10/10: Best French albums of the decade (7)
Anna Maria from Sweden, a regular guestposter on FS, counts down her faves. Mylene Farmer is pictured (no. 3)
1 Vanessa Paradis - Divine Idyllle (2007)
Peaceful and cute songs by mrs Depp. She has reason to be content.
2 Claire Diterzi - Tableau du chasse (2008) Inventive and lovely songs. The French Kate Bush? Quite possibly.
3 Myléne Farmer - Avant que l’ombre (2005)
Still haunting and has some of her best work in years.
4 Coeur de Pirate - Coeur de Pirate (2008)
So sweet and so cute, a real gem of a debut.
5 Emily Loizeau - Pays sauvage (2009)
Fabulous and kinda exotic music.
6 Emilie Simon - Emilie Simon (2003)
Bubbly and fun electro pop debut. Has a fab rendition of an Iggy Pop song, while not French it’s still a hoot.
7 Lo Polidoro - Le carrousel de jours
Classic yet new chansons by a promising singer.
8 Coralie Clement - Bye bye beauté (2005)
Wonderfully laidback songs and superb fille singing.
9 Benjamin Biolay - Trash yé yé (2007)
The crown prince of new chanson at his elegant and seedy best.
10 Raphael - Caravane (2005)
Charming pop/rock with neat singing.
