Review by Mellotron Storm
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Another great 1980 release ! How cool. This French band according to the liner notes was influenced by HENRY COW, ART ZOYD and the free Jazz movement.They liked to blend "Composition and improvisation, texts and Free-Jazz, vocals and instrumentation". Christian Robard the drummer / vibes player "Brought to life a series of expansive musical landscapes, wild songs and atmospheric scenes in which the tension slowly builds to a climax before bursting like a bubble. Breaking points, abrupt theme changes and the use of the voice as an instrument all feature heavily". To my ears this isn't Zeuhl but more in the Avant style of things, although the high pitched and melancholic female vocals along with the dark mood maybe brings that flavour to the table.Two of the guys play sax but one of them is often playing the flute.This re-issue was mastered by Udi Koomran.

"Catastrophe" features female vocal melodies and some insane flute passages in this short into to the album. What a start ! "Repos Blanc" is also fairly short and laid back with more female vocal melodies, a beat, sax and flute. "Tape Tape" opens with female vocals, cymbals and guitar with the flute arriving before a minute.The sax comes in when the vocals stop. She's back a minute later as she and the sound become more passionate. It's melancholic before 4 minutes as it settles back some. "Pellerin" has these high pitched vocal melodies with intricate sounds to start. It's pretty intense really. A change after a minute to a dirge-like soundscape with vocals.The flute sounds amazing before 2 1/2 minutes as it replaces the vocals.The sax then replaces the flute after 3 1/2 minutes.Vocals are back and then we get vocal melodies 6 minutes in.Insanity after 7 minutes to end it.

"L'oiseau Fou" starts out with vibes and bass then the sax joins in. Drums and vocal melodies after 2 minutes.Vocals and flute follow.The drums are prominant. Man this lady can sing. Mournful sax as the vocals fade away 5 1/2 minutes in. "La Mer" opens with the flute and vocals standing out as the sax and flute add depth. A change before 3 1/2 minutes as it stops and an uptempo vocal led section takes over. It settles after 5 minutes. Vibes to the fore with sax as the vocals continue. It's actually doom-like with drums and vocals.Vocals stop then a change after 8 minutes as the tempo picks up. An incredible soundscape ! Dissonant dual sax and throbbing bass lines here while the drumming kills. Amazing sound right to the end.

This is adventerous music that continues to grow on me. 4.5 stars.

4 stars Why could they keep such a high potential entirely in this album (or in a studio)? This eponymous album was released as only one creation by NOA, a short-lived Zeuhl combo in France, and this gem flooded with energetic vibes and tension always notifies me they should have stroke all of their motivation onto this obscurity or should have focused a session recording filled with their massive pleasure. The phenomena mentioned above can be heard in the last "La Mer" suite ... powerful saxophone battles, flexible wind- instrumental passages, and explosive exotic female voices ... all of them have been strictly harmonized and fantastically crystallized in spite of such a free-jazzy improvised session. This perfect sound combination drives the audience into an incredible comfort.

"L'Oiseau Fou", followed by "La Mer", is overflown with danceable tribal rhythms and surrealistic sensation. Mysteriously, even complicated melody lines through their innovative outrageous play can be absorbed into our brain like cool, smooth water stream. Splendid atmosphere is guaranteed for the audience. "Tape Tape" or "Pellerin", on the contrary, has no connection to delightful texture but weird quietness for unconscious depth psychology. Like a mind operation they would have done plenty of tonic works riding updraft. The first two short track full of improvisational bizarre are impressive too, as the curtain call in this album theater. Like the title itself, catastrophic stickiness hits us definitely. Wondering what is the basis of sound credibility for such a temporary project. They have created an excellent Zeuhlie shot no matter how obscure it is, let me say.
