4 stars There is quite a change in Univers Zero's sound between the previous album, Ceux Du Dehors and this one. That is understandable, an Daniel Denis changed the entire lineup for this album.

The change is noticable immediately. The first track, Présage, while sounding very much like a Denis composition, also has an almost jazz fusion sound at the same time. It's this sound that would carry on through the next album, the spectacular "Heatwave". The next three songs, are more chamber-like, more like what we are used to from Denis and his cohorts, albeit a little more piano- heavy.

The last piece, Emmanations, is something of a mix of the two styles. With stronger drum rhythms and more prominent bass, it seems that Univers Zero is heading closer to rock territory. "Heatwave" will continue in that direction.

3.5 stars, rounded up.

Evolver | 4/5 |
