Bernard Lavilliers ‎– 15e Round (1977, Barclay)


Media NM
Sleeve VG+

Format : LP
Cat N° : 90143
Style : Chanson, Prog Rock, Jazz-Rock

A year after “Les Barbares,” Lavilliers’ “15ème Round” shows him in a fighting stance on the cover. The album opens with “Utopia,” a Léo Ferré-inspired monologue, and “Big Brother,” referencing George Orwell’s “1984.” “Juke Box” reveals Lavilliers’ struggle to create light chart-toppers. “L’Amour et la Mort” provides poetic lyrics and subtle violin, but the album sometimes falls into clichés. The rock-driven second side features “N’appartiens jamais à personne” with strong lyrics, while “15ème Round” tells a boxer’s story. “L’Amour qui Marche” feels like filler, and “La danseuse du Sud” introduces exotic influences. The album ends with “Lettre Ouverte,” criticizing the extreme right and Figaro Magazine, featuring a powerful guitar solo. “15ème Round” cements Lavilliers’ image as a tough, big-hearted artist.
