about

"...his most accessible and incredible record to date. The great opener is "Sultan" with an Arabic and Celtic flavour to reach the first notes of "Loneliness", a Folky and touchy ballad and "God Spell", in the same way, but more optimistic.

Things change with the Psychedelic "Dig", the tribal and happy "Lorita", the Indie-Rock beauty of "You´ll Be A Man" and "Jungle". We continue with "Wall Of Shame" a Free-Jazz and Bossa Nova tune, great. "Compassion" is a cut full of joy and tenderness, next comes maybe one of the best moments of the album, the exquisite and introspective "The Ending", the main song and chosen for this new article to show how far Milos can go. The last song is "Crashed", with a Folky and a fantastic acoustic treatment.

"The Ending" caused me a great impact for displaying a new side of MILOS UNPLUGGED, powerful, intimate, melancholic, nostalgic, Experimental and a good example of Neo-psychedelia. Also
so beautiful and lovely with many arrangements mixed with the fantastic Milos´voice. The frontman surrenders completely to this song transforming it in a wonderful theme full of well-crafted and awesome soundscapes so we can noticed all his heart and soul on it. What a brilliant song, really impressive and emotional !!!..." - Fernando Rivera Rodriguez

"un Folk humaniste influencé par les musiques orientales, africaines, sud-américaines, mais aussi par Chris Coen et Little Wings"
Longueurs d'ondes - Séréna Sobréro

"Nourri au biberon des musiques du monde entier, Milos a toujours été un artiste à part, en perpétuelle capable de se réinventer et de papillonner entre les styles, en équilibre toujours instable... Ainsi Milos Unplugged, son projet "solo" (avec beaucoup de guillemets) n'a jamais été un one-man band traditionnel, tant, dans sa volonté de faire sauter les frontières, le garçon n'a jamais hésité à s'entourer d'autres artistes aussi attirés que lui par l'exploration musicale sans filet."
Jonathan Hénault

"Caméléon sonique, blotti près d'une guitare boisée où au cœur de cordes soyeuses partez en voyage avec Milos à la découverte de son Univers musical chatoyant"
Alexis Bardinet - Glob Audio Mastering

"Il délivre des messages universels sans faire de prosélytisme . Ce freinage contre l'illusion et la stérilité de la pensée humaine excelle dans la simplicité des mots. La révélation d'une sincérité absolue. Ce paysage kaléidoscopique se visite avec les oreilles. Nous écoutons le monde comme une gigantesque composition musicale."
Marie Corbal - Hear No Evil

"Salut Milos, ça biche ? Merci pour nous avoir fait passer ton troisième album. On le trouve vraiment réussi, Babouche et moi. Tu as changé ta voix ou quoi ? Tu ne chantes plus vraiment comme avant j'ai l'impression. Mais bon, ça te sied à merveille. Du coup ta musique prend une autre orientation, elle me rappelle tous ces chouettes groupes dont tu organisais les concerts à l'Inca (Cranes Angels ou Adrien Orange). Hyper cool. Et puis tu as l'air de sacrément bien t'entendre avec les Cocktail Bananas, dis donc. On sent qu'Henri, Hugo, Jessica et Julien donnent le meilleur d'eux-même sur ces accompagnements délicats et/ou gaillards - qu'ils soient country & western, gospel blues, africains et pop (pas si "débranchée" que ça)... Non vraiment, ton "éveil" fait tellement plaisir à entendre. "Jungle" et "Compassion" remplissent mon coeur de joie. Merci, mon grand." Matial Jesus Solis - Total Heaven Shop

Track Name: Sultan
Another castle set on fire
Another queen is left for Dead
Too many Kings in this asylum
For all their sons have lost their ways

I wish i was a lonely comet
To burst my body on the ground
If only something was to happen
I hope my god delivers me

Sultan leads the way out out
The elders and youngsters
Sultan play sitar ways
The innocence commencing

The wind is blowing on a nest
An eagle beaten by a snake
The wind is blowing on my neck
The kiss of love will do the rest

I wish i was a lonely comet
The desert flowing in my veins
If only something was to happen
I hope my god delivers me

Sultan leads the way through
The elders and youngsters
Sultan play sitar ways
The innocence commencing
Track Name: Loneliness
Loneliness…
all to herself
against the wall
as your tears your sweet stained eyes.

And I’ve been spared
all my life
as your eyes
your sweet stained eyes
fill my day
they filled my day

Oh I, have tried so hard
to call your name
to bring you home
strange caress

When we, we were so crazy
When we where mad
When we made love
Strange caress
Track Name: God-spell
Hold my hand I got the key to a better world
Call up your friends and tell them how much you love them
Open your hearts and smile to everyone in the busses
Don’t be so shy to talk to any perfect stranger

Hold his hand
Never be the same again
Share your thoughts
Your probably have some things in common

Break the silence
We all deserve to communicate
Don’t be shy
You probably have some things in common

Break the silence
Oh lord sweet Lord

Open their eyes
Oh god sweet God

Give us the power
Oh lord sweet Lord
Track Name: Dig
Dig a bit deeper down when the master’s gone and the lights are out
Dig a bit deeper down fill your pockets up full off tears and blood
You know i’ll come to you when the moon is full diamonds shining Bright
You know i’ll come to you when the sun is down and the lights are out

Dig a bit deeper down 
Love underneath the ground 
Carry all the gold you have found

Many days have passed now
My skin is getting old
Haven’t found anything at all

What are you hiding from 
The words in this song 
Lost in the shadows of god

Dig a bit deeper down when the master’s gone full of dreams he holds
Dig a bit deeper now fill your pockets up full of spine and stones
Dig a bit deeper down when the master’s gone full of dreams he holds
Dig a bit deeper now fill your pockets up full of spine and stones
Dig a bit deeper down Carry all the gold you have found
Track Name: Lorita
I’m sorry for the things i took from you Lorita
I’m sorry for the trouble that i caused
I’m sprry for not letting you by my side Lorita
I’m sorry for the pain that i caused

I was
told that
you were
you oh i
was told
you were a witch
you are a witch
Track Name: You'll be a man
Put on some make up
Trying to make up
Breaking up the lies
That surrounded your heart

You know
Things are getting harder
A smile on the corner
The fastest you can’t run

You know
Maybe someday
You’ll turn out
To be one of those

You’re isolated
Underestimated
The education you’re getting
Drives me off
Track Name: Jungle
Love in between them
I just felt nothing
First time we kissed
The durt on our bodies
Sinking on a land
Feeling heaving and silent
After all we’ve done
Created or invented

The shape of us all
Mixing up together
Making our toys
Playing in the playground
And i can feel the sun glow
After all we’ve done
Fighting for our souls

The silence is killing me
Gotta play that song
My fingers are shaking
Singing this old song

Love is between them
First time we kissed
The dirt on our bodies
Sinking on a land

The shape of us all
Mixing up together
Making our toys
Playing in the playground
And i can feel the sun glow
After all we’re here now
Fighting for our souls
Track Name: Wall of shame
Inside the fire striking beneath my feet
i can see them riding towards the sun endlessly
borders filled with giants bodies sold out in the streets
what had happened to our beloved family

we thought that the wind would blow against them
all he thought of doing of doing is blow against us
borders filled with giants bodies sold out in the streets
what had happened to our beloved family

endangered species
changing colors
water dying
food dying
was growing
darling

endlessly i tried
Track Name: Compassion
If someone in fire is calling me
Embracing the thoughts of a guilty man

What if i don’t feel like talking
While time and space survives
I don’t know what to think about
Human beings and animals
Who is which ? 
I don’t know
One thing for sure
We were built 
To destroy !

If someone in pain is hugging me
Embracing the thoughts of a crazy man


Track Name: The ending
Together we shall stand
Together holding hands
Watching the sky beneath us
Behind those iron bars
We are not prisoners
No one left to rescue

Together we shall stand
Together holding hands
Taking away our children
Painfull stinking gaz
What have you done
This is our world

Together we shall die
War will never end be damned
Twinkle little star
The night is your best friend

The eagle meets the eye
Run after them
Set the soldiers free
Bring the boys back home
What have we done
Track Name: Crashed

Came the invader
Came with large feathers
Drunk dry as the desert
Traveling horizons

Made us work as peasants
Dragons diving and rivers
Star ships firing out magnets
Traveling horizons

You said was great, the song wasn’t yours
The animals cried, the animals died OH NO !

You had to tear it down, car crash it to the ground
Drawing circles on the lines
I wish i was a car

It was harder than the rest
I could not find the breast
My mother was gone for good

The honey in my hand
Running through unmarked lands
The rage on my face

Track Name: Jungle - Paris sessions
Love in between them
I just felt nothing
First time we kissed
The durt on our bodies
Sinking on a land
Feeling heaving and silent
After all we’ve done
Created or invented

The shape of us all
Mixing up together
Making our toys
Playing in the playground
And i can feel the sun glow
After all we’ve done
Fighting for our souls

The silence is killing me
Gotta play that song
My fingers are shaking
Singing this old song

Love is between them
First time we kissed
The dirt on our bodies
Sinking on a land

The shape of us all
Mixing up together
Making our toys
Playing in the playground
And i can feel the sun glow
After all we’re here now
Fighting for our souls
