TOP 100 REVIEWERon 19 May 2014
Yann Tiersen doesn't sound like anyone else. He has cornered the market in insistent, throbbing mood music that if you listen to it long enough reveals its melodies and nuances slowly but very rewardingly. A rather poor analogy would be if you imagine a beautifully wrapped Christmas present that once opened just has an old pair of socks. This isn't like that. On initial listen you may find much of this discordant and wandering, ie wrapped in plain brown paper, but once you open it, and the melodies sing and rush through your brain - you realise you've unwrapped a gem! (Sorry I've just re-read that bit and hope it makes sense)
Nevertheless, those familiar with Tiersen's work will be re-assured that the childrens' glockenspiel effects, wispy soundscapes, ethereal choruses and quite frankly scary riffing are all present and correct (often on the same song eg Ar Mein Behan) and once again we have an album that stands out from the crowd.

An interesting piece of music to get into. Best listened to in it's entirerity, as like a score, it follows through a story from start to finish, the final track is excellent. On the second listen it made more sense. I look forward to seeing how it sounds next time.
