"It would be remiss to pretend that EE had absolutely nothing in common with Battles, but they’ve still been one of the most promising exponents of geometrical electro-rock in France over the last few years, alone and as members of the thrilling "La Colonie de Vacances" along with Papier Tigre, Pneu and Marvin. What they needed was a recording to match their bracing (and severe chicken neck-inducing) live performances, and that’s pretty much what we have here. Opener ‘Obs 7’ was described to me by a passing colleague as sounding like a malfunctioning New York elevator. The description was intended disparagingly but actually does some kind of justice to the cheek-flappingly intense upward motion of the track’s latter stages. If III doesn’t quite retain the momentum of ‘Obs 7’ and the demented gamelan workout of ‘Pointe Noire’ throughout it’s only because those two make for such a knockout start." The Qietus
