2 stars This sixth album from the band (or the man) is not an easy one to penetrate. And I guess that I have given it up after several listening. I had the same feel about their previous and quite chaotic work "Un Rêve Sans Conséquences Spéciales".

This "Interface" is just a juxtaposition of weird moments for about forty minutes. Even if the guitar work from Pinhas saves the bill more than once ("Jet Girl"). Experimental and quite difficult to approach.

It is true to say that "Bal-A-Fou" has a definite and early Floyd feel, combined with a clear jazzy experience. It is probably the best thing featured on this work while he recurring theme of "Soucoupes Volantes" leaves me cold and wandering.

All hopes are left in the hands of the epic and title track. But there again, expectations are not met although I have never expected too much from "Heldon". Some nice avant-garde music for their early works but no great albums as far as I'm concerned.

The hypnotic (but thin) theme from "Interface" is hardly going to change my overall mind about this album. I'm not very enthusiastic about this release and I can't really go over two stars to rate the music that is displayed. In one word: abstruse. Or hermetic.
