I really liked The Trip but this one seems to have even more depth and staying power for some reason. It feels like Laetitia shows us more what she's capable of here.

^On the basis of a couple of listens I'd agree strongly with this. The 'staying power' bit might be down to more conventional song structures (the Monade stuff, much as I like a lot of it, could get quite abstract) and the fact that she can play the guitar "properly" now. But that's not meant as a criticism. This certainly feels to me like her strongest and most coherent statement outside of Stereolab to date. It's a record I'm likely to revisit a lot.
