I downloaded this album after seeing several of his videos on YT. I'm so glad I did, although it is a slow burner. You get the feeling that it's art more than music to Yoann Lemoine. He rockets big band drumming throughout 'The Golden Age' but his voice is an acquired taste.

After several listens, you forget the shortcomings of the range in his vocals and are entwined in the emotional side of his vocals, his vocals seem visceral.

Standout tracks for me are 'I love you' and 'Conquest of spaces' the former a message carved from deep in one's soul and the latter a musical swirling epic.

Everytime I listen to this album it surprises and beguiles me with something new, growing with each listen. All in all, a very modern masterpiece.

I, like other reviewers, bought this album off the back of his initial release, which included tracks such as Iron and Brooklyn. This album has some really strong tracks in the first half and really holds its own, sadly though it seems to fall off a little (at least for me) in the second half where the tone of the album changes.

I would have like to have seen some of the other tracks from the first release appear on here instead of just iron but all in all it is a good album and would be a great addition to any ones collection.

Woodkid makes truly epic music.

Whenever I'm listening to his music, especially through headphones, I feel like I'm in a film. Not just any film, like an epic, emotionally exhilarating film that I know if I watched would stay with me forever. And I'm the lead.

I have been waiting for this album since I first heard Brooklyn and fell in love, suffice it to say, I'm still in love.

I think i bought the album on the strength of hearing 'Run Boy Run' on 6 Music; it did not disappoint. Rich and engaging it keeps you hooked and guessing from beginning to end. Syncopated rhythms dart between vast, swirling cinematic landscapes. It is an album to lift you from the gloom, spin you round and let you believe that anything and everything might just be possible...

I love an album that takes you on a journey rather than just throw random tracks at you. Calmed and soothed by 'Boat Song', 'I Love You' comes crashing back in with beating drums and tortured shouts - this is no drippy love song but a passionate plea from a breaking heart. 'The Shore' is an ironic, lilting, shoulder-shrugging, deeply moving, chest-beating cry for what might have been. And so the album continues. Listen to it and then listen again. Immerse yourself in its rich and detailed orchestration. 'Shadows' is two glorious melancholic-minutes of sweeping strings joined halfway through with spiralling pipes, grounded by dark, threatening brass. The opening drums of 'Stabat Mater' borrow from Motzart's Requiem, gloriously followed by the anthemic 'Conquest of Spaces' with yet more spiralling pipes (think dream sequence from 'Company of Wolves'), underpinned with crashing, rhythmic drums and gutsy brass. The fourteen tracks are all relatively brief, but that is one of the album's strengths - it never bores.

Woodkid's vocals are perfectly pitched and suit the mood of the album beautifully, or rather the album is beautiful product of his enigmatic vocal style. Fans of Paul Hegarty and Patrick Watson will be in familiar territory.

Give yourself time to listen from start to finish, and then to listen again.

I don't often buy CDs, but this was an album I had to own. It is beautiful and grand and dramatic in equal measure. The vocals contrast with the climactic sense of the songs in such a way that the effect is almost ethereal. The tracks sound best when played in sequence, as this brings out some of the more delicate refrains and really allows the mood to build. I could listen to this album all day long. (It does make you feel excessively dramatic on the bus though!)

I first heard the music of Woodkid from run boy run on the O2 sporting moments advert. I have not been disappointed with the other songs on this album. Woodkid is lyrics are pure poetry! I'm not going to attempt to provided a proper music review as you can find this on specialist websites, where they will all give this 4/5 stars. Not your run of the mill stuff but brilliant enough to have you listening over and over again

This album really is fantastic. I had this pre ordered and I am still not bored of listening to this album. The songs are well written and at times very powerful, a really great album, that can make my day feel not so awful! Especially good for driving to and from work, watch that speedo tho!

Obviously tracks such as Iron, Run Boy Run and I Love You are well known (I didn't realise this!) but other tracks such as Conquest of Spaces and Stabat Master really are great. If you like music with great bass, tone, vocals and style that is "just right" then woodkid is something you should try.

I have even given this album to my mum and she loves it, it has something for everyone one, So give it a go!

Woodkid had me at the very first time I heard "Iron", and he kept blowing my mind with "Run Boy, Run" and "I love you". So I had high expectations for this album.

With the Golden Age, I feel like it should not be something to enjoy as a whole, but rather selective listening to the separate tracks since they are so different. Woodkid is one of the most brilliant artists today and he puts so much effort and work into every little detail, which is something I love about the guy.

For people who love music as an art and not just as background noise while working out or cleaning around the house - this is an absolute must!
