8/10 Brian Staff review, 29 April 2010
Luscious gender-bending sweeties Cocorosie land their fourth big record, now on PIAS after the Touch & Go empire folded their operations. The kooky kittenish vocals still snake & trill around your head like spangled birds high on nectar & fairydust (erm not PCP or owt, I don't think) The music ranges in style from Eastern tinged trip-hop to deranged music hall as performed by primary school starlets, then we're flowing into skittering ambient electronica before some madhead throws a ragtime piano into the mix!! And of course you get a tender piano led ballad with beautiful strings & a sensual downtempo number that recalls Nicolette's most fragile outings! You know these precociously talented ladies are always gonna have a surprise in store, a welcome sting in their tails. Amongst all the stargazing Bjork-isms, there's joy, drama & melancholy but mostly this album displays a true theatrical magic that wasn't quite so apparent on the last record I heard by them. A thoroughly engaging record!!
