Not bad at all
on 18 May 2005
How bizarre - I too bought this album after hearing it in the Borders bookshop on the M62 (Borders is the main bookshop in York - they must be on commission). I didn't know who it was by, but was taken with it enough to buy it there and then. On getting it home and listening to it properly, I found most of the tracks were excellent, though the closeness (breathiness) of the recording setup does get a bit much after a time. Plus, after a series of slow tracks I found myself longing for a more upbeat track for contrast. In fact, I found that the more upbeat tracks, such as Le Toi du Moi and Le Plus Beau du Quartier actually work the best for me. I would certainly recommend this album, particularly if, like me, you enjoy the sound of the french language.
