Her first album, 'Biographe de Luka Philipsen' was definitely a surprise hit that I stumbled upon by mistake (trying to find alternative versions of 'Aeroplane' by Red Hot Chili Peppers, I accidentally download miss Ann's version of the song). 'Biographe' contains some very good songs that fall on scales that are not repetitive in the music biz.
'La Disparition' is not as powerful nor unique as 'Biographe,' however the album continues to prolong the unique and subtle energy of the very talented Keren Ann. The beauty of Keren Ann's music falls on the simplicity of the songs... often imagined as a young girl emotionally driven and singing out of her bedroom to the world around her.
The theme from 'La Tentation' is heard again in the final song 'La Dispiration.' A very cute French song, the melody sounds like a child's song rehearsed in pre school. 'Au coin du monde' sounds like Kansas' "Dust in the Wind" on guitar. Other songs are mellow and fall in the 'Biographe' tradition.
Overall the album is good but not as good as the previous hit. Recommended songs include: 'La Disparition,' 'Aielleurs', and ' La corde et les chaussons.'
