Album Review
Reviewed 2005-01-07
French music with a Spanish flair. The execution is strong, though the concept is occasionally dubious. At times there’s too much “symphonette” orchestration and the originals are better, but it’s interesting to see how French romanticism gets changed into passionate flamenco. I also wonder what Brel, Aznavour, Gainsbourg & Co., would think.

1. Slow & elegant w/strong male vox & a sense of drama.
2. Bright w/soaring fem vox/palmas/guitars, etc. Nice.
3. 1:36 intro into to#4. Slow. Nice but not necessary.
*4. Midtempo love song w/passionate vocals.
5. I think she just got dumped. Slow w/lots of emotion.
*6. Warm male vox & fem. chorus. Light & lively
7. Slow w/husky fem voice/strings/piano. Lots of sadness.
*8. Starts slow, gets midtempo. Male vox/guitar. Hints of jazz.
9. Piano adds lushness to this relaxed love song. Nice vox.
10. Slow tragic Brel classic w/lots of strings. A bit overdone.
11. At times jazzy w/ rich, passionate fem vox. Slow/midtempo.
*12. Quasi-loungy w/a sort of quirky charm & lots of singers. You may hate it.
