"At first listen I was a bit skeptical of the zany group, but Les Negresses Vertes have slowly but surely rocked their way to the front of my CD collection -- whether I want to dance or clean my apartment, the fun rhythms and unique blend of voices and instruments hit the spot every time. Of course being a bit well-versed in the French language adds an extra layer to the spectrum, but even non-Francophones will have a blast with these guys. My favorite album is Zigue-Zague, and Mlah comes in at a close second. Après La Pluie (track 3 on Zigue-Zague) gets me parading and singing around my apartment every time. Les Negresses Vertes' sound really WORKS because they include just enough "French" sound (accordions, etc.) to assuage that need for the romantic French sound and throw in the perfect dash of brash lyrics and strong rhythms to cater to the crazy banshees in us all. Vive le rock de France!"
