Rinôçérôse returns for a second round of rock-house-pop (with flutes!) on MUSIC KILLS ME. And right from "Le Rock Summer," you hear some disco being thrown in the mix, a nod to the much-vaunted 'French touch' of the late 90s, while the title track and "Dead Flowers" pump up the rock elements. "Lost Love" has a catchy soul-pop chorus, but it doesn't work quite as well on "Resurrection D'une Idole Pop." But the groove and sax squelches on "Professeur Suicide" stands up well on its own, as does the melodic retort to Jimi Hendrix, "No, We Are Not Experienced!" They enter more downtempo territory with "Brian Jones: Last Picture" and "Obseques D'un Guitar Hero," though they overdo the guitars on the latter (much better is the simpler "Highway To Heaven.") But the jazz-tinged bossa nova of "Dead Can Dance" help make up for any lapses. A nice, if inconsistent album.
