Format: Audio CD
There's every reason to pay attention to Lou Doillon.

She's the daughter of Jane Birkin (yes, the inspiration for the Birkin bag.) Her half-sister is Charlotte Gainsbourg. She started acting at 5, and has appeared in 80 movies. Tall, stick thin, she is the face and muse of Givenchy. And, last year, at 30, she launched a music career with a CD called "Places," which astonished its creator and the French audience alike when she was named best female performer of the year at Les Victoires de la Musique, the French equivalent of the Grammys.

"Places" deserves every superlative you can think of. And not only because it's an astonishing debut. It's music that comes from a deep place. A place that, if you've had a romance or three, you know very well --- these songs are about longing, regret and desperation. Mostly, I think, desperation, which is, for Doillon, the inevitable result of a primal need for connection that comes close but always seems to miss. The upside: the modest hope that if we name the pain it will dissipate and we might do better next time.

Doillon's voice is a marvel. On first hearing, you think she's gone to school on Amy Winehouse, but you very quickly move on to Billy Holliday and Nina Simone. And in the lyrics and the measured cadence, Leonard Cohen. An early memory: "I'm in my father's car at age 9 or 10 crying to Leonard Cohen's `Famous Blue Raincoat,' thinking that you could write nearly a love letter to a man who betrayed you by having an affair with your wife. I was thinking how wonderful and pure music can be for explaining situations." (Age 9 or 10? Well, her father is a film director. And French.)

The CD begins with "ICU," which she calls "a sad song for sad girls.

This is a beautiful and interesting CD. I am surprised we have not heard more about it in the US. Her voice is pure, unique, strangely calming and harmonizes perfectly with the words and music. I love all the songs. My only critical comment is the song "Places" sounds a little too much like Patti Smith's "Horses". Interesting they named the CD after this song. My favorite is the first song, "ICU". A song about longing for a relationship past..."All that is left now are my dreams and memories but I'm glad you came through my life and put your stain on me". We've all be there.

Fabulous debut album by singer Lou Doillon, daughter of Jane Birkin and sister of Charlotte Gainsbourg.
A stunning cd that is well worth buying. You won't be disappointed. Every track is strong with ICU and Places being the stand-outs.

I love this disc - the melancholy sounds and lyrics speak to anyone. It's a beautiful disc to add to the collection. She's fantastic live and a very interesting interview.
