This one is an absolutely timeless masterpiece! Minimalistic sequences meet old-fashioned synthesizers and synthesizer percussion noises, sometimes definitely a PPG Wave synthesizer is also involved, vocoders and a very nice positive feeling. This album is very danceable, modern, innovative and imho a milestone in minimal electronic pop. Every minimal electronic-, Telex-, YMO-, electronic dance music lover or -DJ should have this one in his collection for sure. Also a must-have for those, who would love Indochine even more without all these guitars. An electronic album without any useless filling material at it's very best, you could listen to it again and again...
