AllMusic Review by

Another grab-bag EP from Les 5-4-3-2-1 before their full-length debut, with an assortment of misses. "Les Premiers Jours d'Amour" is a canny reconfiguring of the Phantom Gift's own "Heart Ni OK" from 1986, whereas "Le Sonde 'Love'" sounds like Public Image Ltd.'s "Rise" slowed down into a late-night jam. The songwriting and production is an improvement over Un, with backing vocalists, live strings (not the canned ones on Un), and much more energy. Standout tracks are the techno-pop "Je T'aime" and the poppy closer "Deux-Mix 'Bus Stop' Sur le Trottoir."
