"An album as sophisticated as it is perfectionist in its production."
"Dark Lightning poses at the beginning of the disc its title ends credits, vibrating under the litany of the choruses and the soprano. Necessarily reductive, these two examples are in the image of the rest of the disc which acts under the surface, far from the crest of the foam, in the density of the inevitable future decisions."
