    Already the first track hits me in the stomach: lovely oriental scales to modern electronic music, sung in French by a flamboyant lady. It is powerful and imaginative. Furthermore, Brigitte Fontaine has no wimpy voice but a voice of gunpowder. Unfortunately there are tracks less attractive. Sometimes it becomes far too monotonous to me. I would like to question whether this music really is avant-garde. Alright, there are some mixes going on, between different genres. But, to me, avant-garde requires experiments on a higher level. Honestly, the major part of this album is modern dance music or modernized chansons with a touch of world music adapted for electronica and dub.

    In the long run I will remember her voice and the essence of French chansons. Whether you're sitting still or throwing yourself around on a dance floor, it’s the expression that fascinates. Tracks worth remembering are “La Femme À Barbe”, “Belle Abandonnée”, “Interieur Nuit”, “Le Train Deux-Mille-Cent-Dix” and “Il Se Mèle A Tout Ça”.
