CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

La Petite Mort is a quality release and a welcome return for a band that refuses to sit down.

The album’s probably better than expected, so it’s somewhat of a disappointment that the band haven’t been encouraged to recreate their main strength, the brilliant electricity generated by pulsating live shows as their music builds into euphoric peaks; too often, the production strips away the potential majesty.

La Petite Mort may not be a groundbreaker, but it's definitely a treat.

21st century James has had its share of fresh ideas. They found new ways to get to the drama and even paused along the way for some subtlety. You won’t find such traits on La Petite Mort. And although it resulted in a good James album, something tells me that they probably won’t be able to get away with this again.

There are a few fillers, but strongs tracks like 'Moving On' and 'All I'm Saying' more than make up for them'. I'd say that this is the first James album that really showcases Mark Hunter's keyboard/synth wizardry.

Not as strong as death - its main theme - but as weak as a broken window.
