Having owned the Amelie soundtrack album for over 2 years I thought I ought to check out some later Yann Tiersen so I bought Les Retrouvailles (In English - Meeting Again). This disk contains wonderful rich melodies, with interesting and different instrumentation, the music borrows from French folk and street music, as well as rock, avant-garde, and classical. The instrumentals are just simply a cut above the norm and the two vocal tracks featuring ex Cocteau Twins singer Elizabeth Fraser are simply stunning and magical, so good in fact that I think it's time I listened to her back catalogue. I think this abum sounds slightly less french in style than the excellent Rue Des Cascades whilst still retaining plenty of gallic charm.
To sum up in just one word - SENSATIONAL.

I bought this on a trip to Paris and it came with a DVD which shows film of how it was made. I love it all, I have had it for several years now and still get a huge amount of pleasure out of all the tracks, it has a wonderful European feel with a mix of piano tracks as well as other instrumentals. Buy it and enjoy, this is better than the Amelie, if that's possible.

Just revisiting this after hearing Tiersen has signed to Mute.Shockingly good and original with it. Sort of a Breton equivalent to the soundtracks of Hilmar Orn Hilmarsson. In a summer of dazzling muisc (and books - Perrin's West and Young's Electric Eden are both touchstones) it is nice to remember something that got you through some stormy waters and then some. The photo of Ushant on the back cover is both priceless and timeless.

This is probably the Yann Tiersen record I've played most often. While none of the tracks are as heart-wrenchingly beautiful as 'Rue des Cascades'-could anything be-there is plenty of wonder. 'La Veille' is almost a dry run for the 'Valse d'Amelie, 'Le Matin' is astounding in how much feeling can be put into such a simple piece of piano music. 'La Boulange' with it's extraordinary interplay of electri guitar and Ondes Martenot is unclassifiable! The title track is amazing with the multiple-tracked harpsichord, 'Marie', with Liz Fraser of the Cocteau Twins and near here, from Falkirk, is the most beautiful song and so atmospheric in its aching longing.
Such a beautiful collection of music!
