    Really heavy and melodic, with lyrics that really mean something and are expressed in a right way, it's a record that everyone can understand in one or another way.

    The future of Metal is French?!? Astonishing but true! Raw, unpretentious, technically brilliant and just damn good. Buy the special edition - the DVD is worth the money on its own.

    Gojira, with its unique style of pounding metal coated with a layer of melancholic melody, has produced another incredible album. It's beyond doubt their most varied album. In addition, it is definitely the best live band I've seen this year, absolutely massive sound !

    If you like raw, emotional and technical metal, it does not come close to as good as this. I can't stop listening to it. I can imagine it would be even more impressive live...

    Inventive and technical, it's death metal with a brain. [Jul 2012, p.102]

    An utterly exhausting but consistently thrilling listen, L'Enfant Sauvage is arguably a career best which suggests Gojira have found their spiritual home.

    L'Enfant Sauvage... is the merde.
