4 stars Berlin is a departure of sorts for Art Zoyd, as they discovered the world of sampling. Gone is the post-symphonic breathlessness of Les Espace Inquietes, in its place an equally haunting world, but a world driven mechanically, if you will.

This is the music of dark Germanic nightmares- regal, scary and relentless. Percussion, strings, horns, voices and sampling all unwind like an evil clock towards some terrible hour. Very dark, almost as dark as 1313 by contemporaries Univers Zero. Worth the price of admission just for A Drum, A Drum.

It could receive five stars just for being different and daring, but instead I shall compare it to Les Espaces Inquietes and give it a solid four.
