    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.

  1. Like most tribute albums, Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited is a rather hit and miss affair, but it may just persuade people to rediscover a man who was somewhat misunderstood throughout his life.
  2. With a more imaginative compiler--and fewer Big Names whose fame peaked years ago-- Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited could have turned out so much different.
  3. '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.
