This offering is very much in keeping with Jewel's style: sharp piano stabs and synthesizers form a subtle, icy backdrop to sultry vocals. What sets Jewel's work apart from many other disco acts is his reluctance to use computers and new equipment in both production and live performance, thus giving the music an analog quality that is infinitely more arresting than most contemporary disco counterparts.
The majority of the lyrical content is bleak; this is not an album that grabs you on the first listen. Instead, I found myself slowly succumbing to its charms after several runs through. "Mirroir Mirroir" is the most accessible and dancefloor-orientated song on the album, with Louise echoing that well-worn fairytale phrase, "Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all." Then her dark lyrics come to the fore: "I worked so hard and for what?...Show me your heart and I'll show you my blood." After "Don't Call," a classic piece of disco-noir, the album takes a noticeable spin towards the melancholic, with prominent Italo beats replaced by slower, moodier synths and high-end piano.
On "Dans Mens Reve" a saxophone solo follows an introduction reminiscent of a needle running over vinyl (as previously used by Jewel in Chromatics' "In the City"). Jewel's instruments take a back seat to Megan-Louise's vocals on "Oxygene," while "If I Can't Hold You," with three minutes of static after the track is finished, brings II to a moody, wordless close.
