTH DIONNE BREGENT LP'S HAVE RECENTLY BEEN REISSUED AS A 2xCD SET, SO I'VE REPLACED THE DOWNLOAD LINK FOR "DEUX" WITH ONE FOR ZNR RECORDS, WHO ARE STOCKING THIS EXTRAORDINARY RELEASE.
