3 stars This album continues with the classic Garolou sound, although with less of the traditional folk and multi-part vocals that worked so well on their previous self-titled album. This album contains two of their concert favourites "Sur Le Bout Du Pont" and "Quand J'Etais Garcon", which are among their more rocking tunes, although they are not my own favourites. The most musical tunes on the album, and the ones closest to their sound on their first two albums, are "Nicholas" and the closer "Le Condamne". There is also the Acadian- and zydeco- influenced "Danse de La Limonade", which was recorded live, and is a lot of fun. There is only one song I don't like on this album - "Dans Paris" - it is the only one that might be considered AOR, with slick sounding synths and saxophone solos. If you like their first two albums, you will like this one too, as it really (mostly) keeps to the same sound. I don't think it is quite as good as those though, so only pick this one up after you get the earlier ones. I give this 7.2 out of 10 on my 10-point scale, which translates to 3 PA stars.
