4 stars I'm sure that Jean Louis is one of the most innovative and surprising RIO bands of the last years. Their debut is really shocking and powerful, full of enjoyable sections that mixes the most wild RIO of the new century, jazzy moods, some chamber rock and freaky syncopated rhythms. With their secind release, Jean Louis just confirm the superb talent of their musicians when they create that singular kind of music.

Even when you can find lots of influences, the truth is that the sound of Jean Louis (complex, dark, heavy and constant changing) looks very unique. The openers Lady Crash and Schaerbeek, are two clear examples of the "musical earthquake" that you'll find along the11 tracks of this amazing album full of tension, experimental fusions of different genres and construction of hard atmospheres in which crescendos leaded by trumpet and bass are totally delightful.

Some other highlights are the noisy Doom,, 5 Tournant, Morse and Sapiens, tracks in which you find a lot of great and wild moments of brilliant jazzy-heavy-RIO... I had to insist: This is one of the most interesting, experimental and innovative bands of the last years and you would't repent of take this album and listen from the first to the last second... It's a noisy trip that you deserve to listen once and again...
