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

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.

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

Eh same old songs lol. They have to be tired of performing the same stuff over and over again.

Its decent although it used some of the same stuff from nyataquance. Is this generique going to be a part of an upcoming album or something?

I'll never forgive fally for giving us an inferior version of the ecole generique after hearing the vastly superior beta version with alvarito solo. It still hurts till this day.

Please happen! No more cancellations!

Yeah I ordered an album a few months ago. It took about a month before I finally got it

What happened to Lobeso?

I miss these old fally concerts where he would perform some strong sebene. I was usually okay with him performing rhumba for mostly the whole concert, because in few times when he would perform sebene, it was fire and on point. Nowadays it's so soft and lackluster. I'm not sure if its because of Felly Tyson or something.

The thing is, is that they keep performing the same old songs over and over again. They barely perform any of their newer stuff.

Most of WMM’s latest catalogue is pretty forgetful to be honest. Some good songs here and there

Yeah you're right about that. Smh very frustrating to say the least.

Yall want me to do a retrospective album review on Temoinage? I got some pretty cool commentary regarding the album

My favorite tracks on here remains Conscience Bela, perhaps Werrason best composed rhumba since
Ntima Mbote or Blandine.

Yeah please that would be dope!

Hopefully we get those Europe concerts back soon so they could have those high quality edited concerts again.
