Album Review

Excellent tripped out French Sci-Fi/Psych Rock with narration en French. This is an album length story (mostly) narrated by Paris-based comic book artist & (apparently) very popular radio serial host Gilbert Delfez.

The music however, is made by France's fantastic 70's act, Jacky Chalard and Dynastie Crisis. This band can also be heard on the compilation "Cherrystones: Hidden Natural Charms" (which we have-look for it!). Lots of groovy, guitar fuzz, big bass & beats - completely enjoyable - even if you don't know French. Much more history in the booklet.

((((((1)))))) Killer beat, giant bass proggy psych keyboards & fuzz.
((((((2))))) Same as before only with interesting narration.
((((((3)))))) Funky background, multiple narration.
(((((((4))))) Another, shorter variation of #1 with some funny sounding narration
(((((5))))) Bouncy tempo, loose bass, GREAT drumming & guitars. Reminds me a lot of Gong. Trippy narration with plenty of drama & action.
(((((6)))) Cycles back to the main theme (again Track #1) with echo-y, short narration.
((((((7)))))) Ah yeaaah! French-space-funk & more interesting & cartoon-y dialogue. C'est Magnifique!
(((((8))))) Laid back "come down psych" piece with nice mellow lady voice & flute.
(((((9))))) AWESOME funky-yet-totally rockin' guitar fuzz. Then secret space chamber j'accuse moment?
((((10)))) Circles back to the main theme, short narration.
((((((11)))))) 80's video games in the 70's? Heavy narration with cool "very French" enunciation. (Hard consonants & vowels).
(((((12))))) Circles back to #1 and provides a summary of where we've been so far in the story.
(((((13))))) Slow, woozy space-rock backing with climatic narration. Trip-eee.
(((((14)))) Chaotic whistles, seals, birds & Latin drumming, sultry lady & loud chorus that goes "hey Corto!"
((((15))))) Instrumental version of #14.
(((((((16))))))) Funky, electronic French space rock like Gong, Hawkwind with a 70's glam rock marching band leading the way. Damn, this is GREAT!
