3 stars A bit of a let down, this album.

I really like their first release, the Stoys EP. So I moved onto this album with high hopes.

Honeyelk does a pretty jazzy version of zeuhl and they can be compared to Magma. The difference is that where Magma is intense, Honeyelk is very laidback. I would label their music as lounge-zeuhl. The tempo is very pedestrian throughout.

The album opens with their best song by a large margin. Stoyz (Duel Vie) is a superb piece of zeuhl by all standards. The album tails off a bit after that in a pedestrian lounge-zeuhl fashion with a large chunk of jazz. The bonus tracks does not add anything of value to this album.

This album is a let down in my estimation and I prefer the EP. But it is still a pretty good album, saved up to a three stars award by the inclusion of Stoyz (Duel Vie). But I feel let down, though.

3 stars (barely)
