Genre/Influences: Electro-Pop.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: This year the French band Celluloide celebrates the twentieth anniversary of their debut album “Naïve Heart”. The album has been remastered and re-released on vinyl format. This EP features four alternative versions that were originally accomplished in 2003 to play live. They now have been released as a four-track EP.

Content: “A Lie”, “Wounds Of Love”, “Sixth Sense” and “Seven And Forever” all were noticeable tracks featured on the album and reworked as alternative edits. It remains in the purest tradition of the band, “Wounds Of Love” with a little Depeche Mode on top and a refreshed edit of “Seven And Forever”.

+ + + : This EP is a nice addition to the re-release of “Naïve Heart” and an opportunity to discover alternative edits of 4 prominent songs of the album. The tracks have been seriously reworked although they remain pretty easy to recognize. My favorite one is “Seven And Forever”.

– – – : By the single exception of “Seven And Forever” I definitely prefer the original edits.

Conclusion: Definitely a cool gift and extra for the fans of Celluloide; alluring and personal Electro-Pop made in France.

Best songs: “Seven And Forever – 6W7L Version”, “Wounds Of Love – 6W7L Version”.

Rate: 7.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
