I love this album tremendously: it was the soundtrack to my first year at university, and twenty-five years later having gotten it on vinyl for the first time (I had the CD back before I knew better, but that's long gone), I can say that it still holds up. The French is difficult, southern, idiomatic, but it is also wildly funny, full of desire and angst and despair and joy, without contradiction. Great stuff here, rich images of city and sea, and inventive instrumentation played at a time when mainstream pop was dominated by crappy synthesizers and wailing, bleating saxophones. LNV and Mlah should have had a much wider audience...but knowing America and Britain's love-hate affair with the French, that was never going to happen, was it? If you've got any French at all, give this one a try, and you might be in for a treat.
