Album Review
Reviewed 2011-09-27 
French-infused Pop album, creation of Montreal-based Olivier Alary, a collaborator of Bjork and a composer of movie scores. Sophisticated orchestration mixing acoustic and electronic instruments. Contemplative music playing with patterns, layers, echoes. Full, lush sound. Many directions in each son. In Alary's words, the music suggests "the confusion of real memories and fictional ones". - Ruben
