I’ve posted a thread about this before, but damn Ya Fofo Le Collégien is a beast. I could listen to an entire générique with just his mi solo

When it comes to acoustics, Piwawa and Code Pin are the best sounding génériques all-time, imo. You hear every instrument crystal clear and perfectly tuned. Sometimes I forget Koffi had a 20 year run of great albums

(3:12-)


(5:58-)


Nothing like turning on a classic album after a long work day.

My favourite QL album. I bet because of some of the best rumbas in that album. Whenever i listen to this album especially while working this is always my playlist in no particular order of preference.

1. Inch allah
2. Tendrement
3. Biblia
4. Calvaire
5. Tous Pepele
6. Affaire D'etat

The other songs are matabisi for me.

Sanction had good quality but I disagree that it's up there with Affiare detat. Attentat might even have better quality than Sanction

Affaire D’edat the last good QL album... 2003 the last year of quality and fire albums

Sanction has really powerful sound, but the mixing could’ve been better refined in some areas. That being said the pure acoustics is what made the album legendary

Very true that it has powerful sound. You might be spot on with the mixing needing to be refined somewhat because thats where things kinda sound muffled to me. I might have to give sanction another listen though to see what you mean with the acoustics.

I also wonder if affaire d'etat would've sounded different it was released in 2002 like it was originally supposed to be.

Just the same, but without the 4-kora/tshibwabwa-animation. They had already finished recording the album in October 2002 and could have released it in december 2002 like it was planned. But because of Koffi winning 4 trophees at the Kora Awards in November 2002, they postponed the release of the album. So they added the 4-kora/tshibwabwa-animation in all sebenes and the two generics, added also some mabanga's and went to correct vocals until January 2003. Affaire d'Etat ended up by getting released in March 2003.

I always wonder what JB Mpiana was thinking about the tshibwabwa animation in Affaire d'Etat and the cri of Acide in Monde Arabe which was "pesa nga kombo, yo mopao mfumu ya ba hero, pesa nga trophee nayo" just to mock the way JB wasn't able to get Kora's and trying to find a way to get it.

How so? While the sound on Sanction is still mind-blowing to this day, I think you're referring to how each instrument and voice is mixed in terms of volume.

Thanks for clearing this up! I guess only Monde Arabe would've sounded different it was originally released in late 2003.
