Format: Audio CD
Benjamin Biolay's impressive work as an independent singer-songwriter continues on his supposed magnum opus "La Superbe", released on October 19, 2009. This isn't quite a classic as either "Negatif" or "Rose Kennedy", in my opinion, but its still quite an achievement, especially since his last two albums "Trash Yeye" and "A La O'rigine" weren't quite up to par.

I maintain that Biolay's best work came on "Negatif", a double CD from a few years ago that contains his best work thus far. What he excelled at - spoken word singing, lounge atmospheres, and interesting song samples (including Marilyn Monroe, if some of you will remember) has been changed around a little bit here in favor of more variety - in the sense that there are elements of jazz, funk, reggae, electronica, and ballroom present in spades on this recording. This isn't essentially a bad thing, but I did find the production to be a couple notches less than on "Rose Kennedy", which is unacceptable coming so long into his career.

Guest stars, including the irrepressible Jeanne Cherhal (on loan from Tot ou Tard), and even Valerie Donzelli, make this an affair to remember. Biolay also sounds much like Vincent Delerm on this recording, in the aspect of nostalgia and rememberance (which remains Delerm's forte as witnessed on his latest "Quinze Chansons").

But its all a bit much to take in. On "Negatif" (another sprawling double disc that remains one of the best French albums in existence, literally), the album flowed effortlessly with every song working as a seamless transition into the other.

Very interesting compositions and impressive voice. Would recommend this and similar CDs to those who appreciates French music in style of "Paris After Dark"
