L'amour est sans pitié
To hear Jean Leloup on his second album is to witness a free-spirited rocker riffing on the beat of his own drum. The singer/guitarist sounds delightfully manic on the ska-punk romp "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," and the springy rocker "Barcelone" bounces along with carnivalesque glee. But on the head-bobbing title track—a cynical take on lost love and late nights—he sings just above a whisper. The connecting thread is his enthralling whimsy as he takes us to the dark corners of his playfully twisted, infinitely curious mind.
