3 stars Whatever keeps Richard Pinhas recording after some 30 years of research is undoubtedly his passion for minimalism and deeply intimate climatic Oeuvre. However I am not really sure that the man is still ahead of his era as he was in the 70's. So most of his records since that period have a bit the Déjà-entendu, but one has to check-out most of his albums because there is always some interesting ideas.

Such is the case in his latest record: the first two track are simply excellent , driven by the mad drumming of Paganotti (without any traces of Magma music, though) and Pinhas evolving above it with the usual synth layers and his ever-brilliant guitar (which by now has gotten over his Fripp influences) and computer noodlings.

However , the next two tracks are pretty unremarkable (the drums not being as present ) and the last 26 min track are obviously an intro to the next album. Will you care enough to indulge in it after having heard the intro: well I'm lucky I rented this album from the library (as I will the next one when it comes out) , but I would answer negatively if I had to buy it.
