This album in its original form has always been a must have for all serious collectors of the ZTT label and this new expanded edition is no exception. Anne Pigalle was one of the first artists signed to that very label but was overshadowed by the likes of Art of Noise, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Propaganda and Andrew Poppy but yet, like those artists she had gained a following in her own right as the ‘new Edith Piaf’.

“Everything Could Be So Perfect…” was a brilliantly executed timeless nouveau pop record which at times became almost stereotypical of French music in general but managed to embrace those stereotypes and at the same time grin at them by turning them into a sophisticated original body of work. Out of all the early albums to be released by ZTT, this one was definitely the one to appeal to an adult audience rather than a teenage one. That is the reason why it has always worked so well and stood the test of time.

This new version, subtitled ‘Édtion deluxe’ contains the original album with the addition of remixes from the singles “Why Does It Have To Be This Way…” and “Hé Stranger” along with unreleased material.

Unfortunately adding extra tracks to the first disc detracts from the original album as less is more and I would have actually been more excited about a remastered version with nothing added. Sometimes adding extra tracks enhances an album, but not here.

The second disc is as what you may have come to expect from the Element Series, a collection of mixes, demos and unreleased material from that period. Personally I would have included the three additional tracks from the first disc and left out a few of the tracks that appear on the bonus CD as I got bored with the repetitiveness towards the end. Maybe if an alternate version of the album had been created from the archives, one version per song it would have been more of an enjoyable listening experience.

For the first time listener, I feel it may not have much appeal as there are simply too many versions of the same song on a double CD, on the other hand it is a treasure trove for the ZTT collectors who will embrace it.
