A somewhat surprising album, not in the least because I stumbled on it by accident on Amazon UK, but also because it's a quite a departure from their previous albums. The music feels more natural and unprocessed, with uncharacteristic pieces like "Freedom of Light" which starts off simply with just a piano and vocals, building to a "We Are The World" type chorus. Occasionally there are glimpses of the band's old sound, especially on tracks like "L'homme de gierre" and "Organik Reel", but these are few and far between. Notably there are a lot more English tracks than usual for a Stone Age album too.

I suspect the change is going to polarise fans, but I'm digging it. Points off for using faux CD scratches on "Organik Reel" though (I thought the CD was actually scratched. :P

Totems d'Armorique comes in a digipack with, somewhat unusually, the CD holder affixed to one of the flaps instead of the back (the back holds a booklet with the lyrics in it).
