SONGLINES TOP OF THE WORLD. Lo'Jo work because none of their songs are formulaic, yet there's no self-conscious striving to make each one different either. So is Cinema el Mundo up to their usual high standard? Of course it is. --Songlines

Lo Jo are a quirky, yet brilliant band based around a creative farmhouse in the Loire. Their distinctive sound is centred on the gravelly voice of singer/songwriter Denis Péan with backing vocals from two sisters of Moroccan origin, Nadia and Yamina Nid El Mourid. Around them are a wide range of instruments collected on their travels around the world. Even though the first song of this, their 13th album(!), follows the most clichéd chord progression in French chanson, it still sounds original and La Marseillaise en Creole typifies their playful approach. The title track is a playful instrumental with Richard Bourreau on solo violin and quirky vocal doodling from long-time fan Robert Wyatt. --London Evening Standard

...Oriental string sonorities, elegant cumbias and wheezing oompah waltzes are adopted and adapted with graceful poise. 8/10 --Uncut

They did not win awards by chance. This band has rocked along on a wonderful adventure for years, blissfully ignorant of the English-speaking world's sad ignorance. Why there are so many divisions based on language and history astounds me - good music plays well in any culture. This is better than good - sheer rocking brilliance!

A beautifully subtle record, just right for a sun filled afternoon or even better evening, fascinating tour of the world, plus fun of deciphering the French, if that's your thing

Almost their best 15 Feb. 2013

I love just about everything by this group, but if you want to buy their best album (by my lights), get "Bazar Savant."
