Format: Audio CD
"Joe le taxi" was the big hit from this album in 1987. It still sounds pretty good, though she sounds very childish, much younger than her 14 years. I don't know how long this took to record, but there is a sense of her voice maturing over the duration. She sings "Le bon Dieu est un marin" with assurance, especially in the bridge were her voice achieves a surprising fullness. "Marilyn and John" is a stand-out track that remained in her concert repertoire and deserves to be called a classic along with "Joe le taxi". It is really her birth as a singer as far as I'm concerned, showing how she can convey the full emotion of a song with an apparent effortlessness that only the great singers can do. The only other track that stands up well is "Soldat". The rest are good, light pop but very much of their time. "Chat Ananas" is a bouncing piece of nonsense and "Coupe, Coupe" a calypso-type toe-tapper. "Scarabee" pays tribute to John Lennon and "Maxou" (allegedly about James Dean) and "Mosquito" are catchy but a little too cute for my liking. The so-called English version of "Marilyn and John" is not a translation but a piece of near gobbledegook. All in all, it is enjoyable, lightweight Euro-pop that still sounds quite fresh. If the French is a problem email me (go to my Profile page) and I'll send you links to translations for this and all her other albums as well (Variations sur le meme t'aime, Bliss and Divine Idylle).

HASH(0x98ada1a8) out of 5 stars Not a product of cookie-cutter marketing, Paradis is my favorite singer/actress 20 Jan. 2006
By Darren Harrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The late 1980s saw another trio of young female singers dominate the European charts. Yes almost two decades ago and long before Spears, Duff and Lohan the pop charts were dominated by Debbie Gibson, Tiffany and ... Paradis.
I grew up in the United Kingdom where French music gets a little more airplay than it seems to in the United States. So whereas people in the U.S. had the (apparently nonexistent) rivarly between Debbie and Tiffany as a hot topic in 1987, for those of us in Europe and Canada another female singer was the hot topic among schoolboys everywhere - Vanessa Paradis.
I first saw Vanessa perform on the now-defunct British show "The Roxy" in 1987 (think a more raunchier European version of `American Bandstand'). Here was this incredible looking (and very young) girl singing the song "Joe Le Taxi" on a stage alongside a full-size real yellow taxi cab. I was so entranced by her striking looks that it was only later that I heard the song.
Since that fateful night I have collected everything I could get my hands on connected to this French singer/actress (who is perhaps best known in the US more for her relationship with Johnny Depp rather than her career). From this album to her movies like "Noce Blanche" and "Une Chance Sur Deux" she has developed a large following and it's easy to see why.
Some criticize the tracks on this album as sounding child-like, but what do they expect? Vanessa was 14 when she sang "Joe le Taxi," certainly she deserves credit for not falling into the cookie-cutter marketing product trap that her contemporary Tiffany fell into. Over the years she has shown that she is willing to take some risks. And after all the venom that was slung her way by female admirers of Johnny Depp, jealous that she was his partner, she has maintained a mature posture that underlies the fact that she is more than just a pretty face.

HASH(0x98ada4b4) out of 5 stars Her first, not *quite* the best, but still excellent! 29 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The one song everyone must know from this album is the international hit "Joe Le Taxi" which still rocks nearly 15 years (can it be that long) since its recording. The other songs on the album are just as catchy (and no, it really doesn't matter if you don't understand French - besides, there is *one* English language song at the end). They range from slow songs ("Le Bon Dieu est un Marin") to the more upbeat like "Coupe Coupe". Vanessa's voice brings a life to the songs which certainly made the previously mentioned "Joe Le Taxi" such a hit. In comparison to her subsequent albums ("Variations sur le meme t'aime," for instance, or her Live album), this naturally pales, but as a debut, it still impresses.

HASH(0x98ada8b0) out of 5 stars A Good Start 30 Oct. 2002
By Wnbhm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the first Paradis album and it's great. A beautiful recording that you can't help but play over and over. Amazingly though, her voice has grown so much over time that it sounds almost weak here-still very good but not the fearless confidence she belts out with today. Here is a girl with a gifted voice, not the powerhouse that makes her one of the greatest pop singers of all time. It's still a great listen though and a must for any fan. If you don't speak French-don't worry, all her work transcends the language barrier.

HASH(0x98ad9728) out of 5 stars Great, Young, Fun. 18 Jun. 2004
By A film watcher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I don't speak a word of french, and discovered Vanessa through my love for Johnny Depp (they have been dating since 1998 and have 2 kids together). I started out with the english ablum "vanessa paradis", which was incredible, and then bought her first live ablum, which gave me a small taste of her popular french songs but also let me hear some of my favorite all-american songs again. I then bought M&J, Vanessa's first ablum ever. All I can say about it is great things. She definatley is not even close to having a strong voice like Chrstina Augulaira or Whitney Houston, but yet Vanessa's voice enchants you in it's own way. This ablum (made when she was just 14) is more bubblegum than anything. It reminds me of Britney Spears's "Hit Me Baby One more Time". My Favorite songs would have to be "Marilyn & John" and "Joe le Taxi", but they are all amazing. VAnessa's songs are all oldies pop, which means that me, my mom, and my grandmother (not to mention even my dad) all love listening to this ablum. All really simple beats and tunes, nothing weird or techno. It's almost the type of music you could calm a baby to, but still stay awake yourself. All in all, not her best ablum, but still absolutley captivating and amazing. If you're like me and speak none or very little french, I dont recommend this as your first Vanessa ablum, and would advise you to go in the order that I did.

HASH(0x98adab68) out of 5 stars The best!!! 12 Jun. 2001
By Alexander Usoltsev - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I heard Vanessa's voise at first (it was her song "Joe le taxi") I didn't pay much attention to her, but then I heard her again and understood, that I really love this girl. And so now I am her fan. I think, that she is the best singer and actress in the world. This album is great. And I... just love her.
