"jamais je ne pleure et jamais je ne ris"

EBM fans talk a good game about how lyrics "just sound better" in German, but this might be a case in which the genre's Belgian roots pay off in spades: Modern Cubism is an electronic project whose selling point is nothing less than Jean-Luc De Meyer singing the poetry of French symbolist, critic, noted alcoholic and all-around decadent bad-ass, Charles Baudelaire. The music is pleasant, if not earth-shattering (nice analog feel, kinda reminiscent of the various mellow post-Battery projects as well as C-Tec), but as a massive fan of Baudelaire, hearing De Meyer wrap his trademark guttural voice around so many of his poems is a treat.
