  1. The second Yelle album is essential for anyone who appreciates dancefloor-friendly European synth pop.
  2. Mar 28, 2011
    As it is, Yelle will have to settle for having made a merely awesome album instead of double awesome one, which is still pretty awesome when you get right down to it.
  3. The group who has created a sense of hype surrounding their sound did not deliver in comparison to past material that was praised so fondly for their vintage synth-pop sound.
  4. Mar 28, 2011
    Yet due to the combination of the singer's delicate voice and the insistent distance these songs puts across, itself partially a consequence of the language barrier, Budet never seems to develop a definite personality.

    Julie Budet chirps exclusively in French, which helps her Auto-Tuned singsong remain vaguely mysterious, even if her childlike melodies are far simpler than the subtly finessed synths.
  6. May 18, 2011
    Que Veux Tu and La Musique cannily mesh memorable pop hooks and dancefloor energy, but Budet's international aspirations may be offset by her brave, if commercially questionable, decision to sing entirely in French. [May 2011, p.127]
  7. Apr 13, 2011
    Julie Budet's breathy vocals may be a little too Vanessa Paradis, but producers Jean Francois Perrier and Tanguy Destable keep the grooves shiny and the beats sweet. [May 2011, p.103]

    Safari Disco Club is unlikely to find itself in the speakers of many dance parties on this side of the Atlantic in coming weeks.
