Definitive Noir Desir - definitive music,
This review is from: Des Visages Des Figures (Audio CD)
Noir Desir were one of the most innovative bands around. Their lead singer Bertrand Cantat has been in the press of late for killing his girlfriend, but this doesn't overshadow the brilliance of their music, and this is their best album by far. Very few bands have the honesty to release albums where every track is different and a genre in itself. If you love music - buy this album. I did a compilation of the best of Noir Desir recently and virtually all of the tracks from this album were on it! The last track is pompous garbage a la Jim Morrison at his worst - but "Lost" is one of the best songs of all time. Don't worry about the French thing - the emotion comes across whatever language you speak. Indispensable! Get it! Got it? Good!
