4.0 out of 5 stars Top French Band (IMHO!)
First heard of Noir Desir through following New Model Army and there are notable musical similarities between the 2 bands.
666.667 Club has a coupla dodgy-ish tracks, enough to lose a star, but the rest is all good 'Army style Punk/Folk/Rock - especially L'homme Presse, Comme Elle Vient and Un Jour en France, cracking tracks all 3 and worth the purchase price...

3.0 out of 5 stars Being French...
Almost everyone that I know owns this album. Almost everyone that I know only plays two songs off it before succumbing to the earthly temptation to put something (anything!) different on. "Un jour en france" or "l'homme pressé" are good songs. Very good songs. The succession of tosh before, in between and after is simply not worth it. Noir Desir...

Would like to see them live, perhaps a trip over the Channel.....

4.0 out of 5 stars A good French band (maybe they shouldn't sing in English)., 29 April 2008

This is generally a very good album. "Lazy" and "Prayer For A Wanker" leave a little something to be desired but the tracks that are sung in French are great. This is a good introduction to current French music for anyone who is tired of Serge Gainsbourg and Edith Piaf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, updated punk rock at its best, 21 May 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: 666667 Club (Audio CD)
Finally a French band albeit with ethnic roots manage to produce a record which genuinely is on a par or is superior to British or American music. Forget all the derivative nonsense usually considered to be representative if French music, this is well thought out, interesting and well produced. The result is a must-buy for anyone still enjoying the energy of punk but who is tired of simple re-hashing of the old formula and wants something to re-invigorate them.. New bands could learn a lot from this record like, "what you are currently doing has been done before so why not try and be a little more imaginative like these people?".

"Un jour en france" or "l'homme pressé" are good songs. Very good songs. The succession of tosh before, in between and after is simply not worth it. Noir Desir have now released a much better album called "Des visages, des figures". Very clever, mixing two words that mean the same thing, anyway, buy that. Out.
