I do not understand the bad feedback this album gets. For me its the best cassius album out of them all. No, not all the tracks are great, however there are plenty of gems in this uplifting, chilled and amazing album.

This is a really strange release from the both guys of Cassius. I bought the previous release and the follower of this album and was really amazed what quality the duo had produced. But when I bought this I really felt ashamed of it.

I don't know what I can say about it, there are only 3 songs on the whole album I like. The best one out of these is "The Sound Of Violence", followed by "Nothing" and place 3 is "I'm A Woman".

Seems as if Cassius needed a disc to put all there samples on, without getting them in any order. I had headaches listening to this for the first time. I only knew bands before that were getting badly by every album they released, but Cassius made some steps that nobody could understand.

For anyone who plays with his thoughts and doesn't know if he or she should buy this record, I would tell him or her to pay for the rare singles instead and listen to '1999" and "15 Again". I think this release will get a big crust of dust in my collection after a while.

You can do it - better, Cassius. Looking forward for the next release after "15 Again".

"The Sound of Violence" is a brilliant track, the best Cassius have ever produced. Worth buying for that track alone. However, also contains other gems such as the Al Green sampling "Under Influence" and "Telephone Love" which uses some top-notch filtering and production techniques to make another fantastic track. People tended to ignore this album, I've no idea why, perhaps people were hoping for a revisit of 1999 but this is a far more varied, mature album IMO.

Thrilla (feat. Ghostface Killa) is the most bizarre, twisted, post-apocalyptic mutant neo-hip-house oddity there ever was, and I love it with all my heart. I remember this coming out about the same time as the Joe Budden / Busta Rhymes collab (which also ran about 122 bpm), and everybody was saying "watch out, hip house is making a comeback!"
If only this had been true...

The disco aesthetic has always been a part of the French house scene, and it certainly played a part in Cassius’ first album, <I>1999</I>. On their new album, <I>Au Reve</I>, however, disco seems to have taken over entirely -- and not necessarily in a good way. Ghostface Killah from the Wu-Tang Clan puts in an appearance, and while is flow is fine, the final product sounds like a hip-house project from the late 80s, when such a thing was new. Now, however, it just sounds tired. “Telephone Love” shows a little inventiveness, but not even the might Jocelyn Brown can save “I’m A Woman, ” which becomes generic diva house. “20 Years (How Do You See Me Now)” isn’t completely realized, while “Au Reve” don’t really go anywhere. I was really hoping for more, especially since Cassius is ½ of Motorbass –- now there’s something to dream about.
