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 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.

Bruni manages, as always, to put together an enchanting series of songs that set a mood and make great background music. I don't think this is as atmospheric as her prior album, Quelqu'un ma dit, but it is along the same lines. The same problems remain, too. Bruni either can't really sing or won't. Often, this chanteuse chants, in essence, with a few notes tossed in here or there to maintain a melodic line. That tendency, if anything, is not quite as bad as on Quelqu'un Ma Dit, but it still defines the album. Overall, this is pleasant, to be sure, but it is repetitive and Bruni clearly has nothing else to say after Quelqu'un ma Dit. If you have that, there is no real reason to buy this. It's pretty clear nothing is going to be new, too.

This album is just okay for me. Carla is just an okay singer. I think she misses the mark on a couple of songs on this CD. There is one track I cannot stand to listen to because it sounds like fingernails on a blackboard.

Who'd thought I'd ever have a Carla Bruni CD? I knew her as France's first lady and as a former model and heart breaker of rock gods but was never particularly interested in her music until I heard it played at a salon. I really like each song and I'm surprised. Even if you don't understand French, you can appreciate this music.

I enjoy the music of Carla Bruni. This album contains enjoyable music and is very pleasant to listen too. She has a great voice. French music is different from American pop and has a very distinctive sound. I don't understand the words, but that does not matter, you just feel the music and enjoy it.
