If "Der tod ist ein Treuer Kamerad" was to be compared to a sexual act then that act would be the one commonly known as 'rimming'. Daring, sensual, experimental, dark and definitely not to everyone's taste. Le Testament De La Lumiere, and trying saying that name after a night on the piss, I know absolutely nothing about. At least I'm being honest here. What I do know is that there isn't one bum, ho hum, track amongst the ten on this CD. Musically it's a very nice mixture of different ambient styles / ethnic qualities / quasi electronic weirdness that sits nicely on the palette. Ok maybe weirdness is too harsh a summation. Although not all gross out weird there are parts that will have you re-evaluating your thoughts on what constitutes the norm. Maybe that's what I like best about this CD. The fact that one minute you can let your mind wander and flow with the ambience and the next you need to seriously contemplate the sounds generated which challenge your perceptions. A thinking persons CD. Whatever next? Whether any of you will actually go out and buy this is very much dependant on your musical preferences and if you are willing to try out something that little bit different. A bit like your own sex life I suppose.
