Generation Sans Futur is a lot less accessible than the previous two albums, a lot more erratic. So many great ideas in there but somehow most of the tracks are just not clicking for me yet. Gonna have to pick it up again another year.
But I love the long opening track, it's genius. The evocation of secrecy, madness and despair is fantastic. Wish I knew my instruments so I could describe one of the best parts.

There's a bonus track live version of one of their earlier pieces which is more blazing than the original.

Quick note that the big box set is going on Bandcamp:
And if you just want the music, it's $80 cheaper.

(Should add, that includes the music from the DVDs.)

Yes, I remember enjoying the bonus tracks as much as the album.

RIP Gérard Hourbette, age 64. No English-language obits as yet I don't think.

That's a shame. I guess that means the band is finished now?

From their Wikipedia page: "The band has announced Monique Hourbette-Vialadieu will replace him as artistic director of the studios." So maybe there'll still be a live version accompanying films, dance performances etc? Guess the music's all there and it's not like it requires especially distinctive playing styles.

Been wanting to hear Les Espaces Inquiets for years because I heard an amazing clip from "ceremonie" and it is an incredible track, easily the highlight of the album and I'd be surprised if they had many that are much better than this. The rest is good but I don't have much to say about it.

Zaboitzeff solo stuffhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHbDjt-o8ss
I haven't listened to enough of the band to know which parts are coming from who but I often suspect Zaboitzeff is responsible for a lot of my favorite parts.
