4.0 out of 5 stars A Perfectly Singular Partnership
It's always good to have Ms Herve back in the spotlight.
A woman not afraid to plough her own singular furrow.

'Two' is a welcome return. 2008's 'Batbox' was a very
strong offering. A hard act to follow.

Her colaboration with The Hacker (aka Michel Amato) has
been rekindled after a long break. The creative partnership

This review is from: Two (Audio CD)
It's always good to have Ms Herve back in the spotlight.
A woman not afraid to plough her own singular furrow.

'Two' is a welcome return. 2008's 'Batbox' was a very
strong offering. A hard act to follow.

Her colaboration with The Hacker (aka Michel Amato) has
been rekindled after a long break. The creative partnership
evident in their early work together, notably 2001's 'First Album',
remains energetically alive.

'Two' is a much darker affair than 'Batbox' in many ways.
The sonic textures are heavier, more dense; the atmosphere
claustrophobic, forbidding even.
Listen to 'PPPO' for a vivid example. The trance-like rhythm,
the half-heard echoing vocal, the industrial hisses and scrapes.
A nightmarish landscape.

The album as a whole is more dance-oriented than much of their
previous work. 'Party In My Head' would be at home in almost any
late-night European club. I think the floor would be full.

'Emotional Interlude' is a scintillating slice of scatter-brained
techno. The staccato synth motif and enormous sub-sonic bass
support a musically impressive vocal from Ms Herve.
It is good to be reminded how well she can sing as well as delivering
the droll incantations to which we have become accustomed.
A stunning composition.

'Suspicious Minds' is a bit of a curiosity. I kept expecting
Mr Somerville and Mr Almond to suddenly chime in with
a shrill falsetto duet (They Don't!).
This well-intentioned rendition of an old warhorse misses
the target by a mile. A disastrously misjudged inclusion.

Thankfully things recover quickly with 'Electronic City'.
One of the finest compositions of her career.
It would not have sounded out of place in the
soundtrack to Blade Runner.
Intelligently constructed and consummately performed.

'Inutile Eternite' is another rich, eminently danceable, techno gem.
The vocal in her mother tongue is perfectly placed deep down in
the heart of this dark pulsing little masterpiece.
Turn up the volume and feel the floor and walls vibrate.

'Ray Ban' is kookie and cool in equal measure.
The Kittin magic hasn't gone away. Classy and chic !

It's good to hear Herve and Amato back together again.
The reunion has proved more than worthy.

A great partnership and a superb little album.

Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love what I've heard, 19 Jun 2009

This review is from: Two (Audio CD)
I've heard four or five tracks on myspace and they sound great to me.
Lush electronics and the kittin's vocals,the 80's influences are still there but it all sounds brilliantly solid and seductive.
