Jimm is a one-man act from Paris, claiming to make 'electric metal'. While researching this album (I lost the accompanying biography), I found a rant from a metalhead who absolutely despised the fact that Jimm used that term. In a way, I can understand him but was it necessary to tear this album down as much as that guy did? Absolutely not, this is a fun album, loaded with energetic punk and alternative rock.
True, this is not a very original album. You get ten rock songs with French vocals, some flashy solos and a decent dose of energy. It also begins with the least good song (I'm not using the word 'worst' because it still isn't bad). 'Jamais De Trêve' reminds me a bit of acts like Calibre, especially in the vocals. But from then on, we're on a nice journey through the heavier side of alternative rock music.
Most of the songs, and especially 'Jour De Gloire' or 'Je Cherche A M'Endormir' remind me of anything between Green Day and Foo Fighters, often enhanced with some influences from stoner rock and old school hard rock. The combination works quite well and I can easily imagine this act playing on one of the upcoming summer festivals. I can also imagine several heads being turned into their direction and some rockers starting to dance.
There are more good songs on this album. Halfway through 'Ton Souffre-Douleur' I see no reason to criticize this piece of work. Yes, maybe it isn't metal. Yes, maybe it is something for young adolescents. But does it matter? No, it doesn't. In all, 'In[can]decence' is an excellent rock album, one that pleasantly surprised me on many occasions. I wasn't expecting this groovy and immersive rock at first but after a few good listens, I might become one of those dancing rockers at that summer festival...
