Listening to the first track one thing falls into place: LE KID is only absorbed in LES MARINELLIS and not blown away, as your mind will do. You’re right there where the great debut left you – deep in a sweeping frisky 60’s garage pop huddle. The second song “Le Ciel“ comes kinda like a lost gem from the DEMON'S CLAWS songbook – pure country psychedelica. Clappin’ hands and shamblin’ through “Deux Pour Trois” then inhalin’ the hazy musing of “Seul” these dudes will bring you to the light of “La Vie” at the end of side A.
The flip side features even five more super catchy tracks in the vein of JAQUES DUTRONC and DEMON'S CLAWS, but the last dance “Mes Yeux” is a goddamned HIT! All performed in a sloppy BLACK LIPS and LE CHELSEA BEAT parlance and at some moments the band reminds me a little of LOS GROWLERS with balls.
There is no doubt about the sound, solid recordings and excellent mastering ensure sweaty adventures in the haunts of your youth. Just taking a look at the cover and you get it: kaleidoscope of color, dark, purple, hazy, naked, sexy!!!

Review at Bananas #9 Zine:
The band dropped 'Le Kid' part of their name but as far as I know it's the same line-up. So does that mean those guys drastically changed their sound and need to take some distance with their previous record? Not really. The band still plays a mix of 60s pop and garage, all sung in French, well Canadian French that is, which gives it its distinctive flavor (well at least for a Frenchman such as myself). But they departed from the Dutronc-type compositions and have a more psych approach to their music. The guitars are fuzzier, the sound fuller and the voice is pushed back in the mix. The band even fools around with sitar sound on the excellent "Fils Du Roi".
The album feels more mature, with less songs about being young and fucking around, although the exuberance from the first album can be find on tracks such as "La Vie".
Also, if you're bummed that their 7" never came out, rest easy cuz both songs are featured on the album. The hard psych "Mes Yeux" and "Seul", a brooding mid-tempo song.
P.Trash handles the vinyl release while Burger puts out the tape.
