5 stars The beginning of phase two and a trilogy of albums that marked the pinnacle of their career, in my humble opinion. Four epic songs, each a masterpiece, and a much tighter, uncluttered sound than Pawn Hearts. Hugues Chantraine remarks that he doesn't need cha-cha-cha on a VDGG album. Well I certainly do if they play it like that! The point is they set the listener up with a faithful lounge-style rendition and then restart the piece as a deathly, bastardised abomination that could curdle milk. They also did it to some extent with reggae on Meurglys III (from World Record). They shouldn't have stopped there in my opinion. How about 'the charleston' next or a bit of Country & Western? Could you imagine what THAT might sound like if VDGG got their dirty mitts on it?
