With their name inspired by a French lyrical term for the sound of swishing skirts, a sound said to have driven men delirious with desire at the Folies Bergères, Frou Frou's debut album Details is suitably delicate, languorously sensual and deliciously evocative. One half breathless singer-songwriter Imogen Heap and the other uber-collaborator Guy Sigsworth, Frou Frou are a coupling of fine pedigree. Having worked with everyone from Seal, to Bjork and Madonna (cowrote "What It Feels Like For A Girl"), Sigsworth's decision to reunite with Heap following his contribution to her 1998 debut album I Megaphone is well judged.
Combining Sigsworth's electronic post-dance rhythms, naturalistic post-digital melodies and Heap's pre-bed honeyed vocals, Details glows with listless charm, effortless equanimity and an infectious joie de vivre. While tracks such as "Breathe In" and "It's Good To Be In Love" are both as gloriously uplifting as a dreamy cloudless summer morn, the romantic lyrics are self-explorative enough to keep the listener firmly rooted in reality. As Heap implores on "Dumbing Down Of Love": "music is worthless unless it can make a complete stranger break down and cry". A brave statement, but Details while beautifully emotional, is far more likely to raise a smile. --Christopher Barrett

I was first introduced to Frou Frou through a Hed Kandi complilation, and this album has that house/jazz/dance/popish sound that Hedkandi does so well on their "Serve Chilled" selections. The entire album is filled with wonderfully diverse and well written songs, the voice of Imogen Heap perfectly complemented with the relaxed instrumental styles of beat.
Songs such as the opening 'Let Go' and 'shh' are perfect examples of how technological music can also be emotional. Neither too heavy nor too sparse, Sigsworth's futuristic sounds, decorative bass lines and sweeping string arrangements both showcase Heap's voice and create the warmth of the album. Other notable songs range from those with that 'feel good factor': 'Breathe In, Only Got One and Hear me Out' to those with a darker undertone such as 'The Dumbing Down of Love and Psychobabble which clearly echoes Sigsworth's past collaboration on Bjork's 'Debut' and 'Homogenic' albums.
This album will undoubtedly find its way into the hands of those who actively look for different kinds of music. 'Details' offers technology driven music at its very best and is truly unique in sound and feel and I doubt any other album will come close to the standard set by this one. All in all, despite the many criticisms people may have, this album is a rare gem, masterpieces such as this are rarely seen!
