    That these tunes are complemented by some of the sexiest pop cooked up yet this year only adds to the heated vibe.

    It is certainly their most well-rounded and diverse, one that adds some pop-machine savvy without losing any of the insouciant charm they've had to spare in the past.

    Complètement Fou is filled to the brim with catchy electro-pop tracks about shaking your hips, going crazy and road trips.

    Lyrically, Complètement Fou--Completely Crazy--remains in the Frenchies' native tongue, but this third offering's primary language is pop.

Completement Fou shows a real growth of the group in the search of a "madness" that I wouldn't call complete as the title of the album, but creative and artistically fresh. The first two songs are the most superficial but also the most catchy. The musical asymmetry of the piano notes is very intelligent and it induces the mixing of a rhythm in 3/4 even when it is actually in 4/4.
    The rest of the album is very sweet and conceptually eclectic with some tracks reminding of "Me" by Dev or "Heroine" by Little Boots, in a soft/electro developed to perfection that I'd call almost environmental.
    Interesting the two stylistic experiments used to "Nuit De Baise" (personally I liked most the first part than the second).
    The best and truly 'fou' track is the last, "Bouquet Final", where an outburst of uncontrollable emotions creates something touching and bubbly. One of the best songs I ever heard.

    Seductive, colorful, with a hint of sadness. One of the best synthpop albums of 2014.

If you're not familiar to the French language, you will move to the addicting, sexy beat. If you are, you will then understand why Complètement Fou is earned its title. Marveilleux! Expand
