    Not getting what the previous writer wants to tell about the music... But we have here a very 'cool' and 'deep' release openning with exciting 70's sensibilities, flirting between a soundtrack and an unique 'obscure' song from that time. While it keeps playing, (already settled in a softly divergeant mind-state...) music became part of your smokey-room... And that's where the trippy part starts ! 'Slippery' hits all points innitially desired: re-freshing (synthy) mellow wave in order to capture your longest and most ambiguous dream. It is maybe part of.... That's why we are not invited to consider all the retro-ish instrumentation; The ambiance and writing of this track makes it being a great nocturnal piece. Panoptique reveals himself as a loopy/shadow-esque creature that embodies at his best every narrative possibilities of a record, according as tale, a nice and intriguing 'course-poursuite' reminding some very french underground acts like PPF+ICK or Le Syndicat Electronique.

    A mixture of drama and action added by very personnal inputs turn this album to a funnily sincere, mystic and unconvetionally good record. Saving any 'pastichiste' aspect for the best of it, Panoptique alternates with 'old' and 'modern' sound-palettes (see 'Menta Y Regaliz' & 'Look At The Stars'), not without loosing his goal: keeping listener's head straightly focus on his own environnement, designing him the best lunar and creepy late night tale a lonely man can get when every shops are closed. 5/5

      This is a fantastic electronica, trance, dance, experimental, etc. album. The pressing is top-notch and the music is real good.

        "Panoptique" refers to Jeremy Bentham's project of a prison.
        The first track contains an excerp from the short story "In The Penal Colony' by Franz Kafka.
        "Sulppice" is a play on the words "supplice" (= torture) and Sulpice (a Saint).
        ... and "Sub RDV" is a very good track.

        Nice album, by one third of "Violent Quand On Aime"!
