Longueur d’ondes | Natasha St-Pier (2006) ★★★★☆
my favorite artist, natasha st-pier, just released new album called longueur d’ondes (wavelength). it seems that japanese has expanded their cultural boundary into the west wider and deeper lately. modonna used japanese word in her song “sorry”, hollywood just made the movie “memoirs of a geisha.” now, the opening song of natasha’s latest album filled with some japanese words in the begining. her music video also looked like she was walking in a japanese garden. :)

all 12 songs are really good. her voice is gentle and wonderful, especially “un ange frappe à ma porte”, longueur d’ondes, “j’oublie” and “à l’amour comme à la guerre” :)
