Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Rarely does an album come along that touches everyone who listens to it, even those that do not speak the language in which it was recorded. Quelqu'un M'a Dit, the first album from the acclaimed French singer-songwriter, Carla Bruni, captures you with the first note and leaves you humming the last. With a band led by ex-Telephone guitarist Louis Bertignac, the Franco-Italian beauty sings of love and loves lost with the ability to evoke powerful images across any language barrier. V2. 2005.
Originally best-known as an Italian-born model who had affairs with Mick Jagger and Eric Clapton, Bruni has matured into a remarkably talented and self-possessed singer-composer-guitarist. Her debut album, sung mostly in French, could best be described as neo-chanson. Bruni's whispery, wobbly, husky voice, wryly deadpan delivery and introspective lyrics recall Francoise Hardy, Barbara, Jane Birkin and Nico. But unlike her forebears, who so often posed as waif-like child-women and doormat-like victims of passion, Bruni remains firmly on top. Her lyrics can and do celebrate true love but she also praises the delights of female sexual empowerment in no uncertain terms, as on J'en Connais ("I've Known A Few"). Musically, the tunes range from folk Français to echoes of le jazz hot to bluesy torch numbers. The spare, mostly acoustic instrumentation is unfussy and atmospheric, while the I-couldn't-care-less ambience is occasionally punctuated by chimes, insouciant whistling or an impudent, sly giggle. --Christina Roden
