Editors’ Notes

Once the chirpy lead singer of the 80s powerpop group the Go-Go’s and then a successful solo singer (“Heaven Is A Place on Earth”), Carlisle has been silent for nearly a decade. Her return is welcomed if unexpected, as she reinvents herself on Voila as a singer of French pop standards. However, while her material covers a wide range and hits upon the important archetypes from Edith Piaf to Serge Gainsbourg to Francoise Hardy, she is hardly beholden to traditional arrangements. Her backing group includes Brian Eno on keyboards and the Hot House Flowers’ Fianchna O’Braonain on guitar and the arrangements are exploratory in their approach, applying elements of electronica, ambient, middle-eastern groove, alternative rock and everything in between. The eclectic and expansive settings leave plenty of room for Carlisle to explore her own vocal experiments. She sounds perfectly comfortable singing entirely in French, her rich tone coming through strongly on “Avec Le Temps,” Jacques Brel’s “Ne Me Quitte Pas,” Piaf’s “La Vie En Rose” and Charles Aznavour’s “Jezebel.”

Customer Reviews


Just bought this, and it's really good - very different. I have not always been the biggest fan of Belinda's solo stuff, but this is really good. I love it.

Belinda Carlisle's Voila Delivers!

Get ready for Belinda Carlisle's voice to deliver you to an all new, musical terrain: more than she did as an 80's Go-Go or any prior solo outing. The all-French 'Voila' frames Belinda's vibrato beautifully and emotionally delivers as never before. Brian Eno adds to this welcome departure -- so if your expecting a Go-Go's album be open and very prepared. 'Jezebel' and 'La Vie En Rose' are destined to be dance classics in the vein of 'La Luna', with an assortment of gripping, unforgettable ballads to balance out this release, including 'Contact' a space-aged, new wave, 'Automatic' sounding gem. Everyone 'Voila' (look here); Belinda is back!

Well worth it!!

What an excellent surprise. Carlisle proves she's grown up but still has the beat. Great songs and excellent production. Most of all Belinda is in great voice here. A must for old fans and new fans alike!

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....
