Is that new Jane Birkin album any good?

It's pretty good. The cover of "mother stands for comfort" is pretty awesome, so is "alice"

Whenever this (Arabesque) comes up on shuffle, I skip it. But somehow I can't bring myself to delete it from my HD...

Fictions isn't as good as Rendez-Vous. But it has some high points -- the Gonzales composition "Living In Limbo" is probably the best original.

Fictions is great! Alice, Waterloo Station, Harvest Moon my faves so far... but loving the simple, lush production, the lightness of her singing. Very confident.

The only musician best known for a purse

To answer the thread's question in 2021: yes, yes it is! Oh! Pardon tu dormais... is her latest, released in December, and it's very good. Wistful, melancholy, with dark and sad lyrics that deal with the death of her daughter Kate Barry, for one. But her music is never hermetic, you find yourself engaged near instantly.

I haven't listened to it but it was produced by Etienne Daho. I've watched an interview of them two recently and they seemed very proud and happy of their work together. Since I like them both a lot I guess I should give this a try !
