I think not understanding French really makes me listen to the sounds the lyrics (along with the music, naturally) make in, what I would agree is, the Belgian artist's best album to date. However, from what I've read, Stromae is actually a brilliant lyricist too. I always find it disappointing that we fail to listen to music not in English in the UK with very few notable exceptions (here's looking at you, Psy) because this album is incredible and has proved to be a huge hit across Europe...just not here. I was originally told about thumping Papaoutai by a Russian friend who was astounded that I hadn't heard it before; it's a testament to the closed-mindedness of our music tastes.
I hope that if you've made it far enough to read a review on this album it means you're considering buying it - I suggest you do.

I heard the infectious Papaoutai and saw the brilliant video when I was in France and loved both. The album doesn't disappoint. Electronic music with loads of other influences including hip hop, tango, congolese, Cape Verdean, even arabic. This guy truly is a maestro and a visual genius to boot. Intelligent and interesting lyrics. Highly recommended.

This kid writes the most remarkable lyrics, that invoke tears and laughter! And all with a afro/latino beat! Somehow his Belgian rapping manages really well not, to offend my ears!! He is the Belgian Version of our lovely lad 'Dizzy Rascal'!!

Easily the stand out hip hop album of the year, meshing electronic, dance, hip-hop, and rap music. Stromae's second album shows how much he has grown as an artist with less jarring production than his first album. My French has not progressed since high school but you can really sense the intent behind the genre-blending tracks from his stunning vocals, either rapping or singing. From the hip-hop ballad "Formidable" to the driving angst-pop of "Papaoutai" to the moody instrumental "Merci", this album does not lend itself easily to categorisation, but if you like to step outside the realms of top 40 and away from the bravado of American hip-hop you will find a very engaging and accessible artist who pushes the boundaries of rap.
