Percussion and male spoken words follow. Love the piano chords. Later some crazy organ playing before it changes to a new melodic, upbeat section that almost sounds like reggae. RIO fans with a general taste for live performances might also want to take note of this CD, in particular if they have yet to explore the discography of this fine French ensemble. Studio Album, 3. Bearing this formula in mind and appreciating EFL’s masterity and sense of humor, I give them these deserved 2 stars – this is not kind of music you’ll listen to all the time, but it’s worthy as an example of experimental Art.

The closing mins Histoires De Graines returns to the rough madness of the previous Amulette track with their drunken Beefheart rawness and a Hammillian way of unleashing a sonic chaos. It’s obvious that a good mastery of French is a plus for enjoyment of EFL’s oeuvre, but the leoublan is always clearly intelligible that even those with a lesser French should follow the lyrics in the booklet without much problems.
