5.0 out of 5 stars Cinematic Dub, 19 Sep 2009
This review is from: Meta Meta (Audio CD)
Came across this French combo when a friend recommended them. Sadly little known in this country, they specialise in the epic and the dubby.
Everything they do seems to be on a grand scale. Don't get me wrong, there is no pomp here, but there is a dark grandeur to many of the pieces.

The opener Minotites uses an operatic singer over a grungy backing...reverb setting for the drums seems set to star cavern...big sound!
Think Massive Attack meets Mungos HiFi or Cinematic Orchestra and you are in the right ball park. Production values are excellent...although my impression of them on the album is quite electronic based, you tube footage shows them as a proper functioning band...and they seem VERY tight live. Musically, the content is excellent with real structural strengths that reward repeated listens.

The use of an extended sample from Blade Runner on Faux Semblant was at first pretty cool, but on fourth or fifth listens it started to irritate. Otherwise it's a real treat of an album.

I urge you to instant classic.
