Boomkat Product Review:
*The long lost second album from the enigmatic Lewis Baloue, first time available on CD and newly re-mastered* It’s taken a while for copies of this to filter through since Light In The Attic finally managed to track down the enigmatic producer, but boy what a treat ‘Romantic Times’ is. Even harder to categorise than ‘L’Amour’, this mythical second album (well, no one really knew of its existence until a couple of months back) is a total anomaly - a highly personal, eccentric album that oozes a singular musical vision. It’s true that Lewis’ croning has an almost comic effect to it - overly emotional and downright weird at some points, but make no mistake - this is no mere novelty. The production here is genuinely, brilliantly perplexing - we’re reminded of everything from the oft-mentioned Lynch/Badalementi references, but also Vangelis and Leyland Kirby - ‘it’s a new day’ really could have been recorded at any point in the last 50 years, it sounds so completely out of place and out of time. In any case, it would seem that ‘Romantic Times’ wasn’t really meant for wider public consumption, a sketchbook of ideas that probably makes little sense to anyone but its author, and yet we guarantee you’ll feel enriched for spending some time in its company.
