This is an under-rated gem. Every so often, I pull this out for
a listen and I am amazed at how emotive and beautiful this record
is, even today.

The two tunes on the B-Side have the same sensibilities that the
best of Kraftwerk & UR have to offer and could also sit
comfortably in the back catalogue of Warp's Artificial
Intelligence period. Touches of acid house/Italo house combined
with lush strings and the occasional hint of an acoustic guitar
solo seamlessly merged into lush, epic progressive deep house
tracks.

I hear all manner of influences in these two tunes, intentional
or not. But it stands on it's own as a quality release in it's
own right.

It's just so perfectly French and I am proud to have it in my collection.

Bonze should hold his head up high, for he has produced a record
that can sit at THAT table along with the finest in history.
