Editorial Reviews

Carla Bruni's fourth album that's written and performed in French, English and Italian. It is the follow up to Carla's 2008 critically acclaimed 'Comme si de rien n'etait (As if Nothing Had Happened)' which debuted at #1 in both the Billboard European Top 100 Albums Chart and the French Albums Chart. Bruni's touch is immediately apparent in these new compositions that once again focus on raw emotions and love. This limited edition deluxe version includes the standard album plus 2 bonus tracks, the album as Blu-ray Audio, a DVD featuring 5 music videos from the sessions and a 24 page booklet.

Format: Audio CD
I've not heard Carla Bruni before but tried this out of curiosity, half expecting to hate it. I didn't. It's not a classic by any means but it's a decent enough listen with some atmospheric moments.

The thing is, I've been a bit of a sucker for a slightly husky female French voice singing over an acoustic guitar ever since falling hopelessly in love with Françoise Hardy as a young teenager in the 60s. Now, as a singer Bruni is no Françoise Hardy, and as a songwriter she's certainly no Jaques Brel and but the effect of these well-named Little French Songs is enjoyable and rather evocative. The whole album to me conjures up black-and-white shots of a solitary young woman in a Biba-style mac looking sadly introspective at a pavement café table or walking away from the camera down a deserted and preferably leaf-strewn Paris street. You get the idea - and really only have to look at the cover to see what Bruni is aiming at here.

Bruni's voice isn't a great one but she uses it very well, sticking largely to its stronger lower register and some half-spoken asides which are effective and intimately atmospheric. I found the individual songs pretty forgettable (even Le Pingouin, the -shock! - attack on her husband's political opponent) and I'm not sure how often I will take this album out and play it in the future, but it's a lot better than I'd expected and would make enjoyable, relaxing background music if nothing else. Four stars is perhaps a little generous, but only three seems churlish - 3.5 really, rounded up.

Saw this album on CBS Sunday morning, liked the sound of her voice so bought it. I'm so glad I did! I love to listen to this at work, on the weekends, anytime - her voice conveys love, laughter, a lovely flirtatious wickednes, pure fun! Count me a fan!

One of my favorite musicians. Listening to her always makes me smile. To me it's a mini vacation to France.

I do not understand a single word on this album but it makes me want to learn how to speak and understand French.

I love Carla Bruni's quiet, gentle guitar music and sweet little songs. If you want to remind yourself of a trip to Paris, or are dreaming of one in the future, get this CD and learn the words so you can sing along. It's great fun and may spark a new acquaintance if you start humming the songs when you visit the City of Light.

The cd is everything I expected. I saw her interview on CBS Sunday Morning and couldn't wait to receive the CD. A wonderful addition to my CD library.

Carla Bruni has a great voice and musical talent. I have several of her CDs, and all are very good.
