Given the fact I bought this record on Amazon for 22 $ US also gives me a great satisfaction.

God the fact that I bought this record in 2018 for 36.99 CAD still brings me infinite pleasure

Believe it or not I even made a stink about shipping.

Never would have guessed how fortunate I was.

Good luck finding one for less than a kidney though! I've heard mix rumblings about a repress so my fingers are crossed for ya!

Paradis (2) - Recto Verso is an astonishingly, deeply infectious electronica album that will hit you emotionally unlike any other release from this genre ever can or ever will. This marvellous double-LP offers you a gorgeous package with highly captivating songs drenched in mesmerizing, airy melodies which will make you indulge in them over and over again.

All of the songs are accompanied by truly meaningful, beautiful lyrics. Musically, they are so sophisticated and concise at the same time - it is almost surreal. Hence virtually every track is a true marvel.

Thanks to the sensual vocals provided by Simon Mény and, most importantly, the impeccable, cohesive production work rendered by Pierre Rousseau, “Recto Verso” is indisputably the finest piece of electronic dance music released in the past ten years 🏆🥇.

“Recto Verso" is a true masterpiece in its own right and therefore HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ !

☝️Last but not least: I hate to be the bearer of bad news - And I am sorry if I burst anyone's bubble out there. But this magnificent album will most likely not be reissued any time soon! Why?

Well, Paradis (2) actually does no longer exist as a group anymore unfortunately. The two members, Simon Mény and Pierre Rousseau, had a big argument during the initial promo campaign of “Recto Verso” back in 2016. They decided to go separate ways ever since.

Background: During the promo tour for their album, the two artists performed live in various venues in France and Switzerland. However, they were not well received. It became all too evident that, like so many other EDM acts, Paradis (2) also struggled to replicate their amazing studio sound to make it work for live performances. Just check the video with "Garde Le Pour Toi" I have linked to this page and you will get the idea.

Let’s face it: Paradis (2) performing “live in concert” simply did not live up to its previous, groundbreaking studio accomplishments.

Furthermore, Pierre Rousseau also wanted to focus more on his obviously outstanding skills as a studio wizard by producing other artists as well. Something he has been doing with ever growing success since his exit from the Paradis (2) project. Just have a look at his discography as a producer and you will agree with me 👍.

In hindsight, Paradis (2) was basically D.O.A. almost immediately after “Recto Verso” was released. Consequently, the group’s record label, Universal Music France, then also abandoned all promotional activities in support of the Paradis (2) project swiftly thereafter.

The same goes for the opulent, super limited 2x12” 180g vinyl release of “Recto Verso” with its deluxe packaging including fan booklet, obi-type sticker, CD etc. There is simply no economic interest for Universal Music France, in addition of such an undertaking also being too expensive, to reproduce such a lavish vinyl package just to satisfy a few additional vinyl enthusiast like you and me out there.

So, there you have it. And if you like it or not: Vinyl is and remains unfortunately a niche by-product of the recording industry nowadays. For that reason you have to buy these super limited vinyl issues of new albums such as Paradis (2) - Recto Verso right away, before they disappear just as quickly again 😉.

Paradis is well know in France, Universal is a big major compagny, so...I'm still thinking we could expect a reissue one day. When you see today's prices, it means that demand is high, meaning money, and major like universal like that! There is still hope!

Let's hope so :( i've wanted this vinyl for so long

Does anyone have any information about reissue? Or is it never planned.

I know Pierre put out a solo record in March but according to the press release, "His solitary pursuit began as the beloved duo entered a period of dormancy, Rousseau searching for purpose in a foggy future." Sounds like they're just on hiatus. But at this point, I'd rather them repress this than put out new music if that's what it comes down to.

Don't want to ruin the prices (320€ for an LP, seriously ?) but I heard there was going to be a repress soon ; )

6 months later, still not a single sign about a repress... or the band itself. What a shame
