CD Reviews

The best of French Pop with a late 80's early 90's sound.
Mark Sloan (msloan@carlnet.org) | Monticello, Indiana | 03/28/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first heard Daho on the radio while traveling in France in 1991. I bought the album before I returned to the States thinking this guy could be huge in the US if Americans would just be more respeptive to hearing music sung in another language. Unfortunately Americans aren't, and they miss out on some fantastic music such as this Album. Recorded in New York using the latest in technology and excellent musicians, this album has legs. Eight years later it still sounds fresh and current. He is the only French musical artist I know who makes the French language sound natural or even appropriate in the rock or pop venue. Good Stuff."
Daho's best CD by far

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first heard Etienne Daho's music while living in Europe in the early 1990s. "Paris Ailleurs" had just been released, and I snapped it up after hearing songs from it on the radio and seeing videos on MTV Europe. I have since accumulated all of Daho's CDs, and am a big fan, but this one is his best album by far. The songs are tightly constructed and yet moody and hypnotic. He went for a very bright sound, but with some funk thrown in."
French pop at its best

"Daho continues the tradition of French pop music by integrating moving poetic images with satisfying rhythms and harmonising of very competent backing vocals from his Senegalese (?) accompaniment.He lived in London before releasing this album and it is reflected in both the innovative musical arrangement as well as the playful bilingual lyrics and cross-the-Channel imagery.An excellent introduction to contemporary French music, showing it at its best while avoiding some of the usual cliches."
