le retour d'Anggun

It is fantastique that iTunes has added the newest album of Anggun. Although there are other albums that should be added to the American iTunes store by Anggun I am thrilled to be able to purchase her newest release! Merci beaucoup iTunes, vous êtes le meilleur!

If you are looking for a great French artist, you have found her. Anggun has a sultry quality to her songs. They are soulful, thoughtful and full of purpose. Even if you don't understand French, you can feel the vibes from her music.

Anggun's Best Album yet!

This is by far the best album by Anggun! It is her most mature of all the music she has put out. She is in her element vocally, musically, lyrically and emotionally. It takes you on a journey and is your passport to the world. Her vocals shine throughout the entire album, and this will ensure and cement her as the worlds best selling Asian artist.

Anggun is giving us a look at her in a very personal way. From her video teasers which are her without being all made up. She is natural and pure and her music is, too.

This album is pure genius and will cement many awards and accolades for which she deserves!

I've been fortunate to meet her and maintain a friendship and she is one of the most genuine and down-to-earth people on this earth.

Cheers to my friend, Anggun!

About Anggun

An Indonesian pop princess who later moved to Europe to conquer the Western charts as well, Anggun was born in Jakarta and listened to native Javanese music as well as rock icons like Elvis Presley. She began performing at the age of seven, and recorded her first album just two years later. By the time Anggun was 17, she had become the most popular artist in the country during the early '90s. Not satisfied with her success, she moved to London and later Paris to begin recording for a breakthrough into the European charts. With the help of producer Erick Benzi (whose credits stretch from Celine Dion to Jean-Jacques Goldman and Johnny Hallyday), the soulstress recorded the album Snow on the Sahara for a 1998 release on Epic Records.

The album was influenced by the ethno-dance (e.g. Deep Forest) and adult contemporary female singer/songwriter pop (e.g. Julia Fordham) popular at the time, and though it was only a minor success, the title-track single gave her what would be her biggest ever international hit; charting in eight countries, it went to number one in Italy and hit no. 22 on the US Billboard chart. The album was also released both in a French version (entitled Au Nom de la Lune) and an Indonesian (Anggun), establishing a pattern that would be replicated with all her subsequent albums. The 2000 follow-up Chrysalis (aka Désirs Contraires) saw her take more control of songwriting and move in an electro-pop direction, and in 2002 she recorded the soundtrack for the Danish Dogme film Elsker Dig for Evigt (aka Open Hearts), which was to be her last album released in the US.

For 2005's Luminescence she chose not to work with Erick Benzi again, instead opting for a portfolio of producers. She also switched labels to Heben Music, an imprint of Universal. The album was her biggest hit in France, reaching number 16, and produced her second biggest ever single hit in the shape of "Saviour" (aka "Cesse la Pluie"). The song was included on the soundtrack of the Jason Statham vehicle Transporter 2, which topped the U.S. box office charts. Elevation followed in 2008, and her fifth international album, Echoes, in 2011; it was her first for Warner, and marked the first time that any English version of her albums entered the French chart. ~ John D.
