Le Corps De Mon Ennemi Francis Lai WIP 863 005, 1975
Le Corps De Mon Ennemi album cover

From a mid-70s Belmondo movie, this French score sees Francis Lai move away from his traditional lush arrangements into a harder, more guitar-lead environment. A tough action movie calls for tough sounds, and this album is no exception. The music is as dark as the album sleeve, featuring menacing brass, guitar and analogue synth. Some of the music has a progressive rock influence and even a slight middle eastern feel in places. There are several outstanding funk numbers, best of which is 'Magic's Power', an excellent guitar feature with a wicked prog-Moroccan riff and great horns. Also check Jack Pot. Recorded at the legendary Studios Davout, source of many killer French funk records... must be something in the air...

Overall Rating: 4
