Bluette delivers on the only things Pollen really attempts to deliver -- solid and moderately appealing power-pop/punk. As banal as the sound can, in lesser hands, be, there's something about Pollen's work that occasionally bypasses the usual pitfalls -- solid pop constructions and a fair number of fun hooks keep Bluette from sounding half as bad as is probably could have otherwise.3/ Nov 30, · Pollen Burst is the world’s first energy drink powered by flower pollen.

The tracks are less obviously progressive, and at times are more folky or For All We Know - Wes Montgomery Trio* - Guitar On The Go rock.
However Lemay is still in fine form on keyboards and his playing highlights four or five different tracks. Rivest was a talented composer and despite a mellow sound and short length of the tracks the arrangements are full of beautiful melodies and serene atmospheres. Many of the elements of "Pollen", wonderful melody, thick textures and interesting harmonies, are present on it.
However, if you are hoping for something exactly like "Pollen", this isn't it. But, in essence, this is the second Pollen's album. Essentially, it merely Tonights All Right For Love (Takes 14, 15 - 5/6/60) - Elvis* - Close Up the time it was released,as the band tries to remain current while still having some fine progressive moments on it.
Prog is my Ferrari. InTom Rivest and Lemoyne decided to form a progressive rock group. The band's name came by chance Dance Again - JLO* - Dance Again. The Hits, in the kitchen of the house where they lived together, the musicians spotted a jar of flower pollen.
The group's concerts featured sophisticated light Brass - Pollen - Bluettevisual elements and scenic effects of rare beauty. InPollen released their self titled debut album, containing some of the best and most impressive progressive rock music in North America.
But their music is more purely rooted in the symphonic genre than their countrymen, whose music is more folk-oriented, Harmonium, or more fusion, Maneige. Pollen split-up in When I'm saying that "Pollen" is the only album of the band is really true. However, Tom Rivest released in his solo eponymous debut and only album with his band mates Lemoyne and Lemay. For some reason, Pollen never managed to release a second album, but the story somehow continued with the release of that solo album because some songs were already written for the second band's album.
The line up on the album is Jacques Tom Rivest lead vocals, bass, acoustic guitar and keyboardsRichard Lemoyne electric and acoustic guitar, keyboards and bassClaude Lemay backing vocals, keyboards, flute, vibraphone and bass and Sylvain Coutu drums, vibraphone and percussion.
The first track "Vieux Corps De Vie D'Ange" immediately sets the tone for the album and represents an excellent example of the unique musical style of Pollen. The track offers up a very dramatic mixture of pomp and symphonic filled with gorgeous keyboard excursions and extremely dramatic vocals from Rivest.
This is really a great opener for the album. It opens with flute before the acoustic guitar and of the arriving of vocals. A mellow and pleasant sound is the result. This is a very interesting piece which demonstrates the band's ability to write more radio-friendly numbers.
The third track "L'Indien" is another ballad that features acoustic guitar and nice vocals. Rivest does manages to put his own stamp on this one and his melancholic crooning and acoustic guitar is achingly poignant throughout the number. This is another excellent track that maintains the high quality level of the album. The fourth track "Tout L'Temps" is a quirky up-tempo number built on a jazz-like drum beat and swirling keyboards. The band once again shows a penchant for being able to write pop pieces with symphonic flair.
The song ends on a particularly high note with some very tasty keyboards. The fifth track "Vivre La Mort" is one of the highlights of the album. The musical framework of the piece is built upon some powerful drumming and theatrical keyboard chords as the track builds to a crescendo.
Halfway, through the number, we Bright Mississippi - The Thelonious Monk Quartet - Olympia - Mar. 6th, 1965 a taste of Pollen's truly symphonic nature. Guitars and keys coalesce as the song builds up a head of steam before pushing the listener over the top in a fine display of tight musicianship.
It begins with some gentle guitar passages and delicate vocals. Slowly, the track builds in intensity until explodes in grandiose fashion. The closing 6 minutes represents its finest moment. Complex tempo changes and superlative instrumental prowess are the order of the day. Somber church organ cedes to powerful drum fills and moog madness and some excellent lead guitar before returning to the track's main theme.
It closes the album in a grand style. Conclusion: Hopefully, I've been able to express that Pollen, especially with the final long track, is one of the best symphonic progressive rock acts of the 70's, out of Europe. It Avientense Todos - Los Locos Del Ritmo - Pólvora be reported with no failures and for friends of the 70's, a full recommendation can be given.
This is the Brass - Pollen - Bluette of albums that deserve to be rescued from the shades of the 70's recording industry and taken into every good progressive music collection. For lovers of the classic progressive rock of the 70's, this album should definitely be for them, especially for those who like the French strain of the genre.
So, enjoy it, really. Formed by musicians who would later on, separately, become important figures often behind-the-scenes in the Quebec music scene, this one-off album from then-young group Pollen contains some excellent music.
However, the best tunes come at the end of the vinyl sides, while the tracks opening each side are the weakest, which means it takes a bit longer to discover the gems here. I agree with other reviewers that many parts of this album have a derivative feel, and that the writing is not yet mature, which was and still is fairly normal for a debut album.
There are sections that bring to mind Genesis, and Gentle Giant, whose tour they opened for they also shared the bill with Caravan in Quebec. The least musical track here, in my opinion, is actually the opening song "Vieux Corps de Vie D'Ange", so the casual listener might not be motivated to listen to the album too often.
But this band does have its own sound, particularly on the tunes that close each side of the original vinyl album. Of course, these for me are the highlights, and I would even say they should make it into Brass - Pollen - Bluette list of classic Quebec pieces. These harken more to Ogum Rompe Nuvens ; Ogum Tibiri ; Louvação A Ogum - Vozes Da Umbanda - Seleção De Pontos De Ogum Quebec music of the time than to the British groups.
The tune that closes side 1, "L'Indien", is really a folk tune, not even rock, but it is to me the best song on the album. Really a beautiful song, and original - very much their own voice. While I agree that the singing in general across the album is not quite on par with the best, it is still solid, and on this song it works very well. Meanwhile, the track that closes the album, "La Femme Ailee", is a minute mini-epic with some great dark organ playing, original writing, and really excellent drumming.
So, while overall the album is not likely to blow anyone away, it does contain some excellent musical tracks, and is thus worth picking up. I give this album 7. Review by FragileKings Brass - Pollen - Bluette Reviewer. The music is symphonic prog and in my opinion sounds closest to some of classic Genesis' busiest and heavier moments, though there Brass - Pollen - Bluette quieter moments of flute, piano, classical guitar and organ.
There are also some spacey effects that turn up in the first two tracks. But diversity runs throughout the album with Genesis influences cropping up here J & J Presents General Levy - Wikked - A !!! there. But while the music makes itself easily worthy of four or five stars with some top notch symphonic prog, it's the vocals that I'm afraid pull the album down a little.
Unfortunately there are a good number of times where his vocals sound forced but lacking something. Perhaps he could have left out some of the oohs, aahhh, and other vocalizations meant to emphasis feeling. Nevertheless, his singing is not so off that it's excruciating to hear. Aside from that, most of the music here is quite a ride. The beginning is a bit unassuming with its organ and Rivest's impassioned vocals.
But once he lets rip with a rather gripping scream, the music takes a turn and becomes what is for me some spine chillingly excellent prog rock. There's one part where the synthesizer sears in with such subtlety it's like a laser cutting into the base of my skull. Feelin Me - Crush - Misfortunes Of A Man stuff!
Highly recommended for most of the music. Hopefully you can deal with the vocals well Like A Virgin - Caroline Loeb - Crime Parfait. Pollen - self titled 4. What a fabulous symphonic album. Beautiful album art indeed.
Pollen music offers symphonic electricity and light technical rock, adding acoustic folk and pastoral tendencies. The final solution is an almost full star album.
They're playing real rock but seems they're gettin soft with their instrument. It's a great album to listen when you're not in the mood for something heavy but still want some high grade prog rock. The vocals reminds me of Eloy, but french lyrics. Well, it is not an innovative album, but pleasent, very very well done featuring plenty of sapid tips.
Reccomended for fans of the R. It shares similarities with artists such as Museo Rosenbach. I dug out my Pollen cd the other day that I have had for years. For some reason, I never gave it the chance it deserved. It sounded great. Especially the accoustical ballads by Jacques Tom Rivest. Then I came here and saw that he had a solo album.
So I bought it. There's a few throw away tracks but for the most part, the album is really good. The album has some serious melancholic overtones along with some wonderful melodies to boot. I don't speak French but I don't believe this to be a cheerful album. Nice accoustical passages and trimmed down keyboards. I agree with the other reviewers of this with the comparisons to Capuano, etc You can find a review of that on progarchives.
That one like this one is a total lost gem of accoustical melancholic ballads with prog elements. That one is essential just like this sadly Gianni was killed before the release of that album which makes it even more intense to listen to.
Anyhow this album was a pleasant surprise and a big thumbs up. It's a shame. Don't take my word, you can go and find sound samples on this at your favorite merchant.
That's what I did :- I listend to a few of the 30 second sound samples and said "Ok, I'm buying it!! Nice purchase. It's been a long time coming, me breaking this album and taking time to grasp it properly. I acquired it a long time ago and have grasped it, bit by bit, over the years. Featuring vitamin D and the powerful antioxidant superoxide dismutase SODthis great-tasting natural orange-flavored drink helps fight cellular damage from free radicals, toxins, and other environmental stresses.
The use of pollen is not unique to our modern world. The people of ancient China, Persia, and Egypt used pollen, collected from bees, for its remarkable health promoting benefits. Until recently, only bees, because of special enzymes in their saliva, have been able to penetrate the pollen husk and benefit from its contents.
Thanks to modern, patented technology, flower pollen can now be raised and harvested in its purest, uncontaminated form. Bee pollen is collected by bees from a variety of flowers, plants, and weeds near the hive. While doing its work, however, the bee contaminates this pollen mixture with molds, spores, and bacteria.
Thus, it is impossible to produce stable, consistent, and clean pollen from this contaminated source. It should be emphasized that the major problem with bee pollen is not the pollen itself, but the collection, storage, and processing methods used by the bee.
