BIPPP

This compilation of early French Synth Wave weirdness is absolutely stunning. Outmoded synths and e-drums float some of the most infectious hooks to put a smile on your dour mug. This is Franco-Robot pop music of the highest caliber. Every track is simply delicious but standouts come from Act, Comix, Ruth, Visible, and the fantastic Mary Möör (need more Möör.) Seriously, if you can't get behind this you might as well report to your nearest Sleepshop at once.

C'est magnifique. It's like Klaus Nomi loses his voice and decides to do a bunch of Joy Division covers.

The synth on some of these tracks has that melancholy old Cure feel. Nice. Thanks.

This album is so good I have lost the urge to listen to anything else and am about to torch every other record I have in a giant bonfire dedicated to Mary Möör.
