5 stars A power sextet. Zeuhl at its best. Eros is for sure my favorite french album and I like its irony: The song Eros is diabolical just like the album cover, the funny thing is that Eros is the greek name for cupid (or love god) - I also don't think love is like a fairy tale but talk about passion with angry is quite depressive.

As I listened to this album, I found vibraphones, flutes and a power percurssion - three of my favorite elements of instrumentation. About the song structure: dissonance, distortion and lots of tempo changes, bizarre tempos also. It is quite avant.

About the songs: I think the single defect it's on the last minutes of the first song - is too repetitive. But in its beginning, "L'Epice" is just phenomenal. The beginning of "Arrakis" remembers me Bossa-Nova, a brazilian movement that reminds jazz and popular brazilian music (interesting, huh?) and the percussion passage on its end is one of my favorite compositions. "Bitonio" and "Eros", the second side of the vynil, are just diabolical and bizarre; emphasis to all the instruments and highlightes to flute on "Eros" and keyboards on both.

A Masterpiece for sure.
