CD Reviews

The best french pop band
06/01/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Beautiful music: sweet melodies and well-advised harmonies. If you like the beatles, brian wilson, ray davies, the byrds and xtc, you will like this record."
Strangers in their own country!

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Wow!. I never thought i would talk about a pop band from France. France, musically speaking, is a third world country, but sometimes you discover an oasis in the desert and you recover energy and optimism. First song describes all the problems they have had to become they are. Bravo! guys. You really love pop music!"
