4 stars Archaia play a style of Zeuhl which combines chunky bass lines from Michel Munier (whose skills are on a par with Jannick Top's) with Heldon-influenced synthesiser interventions from Pierrick Lebras and Philippe Bersan. (Pierrick also plays a decent guitar.) Tending slightly towards the creepier, scarier end of Zeuhl, the album shows an impressive mastery of the form which isn't quite on a level where I'd recommend it to people new to the genre - it's not as good as Magma, and since it isn't very accessible I'd recommend listeners become conversant with other Zeuhl groups before trying it - but it's worth a listen for any fan of the form.
Warthur | 4/5 |
