This album was launched before the Alexis Band was formed. It's Eric Alexis' first album after his graduation from École nationale de la chanson de Granby and his first experience with a producer (Gerry Bribosia)... This album is more pop rock, with influences from blues, sometimes folk, sometimes progressive... Notice that the song titled Flammes vivantes, composed at École nationale de la chanson, found it's way on the album by general demand... Also noteworthy is the participation of Jean-François Aubin, aka Mutator, on the track titled Flow.
