Media NM
Sleeve VG

Format : LP
Cat N° : 2C 070 72291
Style : Chanson

Gérard Manset’s album following “Royaume de Siam” presents a mix of sentiments. It combines an unusual lightness with insincere tones, reflecting introspection and playfulness. While the album might appear contradictory, it skillfully combines varied musical elements. It touches on grim topics such as genocide in “Manteau Rouge” and the harsh reality of prostitution in tourist areas in “Marin’ Bar.” Amidst the apparent contradictions, Manset briefly unveils the world’s overwhelming beauty in “Les Îles de la Sonde.” This complex album has been both criticized and appreciated for its distinctive essence, offering a unique emotional journey and revealing Manset’s creative brilliance.
