5.0 out of 5 stars Catchy, hopeful, sweet February 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I encountered Carla Bruni pretty much by chance, because somebody happened to mention listening to the song "Quelqu'un M'a Dit" on the radio and he asked me to translate it since I speak French. I am so glad he asked this favor of me, because the song is now one of my favorites. It is incredibly beautiful in a mellow, hopeful, and loving way. Definitely a song I never mind having stuck in my head. After hearing that, I decided I wanted to hear more of Carla Bruni's work. While "Quelqu'un M'a Dit" is still probably my favorite song on the CD, I love the entire thing. There is some great variety. Some of the music is more upbeat. You can definitely enjoy the CD if you don't speak French (several of my friends are now addicted to her music even though they don't know what she's singing), but if you do speak French, it's an even better treat. I adore her lyrics. They are very catchy, meaningful, and clever. I highly recommend this CD!

4.0 out of 5 stars If you're thinking of buying this CD, do it already! November 18, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I love this album. Carla Bruni has one of the most delicious and sensual voices I've ever heard. The songs on this album are little more than that gorgeous voice against the light strumming of her acoustic guitar. It feels so intimate to listen to, as if she's whispering these songs live right in front of you. Such a refreshment from much of the new crop of singers who require massive studio production just to get out a good sounding song. The lyrics are absolutely beautiful as well, like poetry. Cheers to Carla Bruni, who even as an Italian can sing French in the most beautiful and soft of accents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life is unfair, isn't it October 3, 2003
By Megami
Format:Audio CD
Free-spirited and girly, yet sexy and passionate, this is a great album from Carla Bruni. I first heard this in a Youth Hostel in Lyon, and it is still on regular rotation now i am at home. Not only is Carla Bruni a beautiful model, but she is also a talented musician, singing and playing guitar on this album, as well as writing much of it herself. You don't need to know French to appreciate this album, as its (mainly) happy mood will take you to the cafes of France on its own. Well worth searching for.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not particularly original, but enjoyable and easy. December 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have always been a fan of the "French Chanteuse" tradition, and it is nice to see some new women singers evolve in the style of such women as Barbara--whom I unconditionally adore! Consequently, Bruni's c.d. is a new essential in my collection.

However, I am inclined to agree with some of the less than glowing reviews concerning Bruni as an "artist." The music on the c.d. can be monotonous, and her singing style is wearing after 12 tracks. To hear Bruni whisper through a song, and then to hear a singer such as Keren Ann...let's just say, in my humble opinion, that they are not in the same league. Keren Ann is an "artist." Barbara is an "artist." Bruni is trying really hard. Not that that's a bad thing....

For the most part, the songs I most prefer are the ones that Bruni did not entirely write herself. "Quelqu'un m'a dit," "La Noyee" et "Le Ciel Dans Une Chambre" are wonderful! I listen to them constantly, and they alone make this album worth the purchase. As to the others...well, how many of us really love every song on every c.d. we buy?

Whether or not Carla Bruni remains of political interest, chances are you have probably heard her name before. This, her debut album, recorded when she was in her mid-30s, is the French Equivalent of Norah Jones "Come Away With Me". In fact, that Norah Jones connection will haunt you through this recording, as both in song choice and delivery, Bruni is one of those rare animals that get better with repeated listening.

The title song, "Quelqu'un m'a dit" is easily the best thing here. No opening strums, no grand instrumentation - just a womans' husky voice and a guitar set the mood perfectly. This is the ultimate 'wine' album. Listening to the new Vanessa Paradis record, I was reminded that very few French language singers (perhaps for the exception of Charlotte Gainsbourg, and to an extent, Keren Ann) choose to use one genre of music on their albums and conform to it. Bruni is definitely one for this, as her albums' songs all have a 'sameness' to them. This does not mean that they all sound the same - rather, the tempo and musical genre is the same throughout - and this is a good thing.

My personal favorite is the underrated "Le Toi Du Moi", a beautiful song whose word play reminded me very strongly of Jeanne Moreau's "La Tourbillon de la Vie". This track is maddeningly addictive and achingly beautiful, and if you do decide to get this album, I can guarantee that you will be playing this song for years to come.

The tempo only really changes towards the end of the album on one track - "L'Excessive", where they go for a more jazzy, bluesy feel combined with a beat that is definitely more sprightly than anything else here. The inspired closer "The Last Minute" is exactly a minute long - and works great in this context.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't hate her because she's beautiful.. November 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Really, now. Who'd have thunk a super model could sing?

But shockingly this is a super album. Have you seen Casablanca? The scenes in Rick's where the French chanteuse (Corinna Mura) sits on the high stool in the spot light with only a guitar and laconically lays it on the crowd? And then passionately belts La Marseillaise out for the delectation of the SS? That's who Mlle. Bruni reminds me of. Not because Corinne & Carla sound particularly alike, mais parce qu'elles sont toutes deux filles francaises avec guitares, rien d'autre, each laying it down atmospheric. No flipping of the proverbial bird at goose stepping fascists, here, tant pis.. but Miss Bruni would if she could.. I feel it in my marrow, cartilage flowing flush..

Ahem.. ah, Well, I cannot of course gainsay those here who dislike this album, or who else damn it with faint praise.. De gustibus non disputandem est, afterall. Some complain some of her songs sound too alike. Mais apres on boit quelques verres.. mixed with some (say) Keren Ann (who is just as fantastique as all the others here say,) Trenet, Gainsbourg, Piath, Comme d'habitude, and as Frank would likely say, it all just swings, baby.

As for the songs: the title "Quelqu'un M'a Dit" is exquisite. But "Le Toi Du Moi" is as fantastic. I was driving lost for several hours on service roads in Pike National Forest in the Colorado Rockies the other day, fording streams, inhaling clouds of red dust, all the while grooving to her repeatedly. Nigh perfect ironic symbiosis of song and setting. Check these lyrics: "Tu es l'envie et moi le geste.. Toi le citron et moi le zeste.. Je suis le the, tu es la tasse.. Toi la guitare et moi la basse.. Tu es la Belle et moi la Bete.. Tu es le corps et moi la tete.. Tu es le corps.. Yumm!
