As a fan of the late Serge Gainsbourg, I felt it was important to give this album a listen.
Well, the jury is well and truly out. Some of the mixes complement Serge and his vocals, updating older tracks and giving them a new lease of life. Others have me baffled, losing the song completely in the mix.
So, this is one of those albums where I will select certain tracks to listen to and skip the others.
Give it a go and make up your own mind - you may disagree with me.
Anyone familiar with Gainsbourg's music will readily appreciate how odd is the notion of remixes. Well, you wouldn't be far wrong in assuming it's a very mixed bag, with his most well-known tunes rendered almost unrecognisable, and mostly laidback beats creating a downtempo mood. Buy it if you're adventurous and love old Serge's stuff.
