Like any good French meal, Chateau Flight's second album boasts a surfeit of courses, but, fortunately, it doesn't leave you feeling overstuffed. We're treated to trim, Prince-inspired funk ("Ongaku"), modern chanson ("Les Antipodes"), bleepy soul for OutKast fans ("1973") and dubby Krautrock detours ("Autotrak 1" and "Autotrak 2"). Years after the LP's release, the trance-infused "Cosmic Race" sounds as electrifying as ever. Once you've heard that pitch-bent lead, you won't soon forget it.
