Messe Pour Le Temps Present Pierre Henry Philips 836.893, 1965
Messe Pour Le Temps Present album cover

One from the oddball vault of groovy soundtracks. You'd pass on this if you just read the cover - it's a French ballet score from 1965. But see the back cover, with a photo of electronic genius Pierre Henry with a huge, early synth, and your pulse would start to race. Check the track listing and you'd be reaching for the cash. 'Psyche Jerk', 'Rock electronique', 'Jericho Jerk' - oh yes, it's a beat-heavy Moog masterpiece. Crazy bell sounds, electric piano, choppy overdriven guitar, clean jazzy guitar, wicked jazz-based drumming, all overlaid with bizarre Moog-syle sounds. Superb and highly recommended. To our ears, we think The Police's Andy Summers stole his guitar sound (and some of the chord progressions) from this album.

Overall Rating: 4
