Album Review
Reviewed 2003-01-06
The gorgeous voice is still there, but he’s strayed far from his mbalax roots. It’s all pretty, but I miss the power of his earlier works. Overdone synths and drum programming don’t help either.

1. Mid-tempo with some nice kora touches.
2. Starts simple, picks up into a light Afro-jazz bounce.
3. Bright and pleasant, a bit too much times.
*4.Mid-tempo, catchy w/a nice simplicity.
*5. Relaxed, bouncy French homage to women.
*6. Nice guitars/bass/perc backing to this happy song
7. French cabaret song w/accordion/drums. It’s ok.
8. World anthem-y sound, but nice instrumental bits at times.
9. Too much programming to this swaying love song.
*10. Uptempo w/fast guitars & drums and cool vocals.
11. Duet w/Pascal Obispo. Pretty, but why?
12. Too synth-y at times, but overall catchy..
13. Overdone ode to Africa.
