This review is from: Seul Avec Vous (Audio CD)
In the French speaking world, Garou is well known. For the English market, he is the best-kept secret. Prior to being discovered by Luc Plamondon for the role Quasimodo in "Notre Dame de Paris" which had made Garou an overnight sensation in France, he was happily singing in Quebec bars. In "Seul avec vou", Garou's interpretations of "You can leave your hat on" and "R&B Medley" alone are worth the price. Garou's rough, husky voice has incredible power and range. He is quite adaptable at singing emotional ballads such as "Que L'amour Est Violent", "Je N'attendais Que Vous", "Demande Au Soleil","L'adieu"; R&B songs such as "Unchain My Heart", "Georgia" and "Power of Love" as well as pop tunes such as "Gitan", "Seul", "Au Plaisir De Ton Corps". His unique voice, charisma, naiveté and genuinely down to earth attitude combined together - must be seen to be appreciated. Live shows are simply fantastic!
