When this cd came out, I thought: Having all of her albums, will this one be worth buying??...and having indulged in finally buying it, in spite of its expensiveness, the answer is YES!!, no regrets at all....this release is worth every dollar!
Featuring most of her greatest songs on this double cd collection makes the album really a must!... Both cd's have been constantly played in my stereo, discman and car, especially cd number two, which includes three new gorgeous never-released-before songs, all consecutively released as cd singles in France, most notably "Pardonne-Moi" (the third single), a melancholic, sensuous, lush, ballad in the trend of her latest studio album, the excellent "Innamoramento"...."Les Mots" (the first single), a duo with Seal, sung half in french & english....and "C'est une belle journée" (the second single), a happy, tuneful, infectious pop song, sort of in the style of "L'Histoire D'Une Fee, C'est...", the song Myléne created for the "Rugrats in Paris" soundtrack, which is also included. If you have the chance of watching the videoclips of the three aforementioned singles, they're fantastic (I watched them on TV5's international signal).
Besides, this wonderful collection includes new versions for "Maman a Tort", excellent remastered (but sometimes shorter) versions of "Beyond my Control", "Je t'aime Melancolie", et al....and such rarities, not included in her studio albums, like "Effets Secondaires", which ends with "great sound effect", "A Quoi Je sers", "La Veuve Noire".....
The CD Booklet has great photos of Mylene in various moods....In all, you won't be disappointed, a great experience. Buy it!!

For those of you who are familiar with Mylene Farmer, one of France's most popular pop singers, no introduction is required. At times compared to everyone from Kate Bush to Tori Amos to Madonna, Mylene's lyrics are poetic and unique, while the music is lush, well-produced, and varied euro-pop.
"Le Mots" is a greatest hits collection of sorts, remastered material starting with her first 1985 single, as well as some new and rare material on disque 2. The title track is a very good bilingual duet with British singer Seal.
I recommend this set for anyone with an interest in Mylene but who doesn't own her CDs; for the diehard Mylene fan there's new stuff and some wonderful photos.

I'm very pleased at this one.
C'est une bonne chose, Mylene. Merci pour la musique et amour!
(translation): I'ts a good thing, Mylene. Thank you for the music and love!
Not only is the track list well chosen, but the photos are absolutely amazing. They reveal a side of Mylene which she hasn't shown too much. LES MOTS takes us down the long, successful road of the sexy, 41 year old french bombshell's career.
With 30 songs old and new, this re-mastered collection introduces 3 new songs which are amazing. I love (Les Mots)Duet with Seal. Who'd ever think 2 such wonderful artists from 2 entirely different worlds of music would come together on LES MOTS?
The 14th song on disc 2 is from a more or less "rare to find" single cd. I'm glad they put it on LES MOTS.
With this collection, you don't really have to buy Mylene's other CDs because all the good stuff is here.
...I won't bother talking about all the tracks, because they are all equally good. There's a song for everyone, young and old, dancy or serious. The whole collection is based on a more upbeat feeling though! Here is where my next point comes into say...
And here it is!
Mylene and Laurent Boutannat should have included these songs: (Pas le temps de vivre), (Deshabillez-Moi), (Dessine-moi un mouton) and (Allan).
The collection is still great though.
Now, about the book interior. Well...the interior is amazing and it captures the "shy, yet playful PlayBoy Bunny" side of Mylene.
The photos inside the actual loose cd sleeve are rare, stunning and seem to relate to a clean yet seductive flick she made.
I think that seeing these photos, it says she can do anything she wants. Acting looks easy for her.

Forget Celine Dion, Lara Fabian and the wailing French clones. Mylene is the greatest French female vocalist of modern times: she has it all. A provocative, sexy image (wouldn't we all like to look as good as her at 41??), a unique, crystal-clear voice, controversial lyrical themes sung over catchy dance beats and beautifully produced electronic backing tracks. The best tracks here are "Tristana", "Desenchantee", "Regrets", "Je Te Rends Ton Amour"... OK, all of them! Language is no barrier to great music - and if you only own one French language CD, then make it this one.

I only knew 2 of mylene's songs that I heard on a european ststion when I was in medical school, I thought she was great!. But by no stretch of immagination did I think she had this massive great talent as a singer and song writer!
I admit I am still overwhelmed by the double CD set, I'm lost for words to describe the impact this album has on me.

There are 30 magnifisant songs, I can't say that one is better than the other , She will take you on a journey of ballades, pop and nearly classic on occasions.

I can't get over the beautiful ballade "pardonne-moi", where she sings her emotions out to princes of different countries, without having to shout or squeele like others do, you can feel the true emotion and the glory of her singing and writing talents, My God!!!!, it's mind blowing, also"les mots" such a beautiful ballade and one of my favourites has to be "Je te rends ton amour", the clarity and beauty of her voice and the beautiful music of Lourent Boutonant makes an unmissable piece of art!
And on a sunny day or a night out and in the car, "Sans cotrefacon" and "Pourvu qu'elle soint douce" are a great example of how far her talent goes for feel good probably danceable (for those who dance) pop music.

The sound quality and the grace and glory of her voice places her on top of my list of favourite singers, she is number one! and I'm talking about english and french singers!

If you don't have any french CD's start with this , you won't be able to get it out of your head.
