Customer Reviews

Sacré bleu !!!

To her own admission Belinda’s voice has never been polished and her vocal’s were never flawless. She has always had the kind of rough voice that would quite easily fit to singing cool jazz blues in a smokey bar to a small audience. Singing in French suits her perfectly…….. From the heart wrenching ‘Avec le temp’ to the joyous ‘Sous le ciel de Paris’ this album is a roller coaster of emotions. Bonnie et Clyde is probably the most commercial track in this collection and will no doubt be released as the first single. The album climaxes with the ‘Go-Go’esque ‘Jezebel’ and really showcases the power of Belinda’s vocals as she does not sound too dissimilar from Cher. Yes her latest collection is a million miles away from the impressive back catalogue of pop anthems we have come to love. This album is the musical equivalent of Marmite; you will either love it or hate it. Just try and appreciate the raw emotion she uses to translate the meaning of the songs from a foreign language. Indeed the bonus English versions will make you realise that you understood the true meaning of the songs when they were sung in French. That is the true talent shown by Belinda in singing this classic collection, allowing the listener to translate French through vocal emotion. I would not be surprised if this album was nominated for a Grammy in the ‘Foreign Language’ category… such is the quality of Brian Eno’s and Belinda’s collaboration. This is an album from a classy lady that is now making music for the pure joy of it and is no longer interested in competing for that all important record contract chart position. This album comes across as a labour of love. Welcome back Belinda and ‘Merci’

Not Her Best Work

I like Belinda Cralisle, but I do not believe this Album does her justice. Here she has mangled records, originally recorded by such greats as Françoise Hardy and Edith Piaf. The originals are far superior, and I would suggest you seek those out rather than waste eight pounds on this download.

French kissin' in the USA...

Being a massive Belinda fan I would have loved to have given this album a 3 just becase it was released a whole decade after her amazing A Woman & A Man album. However, I would have loved a pop record with new material so this is a bit of a dissapointment. The songs are well sung and produced and you do not have to understand French to enjoy them. Bonnie et Clyde, La Vie En Rose and Me Jeunesse Fout Le Camp are the highlights. It's nice to have 4 of the songs in English too, but would it have been so hard to release the whole album in English? I wouldn't recommend this to casual fans, but it is nice to have on at a dinner party.

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Belinda Carlisle pursued a solo career after leaving the Go-Go's in 1984. As her solo career progressed, Carlisle removed any of the rough edges remaining in her style, transforming from a new wave rocker to a polished adult contemporary pop singer. The change was evident on her first album, 1986's Belinda. Featuring the number three hit single "Mad About You," the record went gold and established her as a viable hitmaker. The following year, Carlisle released Heaven on Earth, her greatest solo success....
