Art Zoyd - La Chute De La Maison Usher (2008)

Art Zoyd's latest album is very avant garde ........ so much so though that i find it all really unmemorable to be honest, as much as say, there "Metropolis" was.

 This is yet another soundtrack album and i feel suffers ( as all there newer albums do, for me anyway ) of the absence of "Thierry Zaboitzeff" which only goes to show what a major part of this bands sound he was. Sadly this album just comes across to me as a meandering intense unfocused onslaught of FX which i don't think too many would actually give a second listen.

To sum up ...dissapointing. You'll do much better to check out any of "Thierry Zaboitzeffs" albums which are really outstanding and have more of the "Art Zoyd" sound than this album unfortunately only hints at.
