iTunes Review

The eerily seductive sounds heard on Charlotte Gainsbourg’s third album IRM take inspiration from the MRI scans the actress/singer underwent after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage in 2007. The throbbing rhythms and vaguely ominous lyrics heard in these tracks create a dream-like atmosphere at once enticing and disquieting. Gainsbourg’s sensuously wispy vocals are given vivid, sometimes startling backdrops by producer Beck, who blends colors from ‘60s baroque rock with contemporary electronic grooves. Clattering drums lend primal ferocity to such dark meditations as “Heaven Can Wait” and the title number. More billowy in feel are “Me and Jane Doe” (a lovely aural travelogue) and “Time of the Assassins” (genteel with its loosely-draped strings and folk guitar). On “Dandelion,” Gainsbourg coos erotically against a sparse, blues-dipped track, while “Greenwich Mean Time” pairs a sinister nursery rhyme with clanging metallic beats. At times – especially on the shimmering “Vanities” – Gainsbourg and Beck succeed in capturing an angelic sense of longing.

Very Cool

This is superb. Charlotte Beck. Very original and retro at the same time. Neat trick.

A must buy!

Ok look at the singles top ten of Itunes. I mean the chart is an embarrassment to all thats good music. In the middle of some wanker chick whos singing about brushing her teeth with a bottle of jack and another teenage "singer" who needs a desperate haircut (that emo cut is so 2006), you will find this pure gem that is called Beck and Charlotte.

Charlotte is also an accomplished actress in your own right but make no mistake, her voice is truly amazing. Beck's production fits perfectly here, adding a bit of a retro vibe which suits her voice perfectly. I'm not really about to go into details as to why its good, in the end music is subjective, but if you look at the top ten and shudder then this record is for you....

A Masterpiece!

Easily comparable with the best albums of Beck and I'm a huge Beck fan. The songs with the strings remind you of Sea Change but it still stands by itself on so many levels. It goes against everything that you are used to hearing and succeeds admirably. I can't stop listening to this album.

Charlotte Gainsbourg may be better known as an accomplished actress than as a musician, but her singing career has also been significant. Around the same time she began acting, Gainsbourg also started singing professionally. At 13 years old, she recorded her debut, Charlotte for Ever, an album of songs written by her father, singer/songwriter/provocateur Serge Gainsbourg, that was inspired by the film he directed and in which they both starred. The infamous father-daughter duet "Lemon Incest" mirrored...
