2 stars The first studio album after 10 years, this album features the "double trio" - two guitarists, two bassists, two drummers. The production here is much better than on the albums of the 80s and the music is much more diverse. Still a lot of fillers though...

The album starts nicely with "Vrooom" - a good rocking instrumental. "Coda : Marine 475" is the first filler on this album. "Dinosaur" is a great rocker - very satiric lyrics, catchy melody. "Walking On Air" is one of those nice soft track the band is really good at (a bit like "Matte Kudesai"). "B'Boom" is another nice instrumental - the drumming duo is really in front here. "Thrak" is one of those heavy improvs the band like to make and which I don't like really much. "Inner Garden" I and II are small nice acoustic interludes compared to the two fillers "Radio" I and II. "People" and "Sex Sleep Eat Drink Dream" are cheezy pop songs with silly lyrics. "One Time" is my favorite here - beautiful emotional ballad with frail vocals. "Vrooom Vrooom" closes the album with somewhat a reprise of the opening track - the coda here being really superfluous.

Rating: 63/100
