Camille est une étoile filante au firmament de la chanson française. Moitié dingue moitié déchainée, toujours juste et avec une voix qui fait rêver, Camille nous emmène dans son délire musical et enchanteur. Le seul disque de chanson française qui mérite d'être acheté depuis le début du siècle.

HASH(0x99e83eac) out of 5 stars Ground breaking, adventurous with more hits than misses. Nov. 26 2011
By must - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Recorded in a string of unusual locations including three church chapels and Noirlac Abbey, a 12th century Cistercian building located deep in the heart of the central French countryside, Gallic pop maverick Camille's fourth album, "Ilo Veyou", reflects the low-key surroundings of its inception with a sound which playfully toys with the notions of silence and space.
Indeed, it's possible to hear a pin drop on the majority of its 15 tracks, particularly on the Björk-esque, a cappella closer "Tout Dit", which sometimes bravely waits five seconds in-between each of Camille's whispered words; the highly atmospheric, Middle Eastern-tinged "Le Berger", which sees her adopt a Bollywood-style vocal alongside a simple oud arrangement, and the bilingual, hushed melodies of "Pleasure", which are accompanied solely by some echo-laden, muted percussion. While this sparse approach could have turned into a gimmick in lesser hands, Camille's flair for invention ensures the album never turns into a one-trick pony. Renowned for pushing her unique voice to the limits, she continues to weave around the slightly avant-garde production like a chameleon, effortlessly shifting from an Edith Piaf-style chanteuse on "La France", a traditional chanson-style back-handed compliment to her homeland, to sensual seductress on the erotically charged acoustic melancholy of "Wet Boy", to cutesy jazz-pop starlet on the double bass-led theatrics of "Mars Is No Fun", a delightful tale of a traveler who prefers the mundanity of Milton Keynes to the realms of outer space.
Her vocal trickery is so versatile that it's hard to determine whether the children's chorus and male backing vocals on the medieval folk of "Allez Allez Allez", and the title track, respectively, are exactly what they appear to be.
The album's eccentric nature does occasionally veer into novelty territory.
The bubble-popping sound effects and scat vocals on the lullaby-ish "Bubble Lady", and the childlike melodies and twinkling music boxes of "Message" -- both presumably inspired by the birth of her son -- are undeniably enchanting at first, but lose their cute appeal after repeated listens, while the spoken word opener "Aujourd'hui" sounds like the ramblings of a mad woman.
But with such an ambitiously unconventional approach, it's quite an achievement that "Ilo Veyou" contains far more hits than misses. J.O'brien

Maybe this album isn't great as "Music Hole" but Camille is always impressive, the possibility of differents musical discoveries in each album of her is the main reason for me keep pursuing her work, even here in Brazil, where i can't buy her albuns. This is possible thanks to Amazon.
HASH(0x99e8c684) out of 5 stars Innovative and Breathtaking April 5 2012
By Camille - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I very rarely give out 5 stars in any review, but Camille is astounding in this gorgeous album. I have been a fan of Camille since before "Le Sac Des Filles" but to this day I am amazed at how every single album sounds completely different. Camille is known for her beautiful chops and unique approach to music, and "Ilo Veyou" continues on with this theme of vocal experimentation. Many compare her to Bjork; as a fan of both of these innovative women, I'd have to say that, by comparison, Camille is on another level completely as far as pushing the limits with her voice and creativity. This album is remarkable because it incorporates so many different genres and styles into just over a dozen songs.

I know that fans will enjoy the lovely "L'etourderie." The ballad-like "Wet Boy" along with the funky "Mars Is No Fun" and the cutesy "Bubble Lady" are also easy favorites. Those that are big on Parigot street singing will enjoy "La France." There are specific gems for me on this album, but every song is GOOD. How often is anyone able to say that about any album? None of Camille's albums are bad. Not ONE. However, I can say with certainty that "Ilo Veyou" is my favorite after "Le Fil." Even if you don't want to buy it, it's definitely worth the listen.

Camille's voice and singing are fab as always, but there's not much material in the CD, I get the impression of a work in progress -maybe they should have spent more time on it before releasing it.
