Human After All
Label: Parlophone (France)
Four years on from Discovery, the French duo releases its third album sounding darker and grittier than before, as if AC/DC and Black Sabbath have been let loose on a bank of sequencers. Still fabulously danceable, the music is less pop and more vital -- the beats attack harder this time. Distinctly more punk than daft, they look like robots, but rock like humans.
