People are rating this album lower because they don't understand French?! Read the lyrics in English and don't downgrade an album because of its foreign aspects. Besides that, this album sounds ahead of it's time, with some groovy instrumentals and amazing story-telling. You don't fully understand this album until you read the lyrics. It's a concept album. C'mon guys.

It's crazy how uninterestingly mediocre this album is. Nothing happens that really caught my attention... Serge's voice is monotonous, I can hardly tell those tracks apart musically and those lyrics are pretentious as fuck. I don't know but most of the attempts that this album did at interesting me didn't work at all.
