CD Reviews

An unlikely favorite
Techie Heidi | Kennewick/Ellensburg WA, USA | 10/24/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I'll admit, I bought this album on a whim. A friend of mine--who, strangely, is into punk rock--recommended Emilie Simon to me after she had heard this CD playing at a friend's house. She thought that Emilie sounded quite similar to my favorite Japanese artist, Akino Arai. It was only for that reason I even remotely considered buying the album. I must say, my friend was right. The vocals are pretty similar in style and I even had good comparison material since Akino sings a few songs in French. So far, my favorite track is Lise with Il Pleut coming in at a close second. Anyway, I've never been much of a fanatic for the French language and I certainly don't nose about in this genre of music either. I'm more of a English/German/Japanese and Gothic/EBM/Industrial person. But even so, I'll definitely be watching for Emilie's future releases. The reason I only gave this a four is because there are a few tracks I wasn't too sure if I liked them or not, for example, I Wanna Be Your Dog. Sounds good and everything... just seemed a little strange to me. I still recommend this CD though."
Voice. That voice!!

"Emilie Simon's such a great singer/songwriter. Dark, yet soothing. Empty, yet emotional. All songs here are top-notch, even the cover of The Stooges' "I wanna be your dog" sounds intellectual. Must have."

"She has the baby voice of Vanessa Paradis, but her melodies are very different. I love the violins in some of her songs, also I love Flowers, very sweet but my favorite is Chanson, the last track. Now I have heard the whole album and I love love love it. A must get."
