4 stars I was presented to the French band Jack Dupon in 2013 when they were releasing the album JÚsus L'aventurier. I was a bit skeptical about them because I'm definitely not a huge fan of Avant Prog. However, there was something on Jack Dupon that caught my attention. Since then I've been following them very closely.

Their new album, Empty Full Circulation, released on March 21st, is their 5th full length album and what a good surprise!

Initially the todays listener may be worried by the 'short' duration of the album (just shy of 34 minutes). But what people from the CD/Download era forget is that this duration was absolutely normal for the 70's era. This isn't really something to get worried though, Empty Full Circulation has so many details that the 34 minutes seems to be at least one hour long, not because it drags endlessly, on the contrary. The strenght of this record is that you can keep listening over and over and you're going to get new details every time.

Another topic to be mentioned is the actual content of the songs. Jack Dupon's native city is Clermont-Ferrand in the central region of France. Not far from there we can found the city of Randan, the band got inspiration in this city and its forests, castle and some amazing tales that come from this place. This time Jack Dupon is singing in English but they didn'y lose their exotic French flavour because of that.

Once again Jack Dupon delivers to the audience an album that is at the same time weird and solid. Empty Full Circulation has so many details and hooks that you will be able to enjoy this album for a long time yet. I guarantee!

Key tracks: 'Flower Way', 'Broken House' and the closing track 'The King Hedgehog' are the best tracks!

4 stars French band JACK DUPON has been a presence in the French music scene for more than a decade, and as recording artists they have issued new material on a regular basis from 2006 and onward. 5 studio albums, two live albums and one DVD have been released by the band so far. "Empty Full Circulation" is their most recent studio albums, and was self released by the band in 2016.

If you know, love and treasure your progressive avantgarde rock, Jack Dupon is a name you should already be familiar with. If you for some reason or not aren't, just about any of their albums are good starting points for getting to become more familiar with them. "Empty Full Circulation" is on the same level as the rest, but as this is their sole English language production, those who prefer English language albums are well advised to pick up this one prior to the others. A good quality album, again, from this fine, French foursome.
