    Originally given to me by a former friend and fellow director, Laurent Chanez, this is one of the best, most sincere, and beautifully crafted albums I've ever heard. There's almost nothing to compare it to. Every track is filled with mood and emotion. The song writing is matched by the performances of sheer elegance. Its a journey that music lovers strive to discover. Electronic and organic. Contemporary heaven. The only parts I don't quite understand is why this isn't it hailed as a masterpiece, and continues to slip under the radar of most music fans, and why wasn't there a follow-up album. If I had to be locked into a chamber for decades but could take 10 albums with me this would certainly be one of them. Arnold Rebotini, you are undoubtedly a genius. 10/10

    Before Blackstrobe, there was Zend Avesta. Arnaud Rebotini's only album as Zend Avesta, ORGANIQUE, shows the seeds of what would eventually become the goth-electro-rock of Blackstrobe (for instance, check out the grinding guitars that explode in "Mortel Battement/Nocturne"), but here, he's still stretching his downtempo wings. "Ich Will Dir Helfen," for instance, is a thick slab of dark sonics, anchored by a eerie German operatic voice and harpsichord. On "A La Maniere," the strings that wrap themselves around the alternating lullaby and howls of Roya Arab voice lend the track a dark elegance, while "Ondine" and "Theoreme" suggest a sort of freeform jazz that resolves into downtempo journeys. There's also an ethereal beauty to "One Of These Days," thanks in no small part to Hafdis Huld's vocals. The spoken word of "Qu'Est-Ce Qui M'a Pris" morphs into musical poetry, and the final track delves into modern classical leanings. It's a little bit of a pity that there isn't any more Zend Avesta to grace our ears.
