4 stars With this record started one of the most incredible bands appeared in recent years, the undefinable world of FRENCH TV. Very difficult not only to label, but also to describe its music: from the pseudo folk of FRED FRITH and ZAMMLA´s to the jaaziest canterburied sounds, from low range soundscapes to highly distorted sounds. Impossible to describe, the music of FRENCH TV is always surprising, impossible to classify, always unpredictable, funny in its seriousness... In other words, there are no words to describe it. Although this first record sounds undoubtedly less balanced than next ones, it doesn´t mean that it isn´t very elaborate, it only means that history was starting from this point. Maybe there are other records to start with their music, but if you already know the band, this record is absolutely necessary for you. For non initiated, it can be a bit difficult to assimilate it, but after a few listenings, you can discover things that no other band can offer.

4.5 stars
