This is a compilation of various songs by Action Directe from early 2000s. Some of these tracks are really good ("Hymn of the Soviet Union", which has very little to do with the actual hymn of the USSR, or "Bullet"), some are bad. There isn't only industrial rock - some tracks sound much more like classical British oi!/streetpunk. Also a good choice of the name for the album... remember the May 1968 in Paris!
