Mylene at her best

"Frankly I feel that I'm more than a Mylene fan...I regard her as the grandiose, mysterious, super-goddess-supreme of Pop Music... It's a shame she's not well known world wide!This was the first cd (and a double-cd!!) of Mylene that I bought, and I'm still listening to it regularly...her live renditions of such classics as "Sans Contrefacon", "Mon Coeur est Lache", "Je T'aime Melancolie", are truly gems...and some versions even surpass the originals from studio albums (i.e.: "Libertine").This concert was made in 1997, two years after the release of Mylene's last studio album by then, "Anamorphosee"...and obviously it features much of its songs, most notably "XXL" (a great showstopper), "Alice" (so sexy), "California", "Comme J'ai Mal"....I even don't speak french that well, but anyway her songs catch me under its spell...and I even sort of understand the lyrics pretty well, they're magic for me.Well, I have to admit that I became such an ardent fan of Mylene, that I bought a multizone dvd equipment which also converts PAl norm to NTSC, and bought her four (available) dvd's at Amazon.france and Amazon.germany. They're all greaaattt (worth every "EURO" I had to pay)...especially the dvd of this Concert (Just A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!) and Music Videos Numbers II & III, which features her video clips from her "Anamorphosee" (1995) and "Innamoramento" (1999) albums, plus "Mon Coeur est Lache".Mylene, supreme goddess of love, sensuality, sexiness and mood... Vous-etes grand!!!"

"Live concerts have always been an important part of Mylene's oeuvre, and "Live a Bercy" is an absolutely worthwhile item for fans. It's obvious that the visual element is missing here, but nevertheless, this powerful and entertaining set has the magical feel of an erotic dream. Many songs here are taken from 1995's "Anamorphosee", and although I don't like these songs as much as Mylene's earlier ones, the rock-oriented, organic sound of this album is very suitable for live performance. A few classic tracks like "Sans contrefacon" and "Desenschantee" are thrown in, and it's a credit to Mylene and her band that they are not just duplicating the original versions. Also, there's some new material here; "Que mon coeur.." and "La poupee..", the latter one being a duet with Algerian pop star Khaled. A stunning art-work package with silver-colored hard-cover, a thick photo booklet, and other gimmicks rounds off this great double-disc set. The best photo shows Mylene sitting on the back of a huge metal spider. In my opinion, "Live a Bercy" is one of the best live performances of the '90, but I'm going to wait for the DVD edition."

"Mylène's shows have always been superb, both musically and visually. A lot of hi-tech is used and Mylène makes it easier on herself by using sequencers (some vocal parts are pre-recorded). However, I guess that's the only way to do these kind of shows where the singer dances almost continuously. The songs sound very big and powerful compared to the studio versions and she's got one hell of a band behind her who are not afraid to improvise. Her songs are mostly about her fears and doubts, about being lost in an incomprehensive world. When Mylène sings a song like "rêver" she's likely to break down and cry as on this album. And you can bet that half of the audience is crying too when that happens ... But when she puts a dance beat to her words of complete depression like on "désenchantée", the songs become sing-along party hits ! Her rich vocabulary and a good sense of observation only help to make her music so good. And yes, Mylène seems to have it all. She's fragile, feminine but also sexy and provocative. Myléne's the kind of girl that calls out for help and makes you wish that you were there to rescue her. Very captivating."
