5 stars Freak n' roll essay with a great dose of killer guitar sounds. Heldon at their rockiest and heaviest moment for impulsive, strange and epic spaciousness. The title track features veritable amazing guitar parts (better than before) with a dense freaked out dimension: aggressive and trance like style at the same time. "Une drole de journée" is a meticulous funky, jazzy psychedelic weirdness more in the genre of RIO / avant prog. The Bolero's serie constitutes my favourite moment: gorgeous, obsessed dronescapings in a very dark tone with fascinating electronic "patterns" (for the three first parts). This serie is composed as one single track with many variations and different musical ingredients, completely immersive with endlessly haunted electronic atmospheres, nice drum parts, sometimes punctuated by Pinhas' best solo guitar works (for the last parts) A discreet musical scission with previous albums, less electronic and experimental and more orientated to sonic rock improvisations. The most complex Heldon album, entirely original and captivating.
