I'm not sure what was more surprising - Belinda suddenly releasing a new album after 10 years of very little solo song-making, or the fact that when she does, it's all in French! I wasn't convinced she'd pull this one off, especially when tackling some almost-sacred French songs by some of the greats - like Gainsbourg, Piaf and Aznavour - but I've been very pleasantly surprised. OK, the French accent isn't always perfect and the imagery is pretty cliched, but the album's got a great sound, Belinda's voice is strong (and at times pretty sultry), and the arrangements are quite original, making for an interesting listening experience. This is a must for any fan, and most will actually really enjoy it! Welcome back Belinda - can't wait for the tour!
