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.

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!)

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 first heard Woodkid when BBC news used 'Run Boy Run' for a sports item - so I am a little late to the fray.

On the strength of this, I bought the album. From beginning to end, we are treated to his distinctive and rather beautiful vocal, atmospheric songs and thoughtful and often poetic lyrics.

I cannot rate this album enough. I haven't heard anything this good in ages.

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

What an excellent album, I didn't even know this guy existed until I heard his music in the 100 on E4, some have said his voice takes a little getting used too but I think it is perfect for the type of music he is performing. If anyone has any doubts about buying the album I suggest you listen to Iron; Run Boy Run; the Golden Age and Stabat Mater, absolutely brilliant and so cleverly done, this guy is a musical genius.

An absolutely mesmerising album. Started off liking two songs (which I loved on first listen, around 5 years ago) but recently listened to the title track for the first time and it was this that convinced me to buy the album. It's an intense piece of musical artwork, which some pretty solemn sounds (Where I Live) but balanced with uplifting moments of both happiness (The Great Escape) and determination (many, but Stabet Mater stands out the most). Enjoy it deeply and let it grow on you until there are no songs left that you feel indifferent towards.
