Unburdened and foundered under a dramatic persona of luck-stricken troubadours, Balthazar seem to have chosen a style of blithe and poignant storytelling for their second album. Joker's Son" is a perfect example of their new approach, with its lazy horns and its earnest statements : "A joker's son/ my coat's somewhere around town/ I never won but I rest assure that I can endure/ The spinning". Slow paced and relaxed, Rats delivers a feeling of whimsical obtrusiveness.

The second album, Rats, was released on 15 October 2012 in Europe, excluding the UK. This was again produced by Jinte Deprez and Maarten Devoldere. The album was mixed by Noah Georgeson (Devendra Banhart, The Strokes) in Los Angeles. On 26 January 2015 Balthazar released the single "Then What", which preceded the album "Thin Walls" that released two months later. Then What was generally well received, with among others a first place in Studio Brussel's Afrekening for four weeks in a row. "Thin Walls" was released on 30 March 2015 and is their first album where a producer is involved.

Reviews about Balthazar - Rats (3):
Mine is autographed by the group's members on the backside !For me one of the famous belgian alternative rock band !
No poster in my copy :(
No poster in mine as well but does include a download code. Also, the runouts are different. Probably a repress. Some HQ pictures of the back of the sleeve of this version woud be nice.
