    Another impressive feather in one of the most versatile caps in Parisian pop music.

    Tellier’s Confection is an experimental anthology. It’s not entirely what you might expect, and there’s no doubt it won’t be to everyone’s taste.

    The soulfulness and melancholy of these songs make them special among Tellier's body of work, giving more depth to Confection than might be expected.

    It’s skillfully realised, but feels like a soundtrack missing a movie.

    Another French fancy, then, though one likely to appeal only to those with more rarefied tastes. [Jan 2014, p.127]

    If there are faults with the record (aside from the mis-step of the fairground organ-esque 'Waltz), it's that while it works well as an album, it almost works too well with tracks all-too-often passing without leaving a lasting impression, with some of the shorter songs not always being given the space and time to develop as you'd perhaps expect them to.

    An interesting listen, sure, but one that lacks the necessary direction.
