For his fifth album, French singer-songwriter Alexandre Varlet has put away the irony and mischievousness that were previously part of his repertoire. However, he still explores both emotions and torment with very personal lyrics.
Musically, Alexandre tends toward greater solemnity and asceticism than in the past. Although this album is a dark jewel, you get the impression that light is waiting to burst through it.
It seems that Varlet wants to refine his compositions to bring out the essential.
The LP comes in a gatefold sleeve with a lyric sheet. The CD is a digipack.
