3 stars 01. Ces Gens-Là

That is a smart guitar! Slow and very different. The bass pretty at our face (Daniel Haas) and the guitar of Jean-Michel Brezova is lost in its sounds. The voice of Christian Decamps is very interesting, and I never thought that french could be interesting. A very emotional, interpretive vocal. The mid session begins wonderfully and shortly thereafter modulates the tone for the solo and the drums from Jelsh Gérard are quite good.

02. Aujourd'Hui C'est La Fête Chez L'Apprenti-Sorcier

From the beginning remains only a wisp of sound, close to the 2nd minute of music comes a few very good fingered parts, the keyboard and background vocals are whispered.

03. Bivouac - 1ère Partie

Almost a commemorative song. Beautiful vocal performance, and a merry band (at least for a few seconds). From now on one sound dominates, the one I call 'infinitum' saound, you know those riffs that are repeated without tiring? So! Meanwhile guitar and keyboard fills with solos.

04. L'Espionne Lesbienne

What a cool guitar, vocals even more so, fast and confusing phrases. Flutes and effects, but the best is the main theme with its guitars and with duplicate vocals from Francis Decamps.

05. Bivouac Final

An instrumental with variable proportions, full of sounds and peculiarities, a continuation of tracks 3 and 4.

06. De Temps En Temps

A slow, hypnotic groove, with vocals sung in a way that, it isn't strange, but different. In fact a delicious sound, almost devastating. The best of the album for me. It has a cute and catchy chorus.

07. La Route Aux Cyprès

Again the guitar rules, and that's great. The folk part is excellent. The guitar gives some sample sounds here and there. Vocals and emotion. A guitar more 'agitated' at the end and 'that's all folks! "

08. Le Cimetière Des Harlequins

The song that named the album is symphonic, a little space. With a good bass line and great vocals, wich by the way, are the strong points in this album. From now on half the song collapses, is a haunting, scary, speed increases, the representative of the sentiments expressed in madness lost in musical notes. When you regain the 'conscience' is not yet too late for them to gain the listener again (laughs), and do so.

In fact 3.5
