2 stars I did not exactly fall in love with an EP I reviewed earlier. My mouser loved it though.

This is the first official album from Mademoiselle Marquee, although her EPs are well over 70 minutes long too. Actually; High Tea is shorter than the EP I reviewed and comprehensive slaughtered some days ago. I am pleased to report that High Tea is a marked improvement from that EP. Not at least soundwise. Even a human being can now fully enjoy her products. The sound is mostly that good. The main instruments are mainly Mademoiselle Marquee's vocals, some guitars and a lot of sound samples.

The sound is so good on this album that I can actually compare it to something. That something is Krautrock and Guru Guru's most experimental albums. Guru Guru fans will find this album interesting.

There is no denying that this album and Mademoiselle Marquee's music is an acquired taste. There is a lot of nothing on this album where a guitar is nodding away for ages before something else, Mademoiselle Marquee's vocals or some tangents comes to it's aid. That is well after I have been bored to death and is starting to inspect the roof at my office for some help. For example trying to find the mathematic formula for it's construction. In short; I find this album pretty boring. It is a good improvement though so a couple of stars to that and some sporadic good melodies along the way. But I have to admit this is not my cup of tea.

2 stars
