Johnny on great form as ever,even though unappreciated by and large outside of France.Having seen him in Paris 3 years ago, I know the high standards he embodies in his music,and his band and backing singers are top notch.

I have listened to this album online several times before buying. The Celine Dion duet was sadly unavailable

Spreading through the music industry like an illness, is the need to sing "oh oh oh' as part of a song. Bands such as U2, Coldplay, and Keane have already been afflicted. This year, Ronan Keating suffers from the same problem, with two tracks affected on the 'Time Of My Life' CD. Here, on Johnny Hallyday's 2012 album release 'L'Attente', it has spread to France, to spoil the slow rocker 'Refaire L'Histoire' and the song 'Devant Toi'.

More seriously, 'L'Attente' (44:00) is largely an album of ballads, with the obligatory, rather cliched rocker 'L'Amour A Mort' (5:12) also included. At times, there is a 'U2' influence, on the aforementioned 'Devant Toi', and 'N'en Vouloir A Personne' which sounds like a U2 ballad. The title 'Un Tableau De Hopper' may be about the late actor Dennis Hopper.

The best song 'La Femme Aux Cheveux Longs', a ballad with strings and harmonica, could have come from a 'western' movie soundtrack, and has suitable backing vocals. The title track 'L'Attente' is another notable inclusion. Elsewhere, there are other types of ballads, with '20 ans' having an unusual middle-eight / bridge.

In an age where many acts are gone after only 3 album releases, it is amazing to think that this is Johnny's 48th studio album, and there have been others since !

Having grown up in France where he is a massive star, I have always known of Johnny Hallyday but apart from hearing him on the tv or the radio I never really listened to his music. This is the first Johnny Hallyday album I have bought and I must say it is very good. I would well recommend it.

A great new album from Johnny with a mix of slow bluesy ballads to more heavy rock inspired numbers and everything in between. The duo with Celine Dion is a bit kitsch but overall it is still a catchy song. A must buy for fans and a great intro album for those not familiar with Johnny.
