CRITIC REVIEWS

The Line of Best Fit
You’re left with the sensation that this is a representation not just of the band’s musical tastes, but the band as an entity. A band with the confidence to step out naked.

DIY
L’Impératrice might be a band stuck between eras, but it’s their unnerving awareness and disguised social commentary that keeps ‘Tako Tsubo’ very much within the moment.

Spectrum Culture
For an album named after extreme emotional distress, there’s a lack of urgency here, and last year was anything but a case against urgency.

While this is a cute and fun french disco record, it's really nothing more than that. It feels a bit too simplistic at times but the production and vocals are both very smooth and groovy. I'm a sucker for dance music so I still really enjoy this.

Favorite tracks: Anomalie bleue, Off to the Side, Peur des Filles, Souffle au coeur, Voodoo?, Tombée our la scéne
Least favorite: Digital Sunset

Sometimes all you need is french nu-disco. This album can certainly sate that hunger, but won't be enough to fill your stomach.
