Surprisingly enjoyable April 22 2013
By Sid Nuncius - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've not heard Carla Bruni before but tried this out of curiosity, half expecting to hate it. I didn't. It's not a classic by any means but it's a decent enough listen with some atmospheric moments.

The thing is, I've been a bit of a sucker for a slightly husky female French voice singing over an acoustic guitar ever since falling hopelessly in love with Françoise Hardy as a young teenager in the 60s. Now, as a singer Bruni is no Françoise Hardy, and as a songwriter she's certainly no Jaques Brel and but the effect of these well-named Little French Songs is enjoyable and rather evocative. The whole album to me conjures up black-and-white shots of a solitary young woman in a Biba-style mac looking sadly introspective at a pavement café table or walking away from the camera down a deserted and preferably leaf-strewn Paris street. You get the idea - and really only have to look at the cover to see what Bruni is aiming at here.

Bruni's voice isn't a great one but she uses it very well, sticking largely to its stronger lower register and some half-spoken asides which are effective and intimately atmospheric. I found the individual songs pretty forgettable (even Le Pingouin, the -shock! - attack on her husband's political opponent) and I'm not sure how often I will take this album out and play it in the future, but it's a lot better than I'd expected and would make enjoyable, relaxing background music if nothing else. Four stars is perhaps a little generous, but only three seems churlish - 3.5 really, rounded up.

One of my favorite musicians. Listening to her always makes me smile. To me it's a mini vacation to France.

Gorgeous! April 23 2013
By Linda S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Saw this album on CBS Sunday morning, liked the sound of her voice so bought it. I'm so glad I did! I love to listen to this at work, on the weekends, anytime - her voice conveys love, laughter, a lovely flirtatious wickednes, pure fun! Count me a fan!

I do not understand a single word on this album but it makes me want to learn how to speak and understand French.

Another lovely collection from Carla May 4 2013
By Polly B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love Carla Bruni's quiet, gentle guitar music and sweet little songs. If you want to remind yourself of a trip to Paris, or are dreaming of one in the future, get this CD and learn the words so you can sing along. It's great fun and may spark a new acquaintance if you start humming the songs when you visit the City of Light.
