Operation of the Sun - Désir Parabolique
Electro 'Désir Parabolique' is the third album release from French Operation of the Sun and my first encounter with this artist. I feel quite bad; I had this release on my todo-list forever now. I simply have been pushing it forward and I guess that's not the best judgment to begin with. However, there's some goodies to be found here, even though it is spread a bit too thin.

Highlights of the album is the melody in "Hail Poppy Hans", the folkish beat in "Lai De Lionne", and the hate/love relation I have to the super cute warbling in "Uchronia X" (get seriously stuck), the electro dance beats in "Electropoots (Sans Les Mains)",

However, the album is a bit all over the place. It's varied, but it might be a bit too varied. Operation of the Sun has managed to create an own sense of style and sound and even though I might not agree with every journey taken, I must respect that.

I would recommend stop using the vocoder and work some extra with the often dark, gothic way of singing. It's not bad, but it can come off as a bit plain sometimes.

'Désir Parabolique' is a perfect venture if you want to try out something that is a bit different, and for some of you it might be worth it, however, I can't promise you that each and every single one of you will like this.

The track I will remember from this is "Uchronia X", and after you hear it, I'm quite sure you, just like me, will go around singing La-la, La-la-la-la-la, la-la.
