5 stars EFL is one of the original RIO bands, and one of those who doesn't always get all the attention they deserve. Well, "Les Poumons Gonfles" has to be one of the best of the honest to goodness RIO albums. The album is very fast paced and active, with instruments of rock, jazz, and French folk all coming out quick and playful, and drums pounding away with fury. The record is just plain a fun listen. "Nicolas" is the best track, and it's our rambunctious opener, showing off the band's lighter side, and the second best, "Those Distant Waters", is one of the two drum workouts and a chilling cut about seafaring. Beyond the obvious enjoyment, LPG features some wonderful strangeness and complexity from our Francais friends, with the aforementioned instruments many, and constantly rotated to allow for many different sounds. And thanks to the band's skill, this all works excellently. An avant romp done to perfection, I would recommend this masterpiece to anybody and everybody. And perhaps this is the best introduction to avant-prog.
