Between Anti-Terror and Temoinage, which album did you enjoy more? For me, it's a hard choice!

I think Anti Terro even tought I skip alot of songs. I see Anti Terro as two different albums in one (a mini- jb solo album and a group album united).

It would have been if there a ACMCO-referendum in 2006 to see on what place Temoignage would end along with the albums Droit Chemin, Temps d'Amour & Faux Mutu Moko Boye, the same for 2005 and 2007.

The album was a huge succes in 2006. But it looks like everybody forgot about this album.


I don't know why people have this perception that Temoignage wasn't a good slbum, it was an excellent Album, it is the reason why I have started to love Congolese music.
Ça Sonne is a stunning generique and you can see Kapaya's creative juice the Album was so much different from the rest of the generique. And I think comparing Kibuisa and Temoignage is useless. Because Bill left after A La Queue Leu Leu, so even though Alerte Generale,and Ça Sonne are GREAT ALBUMS. People will always think that Kibuisa and A La Queue Leu Leu are better then Alerte and Temoignage

Its normal that people compare Temoingnage to Kibuisa Mpimpa. Because Temoignange was Werrason's second solo album after Kibuisa Mpimpa.

It was not because of Bill's departure that people don't like Temoignage, it was because of its arrangements. Don't forget that Kibuisa Mpimpa was arranged by Philipe Guez, Al Nzimbi and Djudjuchet Luvengoka. Listen to the arrangements of Tave, Prince Au Congo, Le Grand Monsieur, Destin Ya Moto, Obiang and compare it to those of Temoignange. Also the level of the songs on Temoingnage aren't the same like on Kibuisa Mpimpa. I think they made the mistake to record the album live. On Temoingnage they had Sec Bidens as arranger who also a top arranger like Maika Munan, Al Nzimbi, Souzy Kaseya, Philpe Guez, Djudjuchet, Michel Lorentz, etc. But it looks like Maison Mere didn't took the time to record the album and that they hadn't alot of motivation like on Alerte Generale which I can understand, because they hadn't a real competitor anymore. They already defeated JB Mpiana, Les Marquis didn't exist anymore and people already accepted the new squad with Alerte Generale. So they didn't had to prove themselves anymore.

Temoignage is ok as album, but it need alot of concentration, motivation and enegry to record a live-album. Listen to Sanction of Academia & Titanic of Wenge BCBG.

The comparison of this album to Titanic and Sanction is unfair. The circumstances that lead to those albums being made are vastly different. Academia had to prove themselves outside of being Koffi's understudy, while JB Mpiana was riding the massive success of Feux De l'Amour and Temoinage felt more like a victory lap after Alerte Generale confirmed the new line-up of Masion Mere.
