2 stars ASMZ's fourth album (if you count the EP) is continuing the trend where they are completely incapable of recording more than one record under the exact same name. What this Tralala thing adds to the general feel is a mystery to me since musically speaking not much differs from preceding record. Actually to say that this album is superfluous is probably the understatement of the month, as the music drags on and on, still with the plaintive vocals, and the repetitive nature of some tracks can actually be irksome. However, the artwork sleeve is more complete and delivers more info than all of their previous albums altogether, but the music is still as obscure as previously, sometimes sounding like poor junkies chanting for their next fix. I do not know if this last remark has any ring of truth in it (hopefully for them not) , but the lack of indication of what to make out of the music is pushing the listener to the wildest ramblings, which is probably the ultimate goal ASMZ is trying to achieve.

The least I can say is that I was already not very convinced by the debut, but with this later effort, I can say that this one appears completely useless to this reviewer's eyes even though there are moments of brilliance here and there
