CD Review:
"We had almost finished mourning The Hoodoomen who hung up their amps a long time ago. What a pleasure to find that today the Normand combo considered one of the most promising of the second millennium has crossed into the twenty-first century ... After touring in the biggest festivals in France, Europe and Canada, having been Group of the Year in 2002, and holding The Album of the Year in 2003, Pascal Fouquet on guitar, Eric Lebeau on bass and Francis Marie on drums return this time accompanied by singer, Jennifer Milligan aka Jenny Lee, an unlikely cross between Janis Joplin and Elvis Presley who can’t be a better blend with the atmosphere of postwar Rhythm & Blues and Jazz from which the combo has evolved. Three originals and four covers, they really didn’t need more to create a solid foundation with "Pretty Gritty City"!

Conceived as a true war machine capable of overturning anything in its path, as peacefully as it is, the rhythm section is undeniably The Hoodoomen’s weight and the lifeblood of the combo ... But if we add to it the exceptionally graceful and virtuosic guitar of Pascal Fouquet, one directly penetrates the fourth dimension that is then magnified by a voice placed on an unclear crossroad between a crooner and a diva! The mass could be said, and more over said well, but not without counting their friends, the Meat Mecs who make up the chorus, Pôôw Fouquet on guitar on "How Can I Win Your Love", the immeasurable Drew Davies on sax and occasionally vocals, and with the equally amazing Thomas Troussier who throws down more than hot air with harmonica on "Cool Trap" and "Mozelle". The compositions by Jenny Lee & Pascal Fouquet are in league with the covers and after a short half hour sealed the comback of The Hoodoomen in their 2012 version, we can only cross our fingers to quickly see them live, on the stage where the group is even more convincing, and yet the bar was raised, again, very high in the studio ... Sacred group!" - Fred Delforge, Zicazic (Mar 15, 2012) Translated by Jen Milligan
