Mandatory contemporary French rock
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This just might be my favorite French rock CD of the '90s. The sound is a nice cross between Beatles-esque pop and Seattle grunge. "Où et avec qui tu m'aimes" is what everyone says it is below: a great song. Its equals are "Lucie" and "Les Meilleurs ennemis," the haunting duet with Zazie (his wife?). "Personne," "Il faut du temps" and "Eléa" are close behind, and I imagine all of these songs recieved extensive airplay in France. It's a shame that didn't happen in the U.S.; if we weren't such isolationists, one could easily imagine hearing these songs on the radio alongside Oasis, Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Alice in Chains, Jeff Buckley, et al."
BUY HIS LATEST CD "SOLEDAD" INSTEAD
(1 out of 5 stars)
"I have to admit .... what prompted me to buy Obispo's "Superflu" was his latest album "Soledad". I bought "Soledad" first. The songs on "Soledad" definitely sound sexier and believe it or not, he sounds sexier too!I listened to "Superflu" once or twice, took it out of my CD player ..... and it's now collecting er, dust. It had nearly put me to sleep. Snore.I'm still listening to "Soledad" and it must be 20, 30, 40 times already maybe?"
