Our Rating:
This band are based in Paris although singer and rhythm guitarist Nick is originally from England and this is their second album. It was recorded in three one day sessions on reel-to-reel tape and to my ears this is a contemporary psych album, with touches of garage and indie as well. I like the distorted photograph artwork too.

'Changes' is a slow-burning starter that sounds a bit like Rats On Rafts. After that it goes all Echo & The Bunnymen. M'Not Everyone' is the lead single and we're in garage surf twang country. It sounds old. It sounds good. 'Jordi Taught Me' ambles along. The singer sounds rough as guts, even though he can sing, which deserves a small round of applause. The tape is pretty dusty, must be. 'Medication' would probably make a good single but it would have to be AM radio. 'The Circle Ain't Broken has just about enough country to be Johnny Cash. 'Control' and 'No More Tears' I like a lot as well. The first of those is simple and effective and carried along on a good melody and the second is similar in tone. It's a good mix of stuff on this album and that's down to the songs as much as the production.
