2 stars In 1987, NEURONIUM has now finished its mutation and completely emancipated from its initial influences. Is this a good thing? Even for great bands, this decade saw many electronic music disasters. Nearly one of them, "Supranatural" shows Michel Huygen using cheesy electronic sounds, as well as experimenting with new effects, unfornately not the bests.

The opening "When The Goblins Invade Madrid" is the only good track of the record. A catchy sci-fi pleasant tune, if you're not allergic to 80's synthetizers. I don't personally see the relation with gobelins or Madrid, but it doesn't matter. "Digitron" is the strangest as it features bizarre vocal sounds. The music itself is rather dull and repetitive, like in the next track, "Priorité Absolue".

At least, "Europe Is Europe" is listenable. This calm new-age track is in the style of VANGELIS, however a bit too flat to keep attention. The record finishes on the 17 minutes long "Sundown At Tanah Lot". Usually, NEURONIUM's epics contains nice passages, but here there are hardly no variations. The first part is long and monotonous. The second part, more atmospheric, does not bring anything. By the way, "Tanah Lot" is a small island in Bali.

Almost as horrible as its cover, "Supranatural" is saved by its opening track, "When The Goblins Invade Madrid". One of the most dated NEURONIUM releases.
