Album Review

The 12th studio album by Florent Pagny, C'est Comme Ça is an impressive Spanish-language effort recorded in Miami that includes contributions from some of the Latin music world's finest songwriters and one of its premier producers. If it surprises you that Pagny, one of the most successful French recording artists of the '90s and early 2000s, would take the time to make a full-length album's worth of Latin music, you don't know him very well. For one, he's married to an Argentine woman with whom he has children, and he's long been a resident of Patagonia, the expansive southern wilderness region of Argentina where he and his family reside on a large farm. Secondly, it's been years since he's released a straightforward French pop album. Prior to C'est Comme Ça, he put out Pagny Chante Brel (2007), a collection of Jacques Brel covers; Abracadabra (2006), an earnest album of chanson; and Baryton (2004), a full-scale orchestral effort with opera excursions. His last straightforward French pop album was Ailleurs Land (2003), which spawned his last chart-topping hit single, "Ma Liberté de Penser." C'est Comme Ça consequently isn't all that out of character for Pagny, who has made a virtue of eccentricity in recent years. While this might madden fans longing for a return to French pop from Pagny, those fans willing to follow his whims will find that C'est Comme Ça is rewarding, a well-crafted album of sophisticated Latin pop that's both lyrically and musically rich. In conceiving C'est Comme Ça, Pagny surrounded himself with first-rate talent, above all producer Julio Reyes Copello, best known for his work with Marc Antony. In addition to his pristine production work here, Reyes composed five intermittently sequenced instrumentals a minute or so in length each that create a sublime ambience and give C'est Comme Ça the feel of a concept album. The songwriting efforts were led by Raúl Paz and Fernando Osario, who contributed a couple songs each, including the album's primary highlights, "C'est Comme Ça" and "Amar y Amar." Other songs are credited to Diego Torres, who is featured as a duet partner on his song, "Te Puedo Acompañar"; Alejandra Guzmán, whose contribution is a duet with Cheona; and Astor Piazzolla, whose tango classic "Vuelvo al Sur" closes the album.

Customer Reviews

Bravo, es excelente !!!

J'adore, "Te puedo acompanar", "Me siento bien", "C'est comme ça"... idéal pour l'été et pour changer un peu la bibliotheque des ipod. Très belle réprise du "Vuelvo al sur" de Mercedes Sosa. Le duo avec la star argentine Diego Torres peux devenir un deuxième single facilment. Merci Florent Pagny !!!
