3 stars Uppsala, this unknown zeuhl band from France with only one album released in 1983 and re issued on CD by famous Musea label in 1995. I'm totaly agree with previous reviewer who said that he needed more time then usual to get into, this selftitled album is a real hard to follow from only 2-3 listings, because the music is quite complex, very unusual arrangements, very jazzy sometimes, in other segments is avant gard but melted as a whole with zeuhl elements. Also the album is very mid tempo most of the time, with some more lighter moments then on usual music like this, not bad of course. The head of the band Philippe Cauvin , guitarist and vocalist here did a great job, but as a whole the album is only ok and nothing more. The band name and the longest track from here named aswell Uppsala is taken from the town with same name from Sweden. Other piece is called Coste and Jukka, named after two famouses musicians Coste Apetrea and Jukka Tolonen. So overall a good album, hard to digest in only few spins, but after more then 5-6 listning I begun to realy find the hidden great moments. 3 stars to this album , quite unnoticed by many, even zeuhl fans don't know and heared about this band who manage to make some ripples around them but only for little time.
