5 stars I have been lucky enough to obtain this vinyl in recent years, and was totally blown-out by its blinding complexity. The Zeuhl factor is present (I'll spell 'Zeuhl' correctly, this time around - confusing word that is) but that's only applicable courtesy of the rhythm section ; a de-tuned fuzzed-out Bass sound and the crisp and heavy drumming that is imperative to this sub-genre, is featured throughout. The guitar sections are abrasive and harsh, but in-keeping with what is being presented. Atonal vocals from Ann Stewart (usually sung in a tri-tone to the key of the music) creates an unsettling, disturbed air to the pieces here, and that's built upon by Veronique Verdier's Trombone parts, and Jean-Luc Herve's keyboard rig (consisting of a UNIVERS ZERO combination of Organs, Harmonium and Piano), resulting in a Zeuhl styled Rock-In-Opposition recording. It is extremely difficult to put this one into words. It can make you laugh, cry, angry, it can repulse you, it can turn you on - this is a one-in-a- million recording, and, if you're in the mood, it will undoubtedly impress. It's not for everyone, but if you're willing to pay your money and take your chance, it should deliver. 5/5. (Word of advice - don't put this one on if you're making out with your woman......)
