Prog Reviewer
2 stars This album makes a lot of references to the student movement which saw the light in May 1968 in Paris. Not only in the sub titles of the songs ("Jouissez Sans Entraves", Baisez Sans Carottes"). Both are totally linked with the Front de la Libťration de la Femme (Women Liberation Front). These are quite expressive if you do master the French language.

There are some wordings here and there which seem to come out straight from the barricades. Some "dialogues" between the police forces and the students serve as guidelines for this work. I have to say that the mixing is quite well done. Bearing in mind that the original work was released in '71, the result is not bad at all.

The second leg of this album is not so strong: it sounds as a long and revolutionary item. But with no risk since put together in a studio. For those who can grab some French though, there are interesting verbal exchanges.

Depending how close you were from these events you will differently appreciate the whole picture. Between two or three stars.

Two for me.
