"The translucent red record opens with "Le Malade Roi." As soon as the needle touches this 7" sublime synthlines are offered from the speakers. Vocals are contributed by Xavier Paradis, vocals that blend seamlessly with the crisp beats and a solid tempo to produce a track that would warm any club floor. "Le Malade Roi" is a piece that captures the addictive analog sound of quality New Wave, blending some heartbreak lyrics with some pure electro sound. Synthesizers flow onto the flipside with "Elan." A clean and warm drumulator style backing props up some amazing analogue work before vocal slide in. Once more, that addictive and magnetic aspect is there as choice melodies are combined with deep lyrics. The track comes to a close with a fantastic, energy filled synthesizer solo; bringing this lovely New Wave snippet to a close. There can be only one complaint with Arnaud Lazlauds release, it is too short. Two tracks is a tease. These pieces are what New Wave was, and what it can still be; music that calls the listener back again and again. Two tracks are not enough, and more is needed. But, this is hardly an issue to gripe about. This is the height of recommendation and endorsement.... Hardy congratulations to artist and label are deserved, but such quality must be maintained and this can be easier said than done." - Igloo Magazine. Limited edition in "taped bandage" cover.
