Because we here in Britain tend to discount continental European music for some obscure reason, then French Pop artists like Mylene have always been overlooked when it comes to actually listening to the end product.
As a huge fan of this amazing performer, I have always listened to her offerings with special interest, because her unique sound and style is something that sets her apart from many run of the mill artists of the present era. Mylene has evolved her sound with the changing times, and as a result has maintained her huge fanbase, as well as recruiting a continuing army of new followers, who will eagerly listen to her, and agree that she has talent in great abundance.
Monkey Me for me, is arguably the best album ever from the French Queen of Pop, with every single track containing that special something that encourages a further listen at a later date. Eventually the entire album grows on you and has you wondering why on earth you allowed such music to go unheard to for so long.
If pushed into listing my personal favourites from the contributions on this amazing album, then I would have to mention Love Dance, Elle a Dit, Quand, Ici Bas and the title track Monkey Me.
But don't take my word for it ... if you haven't heard Mylene Farmer before, then you really should listen to this album and rate her for yourself. That fantastic French sound will capture the imagination, and you will possibly be a new recruit to the fanbase ......
