5.0 out of 5 stars Enchantingly French..., 26 Oct. 2002
By 
This review is from: Premiers Symptomes (Audio CD)
This is an acutely well composed, calculated and articulated collection of off-hand singles, coined idly by Parisian duo Dunckel and Godin aka Air over a period of time subsuming Moon Safari.
As a measurement of this albums sheer credibility, I must stress Premiers Symptomes distracted a set musical persona, it channeled musical my fancies sharply and ushered me menacingly towards foreign plains inhabited by alien electronic sounds.
During consumption, you experience a powerful sensation of Gallic charm; it conjures silent cinematic street shots of retrospective Paris, abstractly capturing the essence of urban France. It is clean-cut and delicate, synonymous to their attire and fetish for health respectively. It evokes such a vivid atmosphere that it could easily be thriving asset to any film based within the borders of France.
Each of the seven singles was engineered without reference to a planned album, but by awesome feat they seem to flow into one another immaculately, like carved stones fitting to form the solid sequence of a Roman arch, each depending on its neighbor for support. With the smallest of alterations to one of the singles, the momentum of the album would be foiled. Alas, none of the singles suffer a loss of individual quality at the expense of their collective momentum.
Each layer, melody, phase and minor embellishment is crafted scrupulously, only to be arranged sumptuously to create a frankly, highly infectious product, like carefully formulated tones skillfully slung over a canvas.
This is a highly sophisticated performance - the drama of the seven scenes inducing a sustained stupor in its audile prey � and an audible observance of French culture
This is as quintessentially French as it is destined to a place in your CD collection. I feel a responsibility to urge anyone with the slightest morsel of self-proclaimed musical taste to invest shrewdly in this keyboard-sweet Tour de France.
