ANTENA/Rolling stone review

***A reissue of the best French-Belgian electro-samba record you've never heard. Originally released in 1982 as a five-song mini-LP on the elusive Brussels label Les Disques Du Crepuscule, the reissue features remastered versions of all the original tracks, along with the songs from the band's first EP, period B-sides, compilation tracks, and two unreleased gems. Beautifully packaged with notes and photos, and housed in a card slip cover. "Isabelle Powaga's sensual yet aloof voice makes "Bye Bye Papaye" sound like low-fi Sade, and the pulsating "Ingenuous" is a virtual blueprint for Stereolab's lithe pop."--Rolling Stone
