Album Review

Championed by the likes of Brigitte Fontaine and Jacques Higelin, Initiale is the debut album from the "impossible to Google" French singer/songwriter L, aka Raphaele Lannadere. Produced by Babx (Camelia Jordana, Julien Doré), the album features 11 poetic tracks — all penned by Lannadere — that provide an intriguing blend of rock, trip-hop, folk, and jazz. Initiale includes the singles "Jalouse" and "Petite." ~ Jon O'Brien, Rovi

I don't know a lot about french music, but this in my opinion is good music

L's singing is beautiful and musically the instruments are played well. I would personally recommend this to my friends who speak french, but even if they didn't speak french, I would say just by the music and vocals this is a fine album.

So if you just want to learn some close cognates and appreciate the french or it's music this one of the good ones in my opinion.
