2 stars Funny, I was never big fan of noises, nonsense music, avant garde in popular way of this word (I like my nation's avant-garde music), or hypnotic music. And that's exactly what this is. But I decided long time ago to be fair, somehow. This is their roughly 40th year of existence, but it don't mean much in this kind of music. Normal prog rock can grow old, senile and commercial, as band do the same thing (except 2nd attribute), but not krautrock. So I'm not against the style itself, but I evaluate how this record sounds, what innovation it brings, melody, vocal, instrument, composition factor etc.

"Accroché à Tes Lèvres" 's best part is last minute, where more instruments starts to play. They finally show some emotions, not just monotone melody disrupted occasionally by shouts of singer. And other tracks, well, I have to say that there are ideas. "Petits Sons Appétissants" is very good, with different variety of sounds used. Yes, this is one of these one-listen, instant-reply reviews, which I write from time to time. And after all, I may be grateful and give better rate better, than I intended before (three minus or even two plus). Complique as complicated (or Czech komplikovane, which is quite same, just c=k and suffix "ane") I suppose. "Bonjour Gioacchino" is maybe repetitive, but original. No, it's just not my cup of tea (and by this I don't mean that I don't like it, I do a little bit, but I see little progress here, therefore not so prog), but still good candidate for

3(+), if you like repeating music, add 1 star
