Add my praise to the many comments here. This has GOT to be the coolest album ever recorded. It was so ahead of its time its not even funny. Gainsbourg is a superb artist, anything you can find of his is worth listening to, but Melody Nelson is his masterpiece. Its by turns funky, haunting, leering, dirty and beautiful beyond description. The coolness factor on this one is sky high. J'taime ce des disques, son merveilleux!!!

The lazy bassline which bleeds through the speakers to open the album suggest the sophisticated leachery which is to follow. This, of course, is Serge Gainsbourg, the man who, more than anyone else in the music industry, or any industry for that matter, epitomised the shameless romanticism for which the French are known. That he was in fact a Russain Jew by birth is testament to the contradictory nature of this man. Anyway, "Melody", the first track, concerns his first encounter with the eponymous Sunderland-born(!) heroine, and is utterly gorgeous at that. Serge's intimate whisper of a vocal seems to be the loudest thing here, booming over the spare arrangment of guitar, bass and drums, whose graceful funk is elegant while also suggesting the dubious intentions of the singer towards Melody. The addition of the dramatic strings throughout this track is luxuriant and erotic and is possibly one of the greatsest use of a string section in the histroy of rock music: economical, dramatic and emtional. The track is a masterpiece, and worth the price alone. But, as the title suggests, this album is a story, and so it unfolds. The structure of the album is therefore very important. This is why Serge's decision to bookend the album with what are by far and away the longest and also mutually very similar tracks, has the emotional impact it does have. As previous reviewers have noted, this is the story of an old French sleazeball (could it be Serge, I wonder?) in a chance encounter with a young (very young) English girl (Melody). He proceeds to seduce this girl and take her to his special hotel room to have his way with her, before she flies back to England, only for the plane to crash on the way, leaving Melody dead. So a romantic story then, of course with Serge's own twisted sense of humour.Read more ›

Ahh the joy's of the mighty Serge... Unless you've had your head under a rock you've probably been hearing high praise for this record for some time now... hushed wispers of its legendary weirdness... well the word on the street is right my friends.. this is an incredible record by any stretch of the imagination. First up this is basically Serges most "rock" oriented record.. but let me clarify that by saying Serge's take on "rock" is a tweaked out as his take on pretty much everything in life ... so the sound is very weird.. very sparse .. very repetitive.. but at the same time huge and massive (one of the greatest bass tones ever recorded.. and some of the craziest funky drummin' ever) ... then there's the strings which literally sound as if they're bein beamed in from another record somewhere else.. out of this world! ... yeah its as good as everything you've heard about it... and if you've been dissipointed or hesistant to get into Serge I point you in this lil beauty's direction otherwise your missing out on one of the greatest records of all time...

Un plaisir renouvelé. Une video pour nous faire entrer dans le secret, des titres inédits ou en version longue, pour mieux nous faire comprendre la démarche artistique.... on est aux anges ! À voir et à revoir, le témoignage de l'ingénieur du son ainsi que celui de Jean-Claude Vannier, l'arrangeur. 40 ans plus tard, on se replonge avec délectation dans ce chef-d''uvre et les passages de violons, la rythmique et les paroles nous enchantent comme à la première écoute.

Man this is a lecherous record, but lechery never felt so good. This has got to be up there as the coolest half hour of tunes ever made. You must own this. One of the top twenty albums of the 70's for sure. Really creepy but amazing. The sea change comparison is on point, but this album is much less languid, and much more intriguing and exciting. Buy it and creep yourslef out as you think how cool it is.

Franchement, c'est un des meilleurs disques dans ma collection. Achetez-le. Si j'ai du choisir une bande son pour ma vie, c'est ce disque là que je choisirais.
