This second album from Stone Age has a fuller synth-filled sound compared to their first. This is obvious from "Lines of Stone", with English vocals against a sweeping ambient mix. The rest of the album is mostly in French, the other English track being "Maureen Maguire". According to the liner notes, it tells the story of the artists' alter egos as four time-travelling knights - one wee bit has what sounds like a knight in full armour marching past. I guess this could be categorised as something along the lines of "Celtic rock". Stone Age use everything from syntheizers to guitars to traditional flutes and pipes to construct complex soundscapes.

"Les Chronovoyageurs" (as it's known in France) also has an extra data track containing the video to "Lines of Stone" in Quicktime format, though I had trouble getting their software to work and settled for playing the file directly.

The name of the last track, "H2πR", sounds something like "Age de pierre" - French for "Stone Age"!
