Product Description

Reissue of his 1973 release featuring 24 bit remastering, original artwork & rare photos. 2001.

Amazon.ca

C'est un Gainsbourg en total état de grâce artistique (avec Melody Nelson) et sentimental (avec Jane Birkin) qui signe, en 1973, cet album soigné, léger et intemporel. Si l'autodérision de la pochette, sur laquelle il mêle son portrait à celui d'une ribambelle de singes, frappe tout d'abord, c'est la grande classe de "Je suis venu te dire que je m'en vais", subtil et atmosphérique, qui cueille l'auditeur dès le début. Un grand classique, un slow ravageur, sentimental et sombre, suite digne et du même niveau que "Je t'aime, moi non plus" avec lequel il triompha en France et outre-Manche quelques années plus tôt. La suite perd en gravité ce qu'elle gagne en légèreté. Elle est ponctuée d'histoires sensuelles (et sans suite), caressant exactement là où ça excite, avec un vocabulaire évocateur, référencé, frôlant parfois une certaine vulgarité, sans jamais y succomber. De "Panpan cucul" à "Des vents, des pets, des poums", en passant par "Titicaca" et "Pamela popo", Gainsbourg forge avec conviction et opiniâtreté une certaine facette de son image vaguement décadente. Il vient d'ailleurs de publier, en duo avec Jane, "La Décadanse", qui en dit déjà assez long sur ses préoccupations. Mais on prend tout ça en vrac, avec une certaine indulgence, et on s'amuse avec lui de l'auto-complaisance du maître pour ces exercices de style. Musicalement parlant, tout est parfait. Enregistré comme d'habitude en Angleterre, Vu de l'extérieur reçoit dès sa sortie un excellent accueil critique, que ne dément pas une écoute actuelle. Intemporel et unique en son genre, il fait plus que mériter le détour : il se déguste avec un plaisir sans cesse renouvelé, aussi frais qu'à sa sortie de cuisine. --Sylvie Devilette

a mellower side of Serge April 26 2001
By dj_dubious - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ok after all the talk these days of the legendary weirdness of Serge Gainsbourg it's nice to kick back and listen to this great little record... This is definatly Serge's most mellow and laid back offering... the sound is a very pleasant mixture of mellow guitars , electric pianos and simple (but funky) beats... over which the always sauve and soothing Serge drops his smooth lyrical flow. The band is the legendary crack Brittish Dewolfe studio group of Alan Hawkshaw and Alan Parker (who also worked on L'homme a Tette de Chou) so everything is impecably played and with the requisite amount of tweaked funkiness... just on a more mellow style... needless to say its still a very very satisfying and diggable spin...

Must have release! Oct. 11 2007

I can't believe no one has reviewed this yet?? For those new to,and interested in hearing Serge Gainsbourg,may be somewhat intimidated by the breadth of his back-catalog,let me offer this: He had a long and varied career,like many musicians,with many different "stages".This release,along with "Historie Melody Nelson",are in my opinion his two MASTERPIECES and THE place to start your maiden voyage into Serge's musical world.They are both short,but its all about quality not quantity.
Excellent! May 13 2014

As with the rest of his catalogue from the early 1970s, this album too was ignored by the French public when it was originally released, but it has aged gracefully and it is one of his best efforts. Even if you don;'t speak a word of French, the melodies will get to you. Recommended.
My favorite Gainsbourg album. His most solid songwriting if a bit dark at times March 8 2013

This is a solid rock album with many odd instruments. And his lyrics tend to be dark on this album but its still one of my favorites. Worth a listen. Worth the buy. It's solid drums bass piano and guitar.
