4 stars One of avantgarde progressive rock veterans FRENCH TV's newest album has hit me completely. No difficult word nor extensive stretch needed but combinations of delightful instrumental bullets launched in the whole production.

Each phrases with complicated rhythms and massive sound-based gestural power cannot be created with eccentric instruments but with a simple formation like a guitar, a bass, drums, percussion, a synthesizer, or a keyboard ... such a basic rock combo style. The frontman and the bassist Mike has created sound elements with lots of addictive and sensational tonic explosions frankly inspired by avantgarde progressive vanguards like Zappa. Every single sound bullet is impressive and enjoyable, not difficult to digest at all, amazingly.

We can get immersed in their mazy crazy soundgarden, where nobody knows what would pop up in succession. Some synthesized sound effects are pretty effective for every pleasure song (just like "Gee, I Wish We Had One'a Them Doomsday Machines" ... exactly like a paranoiac sound hotchpotch rushing out of a treasure box meh). Sometimes dynamically and sometimes sensitively their magical mystery tour goes forward ... as if we would stumble upon quite a few mysterious obscure spots here and there. And no painful accident nor serious incident would not come on ... through their cool and clean plays.

Sorry for my tough-to-understand words but their mystic soundscape can get understandable just the moment you listen to this terrific album. ;)
