A huge, unabashedly modern electronic crunch that dominated their previous record, Nuit Blanchewas replaced by a cold, bone-dry synthetic sheen reminiscent of early-'80s new romantic bands, and the guitars turned decidedly post-punk, too. The resulting record, in a rather hilarious turn of events, often sounds like a more outgoing and hedonistic let alone female-fronted version of the Another Blues - Various - Pop Nytt - Grand Prix Extra Seconds -era Cure.
There's even a direct reference, the melancholy "Petit Putain," which sounds almost exactly like "A Forest" -- which should not by all accounts work but somehow does. Even the most energetic tracks, like the engagingly rocking opener "Hot Shot" or the mischievous one-two of "Non-Stop -- Vive Fosset" and "Tu Connais la Derniere," are played as if the band deliberately tries to hold back a bit.
