    Archaïa is an example of music were musicians have listened to and drawn inspiration from diverse music in extremely successful way. The music on the album is gorgeous mix of Magma era MDK, proto-world music (Jade Warrior, Oldfield), Arachnoid, Heldon, psychprog (Hillage), jazz fusion (Mahavishnu), dark chamber music (U. Zero) etc.. Group was basically trio of guitar, bass and percussions (no drums), and both guitarist and percussonist played fantastic droning keyboards.  As linear notes say, band was under heavy influence of Magma, because they invent similar (the meaning of this word is rather relative here) tale, based on the drowned Atlantis rising again, which is Archaia. Core members even give themselves sort of Cobaian pseudonyms (Pierrick Le Bras = Perig Ar Braz; Michel Munier = Mickaлl Candasami Muntër), well, they must have drowned themselves in Mekhanik Destruktiw Kommandöh. Beside Cobaian component, band or at least one member, was heavily into Eastern meditation techniques, Hindu, maybe even Tibetan, what can be discerned from the differently pitched mantras (quite present on the recording).  In 1979 group disbanded apart from the numerous reasons, some mentioned in the linear notes, some not. Bassist Michel Munier later appears in the Ange/Mona Lisa clone-band Grime, cunningly and thoroughly hiding his roots. Perhaps, the work could be a bit more elaborated, at least one album more and things would set into hundred-percently proper mould. If you're into Magma, Heldon and heavy psyche dronners, you can dig this blindfold.  -- Nenad Kobal
