3 stars La Théorie Des Cordes is the French jazz rock band with Mathieu Torres M'Z at the helm; this 2nd album features the logbook of suicidal pilot Andreas Lubitz, of Germanwings flight 4U-9525 which crashed with 149 people; good whether you are a Bokononist or not the titles are supposed to get you to the final station without too much risk; rock, prog, jazz, RIO, Canterbury, hard, avant-garde, ambient, gently musical madness.

'YYC' - Blanc de Calgary for a languorous piano declination with the addition of the guitar which rises in a frenetic crescendo. 'HKG' - Serra 'Subway' Low Summer Cancer as an appetizer; the jazzy drums announce the color for a bewitching melancholic digression; the free-jazz-rock guitar points to wild, breathtaking Al Di Meola. 'LAX' - The death of the Buddhist with the overriding bass roaring from the speakers, a sign of the pilot's last moments of lucidity? A moment of introspection or irremediable drift. 'ALP' - The colossus of Anatolia jazz-rock, oriental sounding, heavy rise with this bewitching guitar putting in trance; a more aggressive title surfing on Zappa; the last minute? furious madness hard challenging. 'CDG' - Need for speed again this disconcerting jazz-rock frame due to a rise associating a variation; when the notes intertwine. '???' - The laws of attraction or doubt is no longer allowed; the dark declension reminds 'Sorcerer' of Tangerine dream, a bit of psyche à la Pink Floyd and here we are in the final trajectory; passengers were aware at the time? Ask the musical notes, the angst is noticeable. 'DBA' - The big hotels whether or not you like this musical genre, it becomes scabrous given the intensity provided; the plane dives, the controls are blocked, the passengers panic, move in the plane but cannot make it resume a normal curve; the jazz associated with the madness of a man who wanted to become famous in an ephemeral way? angry guitar, the dive; 8 minutes not to listen to if you have lost a friend in this flight, otherwise it is twirling and sickly enjoyable. 'BCN' - Terminal soaring for the final fall or the impossible hope of seeing it rise again? How notes can accommodate each other and show this is what Mathieu did. 'DHS' - There will be nothing left where the shock, the fumes, the explosion, the end without detour.

La Théorie Des Cordes, Stéphanie, Hugo and Heiva accompanying Mathieu for a particular journey guiding us on a jazz rock fusion base to hurry; an alternation of soft moments with aggressive, unstructured flights; apart from this traumatic episode why not sit down, listen and imagine that we are all currently in a huge plane out of control and savor the last moments of our musical life?(3.5)
