Aksak Maboul - Onze Danses Pour Combattre La Migraine


  1. this is a really good album !

  2. I agree! I have posted a detailed review of this album on progarchives.

  3. this is splendid...the ideal music to travel across the Dalisque landscapes in the company of Magrittefigures and Picassolike animals...even the great Vincent is joining...thanks for sharing this gem

  4. if you like this maybe you should check this too ...I prefer Aksak Maboul (great name) but some of their songs are great too..greets

  5. and this band is also from Belgium and great too ...I'm also from Belgium...O no are we all that crazy over here... o well
    peace and greetings

  6. Very strange album, what it means: very good, very diferent, real music in opposition.

  7. excellent band , I think that they are the real scene of the music in many places around the world! for example Buy Viagra was one of my hobbies in the web, but now I use to get music! excellent album!
