CD Reviews

He burned out way too soon
Rich King's Breakfast Nook | East Gretna, NE | 06/17/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jordy was a musical hurricane sent from France back in the early 90s to show americans that, contrary to popular belief, a four year old french kid rapping about being a baby could dominate the charts and make an album that matters. Jordy was in rotation non stop on my Alpine in 93 with hits like Boules(losers). Some people never got it, in fact some of the girls I would take out on dates would question why I, a suave love machine, would listen to a four year old rap in french about things a baby deals with. The date usually ended right there because if a girl couldn't understand why a smooth 20 something guy would listen to a four year french kid, she was never going to understand me. Jordy was at a level far above normal human understanding. Was it a bit cocky to go by one name at age four? Yes, but this cd is bold enough to pull it off. The kid was well on his way to being the next Michael Buble until he got sucked in by the hollywood star machine. He's just not the same now and it's too bad because Jordy could be selling out stadium tours right now."
Sweet pop (and an ounce of controversy) for a dance party
Michael R. Airhart | Providence, RI, United States | 02/21/2006

"Jordy Lemoine: An international superstar at age four and a half, he was allegedly banned from French TV and radio by age six by government officials concerned that he was being exploited. (Source: Wikipedia.) Now of legal age, some web sites say Jordy's aspiring to make a comeback as a DJ.

In Pochette Surprise, Jordy sings rhymes about the topics one would expect of a 4-year-old: playing favorites among his sisters, for example, and having to take orders from parents.

The music consists of slick techno-era dance tracks with a steady beat. The sound is not creative or original in the mode of a future Fatboy Slim or William Orbit, but it is very danceable and reasonably varied.

Pochette Surprise begs party guests to break out 'n' boogie, charms listeners with the ramblings of a French kid, and raises eyebrows among child-welfare advocates."
