It's a Whimsical Afterlife is a real surprise this year, because finally Avenade remains an illustrious stranger as a musician for the moment (he is a music reviewer like us) but I think this album has a good chance to do him the most good. Finally, even if he wouldn't be able to become known, he left his mark on my mind with a stratospheric Noise Rock album. I have never listened to these previous projects, but the level of this one is so strong that there is no particular need for a comparison. In an atmosphere that is sometimes oppressive, sometimes tormented, Avenade offers us all its soul, we can feel all the energy, all the anger, all the darkness, and often things that we shouldn't hear. I think that the success of this work also depends on the fact that it alternates in an extreme way between more "hardcore" and other melodic moments, which creates an improbably remarkable fusion. It's a long album on paper, but it has so much to say that it deserves to be, although I might have lightened up towards the end by removing Over The Windbreak/Bloom which is the only avoidable track here because it's maybe too ambitious, not convincing enough. He doesn't invent anything, but everything is perfectly mastered, sometimes you don't even have the impression of a past from one music to another, it's a whole, it's a purification
