2 stars This album started so nice, but the title track "En Attendant Cousteau" (47:00 minutes) was a big disappointment! The Calypso-tracks are very nice, with steel-drums and nice feel. These makes me happy and are very exotic (not simple though). However, the last 47 minutes is different: Very ambient and avant garde/"arty" in a way that doesn't match at all with the joyful opening tracks. "En appendant Costeau" sounds the same for all 47 minutes, with piano "plinking" on top of ambient synthesizer sounds. Maybe this would fit perfectly in an art gallery or design showroom, because there just isn't anything that catches your interest, you can focus on something else. I almost fell asleep.
