Shamal is, for the most part, a progressive rock album, half vocal, half instrumental. Penned by Mike Howlett, his ealing vocal style and lyrics will grow on you, given the opportunity. Bambooji," mostly instrumental, opens with Didier Malherbe's flute, which at times gives this tune an Asian sound. Percussion and flute dominate and yield a Scottish feeling as well.

this album is a work of immense beauty and power if you can get past the vocal parts , mireille bauer steals the show here .i played this album for the first time last night and found myself playing it for hours at a;s safe to say this is my favourite pierre moerlin gong album so far with "gazeuse" coming in second .can't wait to further explore the moerlin gong albums.
