"Lost Love Cries", a song by Karine Charff, is given an electronica twist by Chris Smith under the name of Blaubac. Guitar riff grooves return with "Loveflower", given a second airing in this collection in remastered form, a mix by Amp Studio. Donald Ross Skinner supplies the mix of "Just Get it", an edgy stand-off with guitar washes and a lonesome harmonica haunted by Karine's vocals. "D'espoir De Mourir" is lo-fi French minimal techno in a gothic sea, mixed by former Amp cohort Olivier Gauthier. "Waiting Room Blues", a slice of quirky French techno blues, finds a home here. "Push N' Hold" is a mix by Amp Studio, followed by the ambient electronica of "When & Where", a mix by Yellow6.
