Two years after it's forerunner's release, Daniel Denis comes back with another album, Rhythmix again using the Univers Zero name, although it's rather clear that there is no touring group. This is not surprising seeing the number of participants into this album's mise-en-oeuvre, even if some appear on one track only, the case of DeScheemaeker, who apparently left the group, along with Semenoff and least surprising, Junior Trigaux. Another mainly-red artwork (after THQ and HW).

Musically speaking, there isn't much different between Rhythmix and HQ, both being grandsons of UZed. The music seems to come out out of the entrails of Earth with its dark and gloomy atmospheres full of near classical music but with a demonic/devilish drummer cadencing as you row your life away onto your king's galley whipped if you start to weaken.

As usual, another excellent UZ album, but the formula is becoming rather thin since this album is based again on the same UZed blueprint (IMHO), even though there is possibly two tracks that announces changes to come out. Zorgh March and Zebulon are possibly embryo of ideas that would fill up Implosion, but this remains to be confirmed. Definitely an album that belongs proudly to your shelves, but if you're a novice, start with UZed..
