Fine Indie Pop song, I like the kind of music, but it sometimes just feels like thirteen in a dozen to me

67. Flobots - Handlebars - 4 This song just doesn't do it for me, the lyrics, the instrumentation (especially the viola pizzicato). It does pick up a bit in the end, and the trumpet solo is very cool. But on the whole I think it sounds a bit bland at first, and very noisy, almost metal, at the end. ...

The French Wikipedia declares that "Madame" was released a first time in 1975, and re-recorded in 1981 for the album from that year. "Le Rital" was from 1983, and is indeed his biggest hit here in francophone countries. I'm not a specialist, since I don't like Claude Barzotti and neither do French ...
