Great solid French electronic music. (I hesitate to say 'techno,' because several genres are represented here.) Suffice it to say, when everyone else was all about the filtered disco, the Youngsters never let their eyes off the techno ball. "Illogique," for instance, has an undeniable drive, while "Flightcase Pour Criquets" approaches things from a more mellow stance. "Lost In Palavas" brings in some jazz breaks, but it's "Choose" that brings in the Detroit melody and solid beats. "Doutes et Certitudes" starts with a spacious feel, letting the breaks and alarm clock fall in as a wake-up mechanism, and despite the promises of "Abusive Melody," it's not quite as pummeling as you'd expect. The cut-up of "Dub Cham Me" has a sparse jazzed-up charm, and the final track, "Smile" delves into shiny tech-house. A genre-straddling work, with a few genres turning out better than others.

This album is the best thing out of France since Daft Punk's "Homework". A fantastic album from start to finish, I really can't fault it. "Illogique" is just unspeakably brilliant, a brooding techno monster with a well-used vocoder (no, really). "Spanish Harlem" bangs relentlessly, "Choose" is rather uplifting, "Anxious Boy" has quite delicious synths, "Friperie Connection" is a mental breaks number with an evil streak, and "Abusive Melody" is rather overwhelming (which is great). Every track is superbly and innovately produced, and it's just a fantastic album that everyone from hardcore techno addicts to jazzmongers should love. FANTASTIQUÉ!
