I enjoyed this album. Cocorosie is an acquired taste and this latest album is a bit experimental, even for them. There were a couple songs that I would describe as hit or miss, but there were just as many musical passages that gave me a shiver of delight, and several tracks I liked instantly. Not as good as Noah's Ark, but definitely worth purchasing. The album is a very cool translucent blue, the sleeve art laughably horrible (on purpose, I hope)!

This was a 3TripleR, a Melbourne (Aust) Community radio station, album of the week, where they mostly played The Moon asked The Crow.
I've had this over a year now and not sick of it yet.
Definitely not mainstream, but very accessible if you like quirky vocals and some darkish themes. Some beautiful lyrics, and I like the mix of quieter and/or more introspective songs with the more rockin tracks.
