5 stars This album is the French quintessential in spacey-droning electronic universe. The concept of "perspective" (song titles) linked to "the elasticity of humanity" and the "chaosmos" always refers to Gilles Deleuze and a part of the contemporary French philosophical tradition. "Agneta Nilsson" is far better than everything else written by Heldon. Richard Pinhas occasionaly abandon the "frippertronics" to let the place to hyper-visceral and hypnotic floating electronic textures. No electronic rhythms just an amazing electronic storm, with haunting, eerie, surreal sounds. The first track is just unbelievable and can remind some of electro-acoustic researches from the GRM; a spacey "kosmische" soundscape with ultra vibrating sounds. "Bassong" is a nice bass guitar ambient interlude. "Persepctive III" features an abundant use of electronic minimal (but dynamic) patterns , creating a luminous, concentric dreaminess. "Perspective IV" looks like more previous compositions of the band with glacial hypno-pulsations, driving, technical drums. Electronic grandeur and trance like (psych-acoustic) effects for a true classic!
