2 stars A delightful and danceable electro-pop creation. To be honest, it's a big surprise this album is in Krautrock Library ... there is no multi- rhythmic element nor weird melodic complication like authentic Krautrock but catchy phrases drenched in monotonously percussive electronica. Christian's melody lines can be digested and absorbed in our brain just like a background music played in a supermarket store. The whole content of this album can be said as weak as an agenda by a Japanese politician, let me say. The first track "La Belle" or another incarnation of the first shot "Zita" is a good example.

Christian's simple, monotonous vibes sometimes reminds me of Neu!-ssence actually, and this tricky, trippy movement would be thought like Krautrock indeed, but even the titled track (and the longest one in this album) sounds simply like a electronic ballad with mellow atmosphere ... as if we would bend an ear to an easy-listening like Paul Mauriat (my favourite) or Franck Pourcel. In general, his 35 minute (upon Side A and B both) is kinda pop pleasure, without any innovative moment. Enjoyable, it's true, but cannot say this be Kraut-ish nor progressive. Never recommended as a progressive rock album (definitely there are pros and cons methinks) ... I love this stuff though.
