4 stars A solid release that does what it says on the tin. Not a wildly original outing, but one where the songwriting has a strong flow from beginning to end and the musician's stick to their strengths. The main ingredients are haunting keyboards and biting guitarwork. The guitarist is somewhat apart from his six string cotemporaries in that he doesn't altogether abandon blues based phrasing.

The vocals are not what I would consider the typical theatrical style that's familiar to a lot of other French bands, more subdued and melodic. Overall the album is distinctly French with its dark undertone, but as other reviewers have noted, there's a drop here and there of space rock.

Area70 | 4/5 |
