Tout était parfait, le temps de livraison respecté, le boîtier et le cd étaient en parfait état. Il ne m'est arrivé qu'une seule fois d'avoir un cd abîmé de ce vendeur.

After their sublime, yet more low-key first album, Hooverphonic get a new singer, with a voice just as entrancing in a different way, and explore a more trip-pop environment, while not losing any appeal or orginality.
There are similarities in the songs, but they set different moods, and feature futuristic, perceptive lyrics that add to the intrigue of the music.
While each song is memorable, some of the highlights to me include "Club Montepulciano", a groovy, hypnotic tune featuring Geikes soaring, honey-sweet vocals, "Electro Shock Faders", a funky song sung by one of the band's male members, and "Tuna", a sort of mournfully hopeful ode to the future's promises.
I could mention many other songs, but this is an outstanding collection of quality music from a band that already started on a gorgeous note.
one of the 90s' best, in my opinion.

You may think of a Belgian waffle. Everything on it. No empty places. Or what about Gabba Hardcore? Sort of heavy metal techno for football hooligans. People who aren't into Burzum must have to do something with their time when they are not burning churches or watching X-Files. Hooverphonic are like none of the above. They have been slowly informed by the jungle virus. The massive beats are there, but what else can you do for me, mister? I have been playing "Eden" and "Out of Tune" the moonless nights that I have been DJing lately, and all the young girls come up to me afterwards and ask, "Who was that?" I like the way Hooverphonic uses both male and female vocals on different songs. Geike Arnaert is a good singer in the Cocteau Twins/Bjork tradition, but many of their lyrics seem to make little sense, as if they are struggling with the English language. People like myself and Will Self have to keep the language pure and we see ourselves as custodians of English. Sometimes the cuteness of an accent wears off. The mastermind of Hooverphonic, Alex Callier, is a fine and talented songwriter. The disturbing cover of the old Kinks song "This Strange Effect" is wonderfully sad. I hope to hear more of Hooverphonic in the future and congradulate them on the new direction. Need a haircut? Ask Nelson.

I bought this album based on some back-of-the-head idea that it got good reviews, and it just blew me away.
Hooverphonic uses just enough synth and computerized sounds to give this album a sleek, refined sound that transcends most modern music, but the listener never feels lost.
"Battersea" explodes with such a rush of energy, it feels like being lifted off the ground and set into flight. The first track also introduces you to Geike's sweet voice, with an intangible quality that leaves me curious and listening to this album more and more. Following tracks like "One Way Ride" and "Club Montepulciano" flow effortlessly and beautifully.
Two more popular songs are "Eden", with its relaxed almost chill-out vibe, and "Magenta", a creative masterpiece. Note how the backup vocals on the chorus jump to the left speaker for "Look left" and right speaker for "Look right" - a nice little detail.
My two favorites on this disc are "Electro Shock Faders" - short, sweet, and an incredible outro that again is reminiscent of flying - and "Lung". The intro notes sound as though they'll never fit in, but halfway through the song you remember that they're still playing, and are amazed at how smooth the transition was.
I believe BWPM is the band's best work, and recommend it to any avid music fan with a little bit of a taste for adventure.
