Alice - Arretez le Monde. 1972 France

Alice were a French pop band experimenting with orchestrations and other trendy "progressive" ideas. In that way, they remind me of the Italian groups doing similar like Delirium's Dolce Acqua or The New Trolls Concerto Grosso No. 1. When Alice are strictly instrumental, they can be highly fascinating, and utilize a multitude of instruments (including mellotron). But they are pop singer songwriters at heart, and those moments are pretty hard to stomach, unless you're a fan of said style.

No legitimate reissues exists as I update this post from the CDRWL (with a recent listen).

Last listen: November 7, 2017
