  1. 'Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited' is an often fascinating and enchanting compilation as these things go, though I say, somewhat predictably, that there's no substitute for the real thing.
  2. The translations offer many witty surprises.
  3. Some tracks, of course, are as sexy as a soggy batch of freedom fries once the words are comprehensible. But the best updates... have a seedy splendor all their own.

    I got this back in May; I think it's quite a noble tribute. Nothing compares to the original of course, but there isn't any I got this back in May; I think it's quite a noble tribute. Nothing compares to the original of course, but there isn't any material included that warrants the criticism of some of these reviews. Franz Ferdinand and Portishead's contributions are particularly notable. I recommend the disc to anyone who's a fan of Gainsbourg or European pop, past and present. Full Review »
