5 stars Although it is their debut album, Espace fini matches what the band has recorded later in terms of musical maturity, in spite of the comparatively limited variety of instruments and tones employed, ...and also the studio provided only 16 tracks for the whole band !

This first album has exclusively electronic drums and conveys the kind of unorganic techno-industrial feel that was quite fashionable in the 80's. Applied to this very music, it makes it feel as triumphingly uncompromising, somehow like the Merrie Melodies opening theme for Bugs Bunny and co. An exquisite sense of freedom as regards the very rich input of ideas, some very bold like the weird chords that start Contrastes, an impressive rigor in terms of having it all played right and in place, yet they dare introduce it all with a jolly song "Chant Transylvain Du Sud-Ouest Tyrolien".

Their way of getting a band into playing and cutting records is of highest value at my place, and it's amazing that they've managed to keep creating such demanding pieces for so long without massive ad investment and control by the music industry.
