    It seems a timeless classic to me. And this despite one band member regarding the tracks as a sequence of demos uncertain of a future. But a lot of people now hold this record in high regard. Actually far superior to a lot of pseud electronica that followed, this was not only a pioneering work in its assemblage of styles and moods but shows what once was the juggernaut called Metal Urbain, the masters of Parisian punk, moving away from their roots whilst embracing the past and the future still energetically using their synths guitars and drum machines for their own totally original hard as nails rock n roll. Whatever Eric Debris does has the midas touch.and this masterclass rocks at any level whilst being so deft as to allow numbers to resemble film scores despite the lack of proper recording facilities employed. Jarre and Morricone would have been proud. Conversely, typically rudimentary rhythmically, you could imagine other moviestar/music crossovers Elvis or 'Sweet Marilyn' jiving along and Celluloid have been justified in putting out a powerful driving work. So don't worry China we haven't forgotten you. Your vocals, alternating here and there with Debris, are sweet and evocative of the soulful Dido. ......
    'Parlez moi d'argent' et 'd'amour' ......and Bmovies and film noir
    and Jean-luc Godard and Truffaut, the nouvelle vague encapsulating, peut-être, a seedy Alphaville and monochrome scifi demi-monde, leaving one at the heart of exciting action of consequence or left stranded in the deserted city centre or the hard side of the city at nite, hoping you know karate or can run or the Metal Boys are on your side. Sounds of the fifties and sixties. Sounds of the seventies and eighties. Sounds like forever. Sounds like Eric Debris. Le Roi.

      Just for information, Celluloid never sealed any of their records. Don't missed this point when you buy records.
