4.0 out of 5 stars The Return of the Native : Best French Album of the Decade September 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Vanessa Paradis' first album in seven years is a mini-revelation of sorts. For starters, its unlike anything she has ever recorded - compare this to her debut album from 1987 or her "Bliss" album from 2000, and its evident she has worked on her voice, her diction, and her vocal delivery. She has always been my favorite French singer and I've probably collected everything she has ever recorded in her 20 year career, but I have to say that this is by far her most consistent work. Its not as instantly bewitching or memorable as her 1990 album (which still remains my No. 1 Paradis record), but is definitely the best put-together, the best produced, and her best vocal performance to date. The reason why I'm giving it four stars instead of five however, is because its way too short. Seriously. Even before you can settle into the album and enjoy it, its over.

Ironically, the title track "Divine Idylle" is sonically the weakest. It has no memorable chorus other than hand-claps, and isn't very well executed in general. I don't know what they were going for here - at best it sounds like an average musical idea that they stretched out for three minutes. I saw Vanessa performing this recently on a French TV Show - an acoustic segment with Mathieu Chedid, and it was evident that even she was lost on how to perform this live. The entire episode was quite weak - I think this song is the poorest one on the album, and though it does bring back some 1960s summery brightness, its not a full cohesive song by any means.

Thankfully, things only get better from there on. From Track 2 onward, this album keeps hitting you with one quality track after the other, even a few ballads that in the hands of any other songstress would just sound overwrought.

This is an exquisite pop album that oozes nouvelle vague.
Vanessa Paradis is to all intents and purposes the latter-day heiress to the French yé-yé girl tradition of Sixties sirens such as Françoise Hardy and Sylvie Vartan.
Some 19 years after she charmed the pants off the nation with "Joe Le Taxi", aged 14, Vanessa returns to music with a classy and thoughtful collection of French guitar pop.
On her fifth album after a seven year break, she sounds like she's having a ball.
Closer in spirit to her 1992 Lenny Kravitz produced album, "Divinidylle", which topped the French pop album chart last month while creating few ripples elsewhere, is another collaboration this time with fellow French guitar star Matthieu Chedid who also seems obsessed with the past.
The end result is quality songwriting with elements of vintage psychedelia, '70s folk and even cod-reggae seeping through the overall classic pop sheen, not least the sophisticated arrangements with which producer Mathieu Chedid surrounds her sultry low-register vocals on tracks like "Chet Baker" (strings, castanets, subtle slide guitar), "Les Revenants" (languid bass, organ, ondes Martenot and musical saw) and "Irresistiblement" (not the Vartan classic), into whose shuffling groove banjo and jug are seamlessly incorporated.
With the exception of the purposefully sweet title track Vanessa's voice has also matured.
Gone, for the most part, is that squeaky girl next door and replaced with the huskier, world weary voice of genuine passion heard on "Chet Baker".
