Product Description

Amazon.ca

Auréolé du prix de l'Eurovision pour "Poupée de cire, poupée de son", chantonnée par France Gall, Serge Gainsbourg s'est éloigné du cabaret de ses débuts et de l'influence de Boris Vian. Alors que la génération des yé-yé et les tenants de la "nouvelle vague", chère à Richard Anthony, se retrouve dans les affres sentimentales de Françoise Hardy, il traverse la Manche pour travailler avec Arthur Greenslade et David Whitaker. Année 1968, pas vraiment érotique, il sublime sa fatale rencontre avec Brigitte Bardot, sex symbol bottée "jusques en haut des cuisses". Sans tambour mais avec trompettes, il décortique les initiales de sa dame de coeur "Initials B.B." qui l'accompagne d'ailleurs sur le légendaire "Bonnie and Clyde" (que le jeune rappeur Mc Solaar n'oubliera pas de sampler presque trois décennies plus tard). Gainsbourg pratique l'onomatopée "Comic Strip", agite quelques clochettes "Bloody Jack" et fantasme sur les bottines de Barbarella "Qui est In Qui est out". En pleine beatlemania, il oublie avec Anna et Marilu l'assassinat de Kennedy et les désastres de la guerre du Viêtnam et se coule avec élégance dans un décor de science-fiction et de bande dessinée. --Sabrina Silamo

4.0 out of 5 stars Sexy French great is perfectly depicted here Jan. 26 2004
By Max - Published on Amazon.com
(Note: not that it matters, but if it were possible, i'd give this release 4.5 out of five.)
This music is incredibly sexy. But what else can you expect from the same man to bring "Je t'aime moi non plus"? The title track is the strongest track, by far, it opens the CD very well, but kind of makes the rest disappointing. The music is incredible, but it's way too happy to suit me (i.e. "Comic Strip", "Shu ba du ba loo ba"). This album is intensely ecstatic. If you're interested in music for the fun of it, buy this album, by all means, but don't expect to be blown away by vastly unimaginabe soundscapes... Look to Sigur Rós or some koto music for that.
