iTunes Review

Les Cowboys Fringants are a populist Quebec band that channels traditional music into gritty, punkish folk—like a northern answer to The Pogues. Singer Karl Tremblay's rapid-fire delivery is matched by the giddy energy of the rhythm section and the mandolin and fiddle leads. Though the French lyrics are often topical ("La Tete a Papineau" concerns the decay of Montreal's transit system), there's a rowdy side as well: "Heavy Metal," with sawing violins and a shout-along chorus, is about finding true love at a Cinderella concert.

Customer Reviews

Les Cowboys

They have been compared to the Beatles with their melodic music and original subject matter in their songs. You have to understand French though. Cinq etoiles.

Album historique

Cet album est celui central de l'œuvre des Cowboys Fringants. Il a revolutionné la musique québécoise en plus d'avoir marqué des milliers de jeunes au Quebec. Si vous n'avez qu'un CD des Cowboys à acheté, c'est definitivement celui-ci!

Un groupe culte !

Les Cowboys Fringants sont devenu probablement le meilleur groupe jamais vu au Québec et cet album est sans contredit leur meilleur. Si vous n'avez jamais écouté leur musique, vous manquez vraiment quelque chose ! Dans cet album, les cowboys sont vraiment à leur sommet. Et si vous aimez ça, vous ne pourrez vous empêcher d'acheter tous les autres (ce qui arrivera probablement). Certainement un classique de la musique québécoise !

Steeped in traditional Quebec folk and politically charged, they're just as much a modern rock band, and they've built a reputation as a major live draw with a fan base that extends to Switzerland and France. Their releases include the albums Motel Capri...
