"Second album of the Australians of The Faim, "Talk Talk" has a rather radiant pop-rock sound but lacks somewhat of originality."

After a first pop-rock album noticed in 2019 ("State Of Mind"), the Australians of The Faim come back in this summer 2022 to share their new album with the very evocative name of "Talk Talk".

This "Talk Talk" is not very talkative nor demonstrative and goes to the essential. A title like 'The Hills' reveals in a very short time its assets with its anthological chorus and its small discrete guitar solo. The Faim tries with a certain success to vary the pleasures with more acoustic tracks (the successful 'The Alchemist' carried by its feminine melody), electro ('Me Because Of You'), even rock ('Ease My Mind', 'Flowers'). On several occasions, a violin is heard discreetly.

Unfortunately, the defects present on the first album were not really erased. As pleasant as it is, this album is not very original. Some tracks flirt with the clumsy homage (the introduction of 'Era' which reminds 'With Or Without You' to U2, some echoes of Bruno Mars, himself plagiarizing Police on 'You (And My Addiction)'). Others turn out to be a bit more lethargic ('Faith In Me'). All the songs follow each other in a limpid way but most of the time, it is very easy to anticipate the course of the tracks on all their length. The band would benefit from getting out of the pop-rock formats that are a bit too classic and digest once and for all their too visible influences.

Short (34 minutes), "Talk Talk" is a fresh and radiant album even if it doesn't escape a certain lack of depth and originality. However, some of its tracks should find their place on the air of a great number of pop-rock radio stations.

MYSTIC CIRCLE: Mystic Circle (2022)
BLACK METAL - Mystic Circle signs a superb opus of black metal with a melodic occult side worthy of the great hours of the genre in the late 90s.
BULLET RIDE: At The Gates Of Hell (2022)
THRASH - A small bomb of heavy thrash encrusted with death metal miasmas, "At The Gates Of Hell" shows with a bleeding skill the potential of a Bullet Ride which should not remain there!
