5.0 out of 5 stars Life is Elsewhere 31 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
At first, I thought Keren Ann's voice was over reminiscent of those seductive, breathy chanteuses who have dominated French popular music for some time. As I lived with the album, I have become more and more impressed with the clarity of her voice and the musical ingenuity displayed in what, at first, feels like quite straightforward acoustic/folk music. "Au coin du monde" and "Ailleurs" stand out for me but I rarely skip any of them. There's no point denying that you lose something if you don't understand French, my enjoyment of the album has increased as I have worked out the lyrics but they are not that difficult and like all good songs sung in a language I don't fully understand, her voice is expressive enough to make an emotional impact. In fact, on her later albums in which she sings in English, I feel she has lost some of that intensity.

4.0 out of 5 stars tres jolie 12 July 2010
Format:Audio CD
There is a relaxed feel throughout this album, and is certainly a mood setter. Well crafted songs complement the soft voice of Keren Ann often with a very simple backing.

This total laid-back nature is in contrast to some of her other albums where dated beats can often cloud her songs. Here we have consistency but not at the expense of drama. Le Sable Mouvant could have come straight out of a Tim Burton film for example.

Certainly a grower and worth investing time in.

5.0 out of 5 stars La Disparition 2 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is simply beautiful. Keren Ann's voice is a great joy, and her delivery of these fabulous songs is simply beautiful. Modern French music is distinct not least for it's language, but for the quality of the singers. I recommend this to persons enjoying beautifully sung music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as "Biographe de Luka Philipsen" 31 Dec 2002
By Tim Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Keren Ann is one of those gems that are kept out of the spot light mainly because there is only a small audience for the magnificence she brings in her music. She doesn't get plastic surgery and doesnt try to fit into any type of music genre.
Her first album, 'Biographe de Luka Philipsen' was definitely a surprise hit that I stumbled upon by mistake (trying to find alternative versions of 'Aeroplane' by Red Hot Chili Peppers, I accidentally download miss Ann's version of the song). 'Biographe' contains some very good songs that fall on scales that are not repetitive in the music biz.
'La Disparition' is not as powerful nor unique as 'Biographe,' however the album continues to prolong the unique and subtle energy of the very talented Keren Ann. The beauty of Keren Ann's music falls on the simplicity of the songs... often imagined as a young girl emotionally driven and singing out of her bedroom to the world around her.
The theme from 'La Tentation' is heard again in the final song 'La Dispiration.' A very cute French song, the melody sounds like a child's song rehearsed in pre school. 'Au coin du monde' sounds like Kansas' "Dust in the Wind" on guitar. Other songs are mellow and fall in the 'Biographe' tradition.
Overall the album is good but not as good as the previous hit. Recommended songs include: 'La Disparition,' 'Aielleurs', and ' La corde et les chaussons.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulously relaxing! 4 Aug 2006
By P. Hardy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
What a wonderful discovery this CD was. Karen Ann has such a sensual, soothing voice and the songs are delightfully different from the usual fare. I listen to this CD at least once a week in the evenings to unwind. With headphones, her soft voice seems to coo in my ear. There's not a track I don't like.
