4 stars Another pleasure has come to me. This "Operation: Mockingbird" has been released in September, 2017 as a FRENCH TV's newest album, that I could not wait for until then.The previous creation "Ambassadors Of Good Health And Clean Living" is one of the best albums in 2016 for me, so I've listened to and digested their new album carefully, with having massive expectation and slight anxiety. Just the moment I completed this stuff, my tiny anxiety was blown away.

"Operation: Mockingbird" is full of unique musical ideas, cynical phrases, and auditory illusions. Like an expensive bottle of French wine or Opus One in California, there is a kind of complex harmony and delicate balance produced with lots of magnificent sound elements. Sounds like each of the elements cannot be matched with others, but as a matter of fact, all of them can be harmonized perfectly, with incredible complexity.

What I can clearly understand via this album, their sound structure smells of apparent humanity, that might be deeply in a mind of every French TVer. I cannot help feeling that this soundscape has broken naturally out through their session or play rather than been produced artificially by themselves. Very sensitive melodic / rhythmic construction is well matured, regardless of fragility. What a mystery, and decent explosion.
