4 stars So if I understand this correctly we have a band from France playing Krautrock and they released this album on an Italian label (Mellow Records). Got it ? Well that's just the beginning of strange goings on when we're talking about FILLE QUI MOUSSE. Many compare these guys to FAUST just to give you an idea of what we are dealing with. RYM has them listed under Experimental music and for good reason. If it wasn't for the long opening and closing tracks I wouldn't be giving this 4 stars but you know what, this band has that adventerous spirit and really this is unique when we're taking about French bands.In the cd liner notes they don't even list the song titles, they simply have Parts 1-9 35:40, so obviously this was mean't to be one long piece.

"Cantate Disprate" is my favourite.This is such a trippy tune with the prominant bass and drums leading the way until the guitar starts to solo over top. A fantastic Krautrock groove to this one. It's the type of song I could listen to for hours.

"Transcription Interrompue" is about a minute of loud jarring sounds. "Fraicheur Et Amalgame" is another short piece this time with drums and a stringed instrument making experimental sounds. "Esplande" opens with a female speaking in french while dogs bark in the background.Then after 2 1/2 minutes we get this annoying hum that continues right to the end of this 8 minute track.

"Resistance Instinctive" has piano until after 1 1/2 minutes then we get some noise added to the equation. "Quartreme Episode" has these spoken male words, drums and water sounds. Weird stuff. "Transplantation" is filled with experimental sounds.

"Antinomique" has violin and a buzzing sound (or is that me). "L'eau Etait Vitale" like the opening track is very krautrock-like. Drums, bass and flute on this one as the guitar joins in. Excellent track.

This is one of those rare occassions where i'm giving 4 stars to an album that contains a lot of soundscapes that I don't enjoy. Still this is unique and certainly for collectors i'd recommend it, and to FAUST fans.
