Comment te Dire Adieu - Review
robstanfield | UK | 02/20/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is an excellent album. Francoise Hardy specialises in the autumnal, and a couple of numbers apart (the jazzy 'Etonnez-Moi Benoit...' and the sublime camp-cool opener 'Comment te Dire Adieu') the mood is reflective and often melancholy - without lapsing into dullness. Fine examples of Hardy's own songwriting such as 'Les Etoiles et Le Mer' and 'A Quoi Ca sert?' (with proto-Nymanesque intrumental passage in the middle) keep fitting company with covers of Leonard Cohen's 'Suzanne', Gainsbourg's 'L'anamour' (better than his own version, I feel), subdued Brazilian piece 'Mesange' and a pleasant French version of 'Lonesome Town'.Highlights for me are: the title track itself, in which Hardy's breathy detached voice drifts over a flamboyant orchestral tune and a latin beat; the wistful closing number 'Les Etoiles et Le mer'; and the gorgeous 'Ou Va La Chance?', a glorious weepy which has the sweetest, loneliest music and voice, without ever quite becoming sacharine.Never less than good, this is record worth playing all the way through, and that makes it a rarity for me. It's a well structured, charming, and sometimes moving, artefact. Recommended for FH fans and also simply fans of good pop songs."
Superb and timeless

"I still cannot believe how amazing this CD is - I heard Francoise Hardy's voice several years ago after a friend made a tape, and I decided to try some of her music on my own. I'm glad I picked this CD because it is just one of the most beautiful, romantic, and sublime collections of music I have ever heard. Her voice is melancholy, but not cloying, the music (outside of the lighthearted "e'ttonez-moi,benoit...! and playful, but not vapid, "comment te deire adieu?") is incredibly compelling and moving on every track. "ou' va la chance?" actually gives me the chills at certain points. Her cover of Leonard Cohen's impossibly lovely "Suzanne" is very effective. Most Americans don't know Francoise Hardy, but I'm glad I do. After hearing this CD, I know I want more."
FRANCOISE, THE GIRL MOST GUY WOULD LIKE AS SISTER

"FRANCOISE'S first VIRGIN album has survived rather well, even if it only goes 30 minutes.Two GAINSBOURG classics:the title track and L'ANAMOUR;ETONNEZ MOI BENOIT from the pen of writer PATRICK MODIANO;a BRASSENS song that was inspired by poet LOUIS ARAGON ,and a few other interestings songs.The importance here ,is that FRANCOISE is more willing to orchestrate her songs with different arrangers, and it works well.Actually, she had started doing it in the previous album MA JEUNESSE FOUT LE CAMP"
