5 stars This is just overwhelming. It seems to be a concept album about water and its different manifestations. Whatever it was meant to be, musically the thread is never lost. It is more like a single 40 min song with recurring themes all through. Heavy, psychedelic, dreamy. It is perfectly composed, creating tensions and surprises. It catches you in the beginning and doesn't let you go until th end. First you've got the quiet before the storm with twinkling, rippling sounds. Perfectly to lean back and kick of your shoes. But after about 5 minutes the song is living up its name. A monstrous tsunami wave hits your speakers: A heavy, nearly doom-like riff (due to its slow tempo). Like the ocean itself it is rising and ebbing away, hitting again when no one would expect it. Seamless it fades into the next track. A groovy bass and drum section accompanies again twinkling and dreamy but also disturbing sounds made by guitar and synth. The song constantly evolves without changing the theme. Now "Evaporate" starts right off with a kickass drum and bass line and heavy riffs. Again, the dynamics are perfectly balanced. "Voyage automatique" continues the overall concept of the Album. Dreamy, floating but still very impulsive. When the last sounds vanish, you get the feeling of waking up from the big sleep. Little sizzling noises and reality turns back in. 555555 Stars
