Let's stay in Belgium, for Vincent Liben has already made one of the best French language albums of the year. Yes, it's January, I know, but trust me: it won't get much better than this. Liben didn't ring a bell, he's part of the band Mud Flow that I'd never heard of. He's also the producer of the first Marie Warnant album, and frequent FS-visitors must remember that fizzy haired lovely. Tout va disparaitre is Liben's solo offering, with very delicate, well-crafted songs that wink to great French artists like Hardy, Yves Simon and ofcourse Gainsbourg. That said, Liben does have a personal, distinct sound and a warm, darkbrown voice. Serge is very much present when Vincent duets with Stephanie Croibien, an angel with a honeydrenched voice. She sings two solosongs, highlights of the album. Duet 30 Decembre deserves to be a big hit.

    Trop bon! Et en plus il est Belge!
    Chéri Prisunic sera étonné quand il apprend que je connais son pays un petit peu mieux que lui. Merci Guuzbourg!
