4 stars This the latest UZ studio album, is a "picture-book" of the vast fields UZ has dwelled through the years. A perfect first album for new-commers, considering, the level of performance and composition, these guys have scaled. Not all is "dark" as one can easily pre-assume. Sometimes, since "The Hard Quest" they even sound playful. This was obviously done by will, and self-musical development. I mean, who wants to do a single thing forever, more when you do it for no monetary-attachments. So "Clivages" travels with new compositions, through their discoveries, encounters and past-world. The "programme" itself is well balanced, so at the end, you will experience different after-tastes, not only one. So, by now, as self-demanding performers, they travel routes, not traveled in the past, but their "obscure" upbringing, will show anywhere they appear, but never to spoil the whole body of work, or worst to spoil the fun. For people who already are related to the band, there are some referential works mentionings "Le Faulx" ,as brushtrokes of "darker-days", opposite to more invinting and sun-lighted structures. Therefore, yes sometimes the "children of the night" show up in broad day-light and have tons of fun, but beware of the night, as always, you never know what can really happen. ****4.5 PA stars.
