It's near impossible to not describe the activities in Paris in the mid-to-late 1990s as a scene. True, many of the bands that made the late 90s so musically refreshing are not connected. But the sheer numbers made the disparate wings seem like one block. Kid Loco, however, vehemently maintains his independence from, and indeed actually dislikes, many of his musical compatriots. That one-man mission ethic can be heard throughout A Grand Love Story, a record as opulent as an orchard, with a sound that is dance-like, but couldn't be further removed from the more familiar Daft Punk sound. A chill-out mood record of some beauty, particularly "A Grand Love Theme" and "Love Me Sweet" (featuring vocals from The Pastel's singer Katrina), it sits apart from the other French albums of the era by the weight of its romantic ambitions. --Charlie Porter

Unfortunately this first album has not since been equalled by Kid Loco, both his DJ kicks album and his Jesus life 12" album failed to hit the spot. But that shows just how exceptional this release is.
Remember, if you buy this album be sure to get the one with 2 CDs (it should be the same price as the 1 CD version), CD 2 has some more surprises up it's sleeve, particularly track four 'The wrong number' which for me demonstrates the rare funky originality of this musician. Seven years is a long time...
From start to finish it really does 'ooze' power, sex appeal, and is generally very infectious. It's very chilled out, but not to the point where it's dull - you could listen to it anywhere and in any frame of mind.
I would find it very hard to sit down and talk about each track -they're so totally different, but all I can do is to urge you buy this - it will be one of the best music purchases you make.
Every one a winner!
