5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent
Un excellent best of pour ceux qui veulent découvrir ou redécouvrir Vanessa Paradis.
Ses grands succès sont là, quelques réarrangement plus qu'agréables à écouter (M&J par exemple).
Néanmoins si vous voulez des titres moins connus et des inédits, penchez vous plutot sur le coffret deluxe, vous...

Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Best Of (CD)
A part la pochette de l'album, le reste ne va pas faire d'étincelle et marquer durablement les mémoires des fans de Vanessa Paradis. Aucune originalité dans l'album à part un inédit ! De simples reprises de vieilles chansons qui ont fait son succès qui ne bénéficient d'aucun arrangement acoustique. Mlle Paradis nous donne l'impression qu'elle fait publier ce best-of au moment des fêtes soit pour se faire de l'argent, soit pour montrer à ses fans et aux autres qu'elle fait toujours partie de la variété française. Malheureusement le résultat est nullement à la hauteur de nos espérances et je pense sincérement que son idylle américain n'a fait que tuer la carrière d'une jeune chanteuse en devenir. Mais qui pourrait lui en vouloir car d'après certains magasines people américains, elle est mariée avec l'homme élu le plus sexy de la planête ! Enfin, heureusement que j'ai acheté avant tout cet album pour ma femme et j'espère que celle-ci ne sera pas trop déçue de son pauvre contenu. J'espère que Vanessa Paradis sera prochainement capable de nous fournir un nouvel album en rapport avec ses qualités artistiques car si cette dernière désire encore percer dans le milieu artistique français, il faudra plus qu'un album best-of avec des chansons d'époque non-remises ou remixées avec les sonorités actuelles. A bon entendeur, salut !!!

Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Best Of (2 CD) (CD)
Vanessa Paradis finally claims her rightful place in the canon of recorded French Music with her first ever Greatest Hits Collection. Considering she's been a recording artist for the last twenty years, this was a long time coming. Along the way, she gets to thank Alain Souchon, Jane Birkin, Mathieu Chedid, Serge Gainsbourg, Albin de la Simone, Franck Monnet and Franck Langolff for their indispensable contribution to her amazing catalog, most of which find their way onto this 2-CD set.

To understand Vanessa Paradis' effect on the world of French music, one must travel back to the very beginning, in 1987 when 'Joe Le Taxi' came out and transfixed the world. Unfairly for her, that song is perhaps all she is known for in various parts of the world. Which is why her decision to release this 2 Disc Set of her best and least known track is a wise decision, one that will perhaps finally set to rest doubts about her immense contribution to the world of French music.

Any follower of Paradis' musical output will know that her studio albums are few and far between, and that she barely has any recognizable singles that have 'stood the test of time' with the mainstream commercial audience. My personal choice for her best album is 1990's "Variations sur le meme t'aime", recorded for her by Serge Gainsbourg, which of all her recordings is both the 'oldest sounding' as well as timeless setpieces.

Her return to form in the 2000s with her albums "Bliss" and "Divinidylle" were welcomed, only because of the sheer artistry contained within - for once Vanessa was getting more adventurous and recording songs with different producers. My own opinion is that her work has improved greatly since her involvement with both Mathieu Chedid and Franck Monnet, both of whom are stellar recording artists in their own right.

This double-disc, when first announced, didn't set very well with many long term followers of Paradis' music. Most clearly, it did away with some of the more emphatically essential songs of her catalog - prime amongst these being "Au Charme Non Plus", "L'Amour a Deux", and "Amour Jamais" from 1990's "Variations Sur Le Meme T'aime". Also missing are "L'eau et la vin", "St Germain" and "L'air du temps" from 2000's stunning "Bliss" album. And of course, the fact that they didn't include "Chet Baker" and "Irresistiblemen" from "Divindylle" is just unbelievable - the latter especially was the song Vanessa used to open all her 2008 concerts and has since become a staple.

The reasoning behind this 2 disc set is this - Disc 1 works as a 'Greatest Hits' compilation, collecting all of her 'best' singles onto one disc (since shes been recording for 23 years, there are bound to be omissions). Disc 2 works as a "Rarities, Acoustic, and B-Sides" Compilation. This had the potential to be stunning, but instead comprises of a very weird and bizarre songlist. For example, Paradis won new legions of fans over when she serenaded Jeanne Moreau with her own masterful rendition of "Les Tourbillons de la vie", and she even recorded a classy studio version for the out of print "Mes Chansons Enfances". That song, often considered a mainstay of her concerts, is sorely missing.

The Second Disc also does away with most of her great collaborative work and instead gives us acoustic versions of "Marilyn and John", and inserts "When I Say" (a weak song from 'Bliss') into the mix. While 'Atomik Circus' remains an underrated French science fiction film, they've chosen to disregards its hit single 'Ma Petroleuse' (a moderate hit for Paradis), and pick "Concia" instead. Now listen, all of these songs are beautiful, but if you have a once in a lifetime chance to put together a B-side compilation for Vanessa Paradis, at least they could have put some thought into it.

On the bright side, Disc 2 does include those rare "Edition Noel" tracks that were released for "Divinidylle". These are "I Wouldn't Dare" and "Abracadabra", and the much publicized "I Love Paris" is here as well. While the first set is notably devoid of duets, the second gives us some great songs. First up is the thrilling song with M (Mathieu Chedid). Bless this man for every entering Paradis' musical sphere, as he knows what to do with her even when she is lost. "Johnny Jane", always an oddity even on French TV, was a fun, nostalgic duet between Vanessa and Jane Birkin - a sweet, cloying track that sounds rather out of place in this environment.

Thankfully, we have the little known "Les Filles Electriques", her duet with Alain Souchon, to balance things out. One of the most underrated album tracks from 1987's "M&J" album was "Scarabee", a lush piece that sounded almost Beatlesque in patches. This has now been given the 'acoustic' treatment and sounds even better than before. I like that the album ends with the hugely unknown "Varvara Pavlovna" (this was originally the B-Side to the LP of "Joe le Taxi" in 1987 and is now officially out of print!), so its great to have this rarity remastered and officially available after almost 22 years.

As any of my acquaintances within the French music world would know, I have long held that the greatest French song ever written would have to be 'Pourtant', from Vanessa's 'Bliss' album. This was written by the amazing Franck Monnet (another underrated singer/songwriter who has four beautiful albums out: 'Playa', 'Les Embellies', 'Au Grand Jour', and 2007's 'Malidor'), and the visual imagery is stark and revealing. The very fact that they included this song (and made it Track 2!) is testament to the fact that some things were done right on this one.

Vanessa Paradis' musical output may not be comparable to lets say Jane Birkin, Julien Clerc, or Serge Gainsbourg, but at the very least she has carved out a wonderful niche for herself in the world of French music. Any Paradis enthusiast should pick this one up, and if you haven't heard her music yet, this is indeed the best place to start. Get this, and then get the remainder of her studio albums.

Five Stars.

Vanessa Paradis' legacy of recorded music finally got their due respect in 2009 with the release of her first Greatest Hits Collection. Having debuted in the late 1980s, Vanessa has been a recording artist for 20+ years now, a fact not lost upon the compilers of this new collection.

To understand Vanessa Paradis' effect on the world of French music, one must travel back to the very beginning, in 1987 when 'Joe Le Taxi' came out and transfixed the world. Unfairly for her, that song is perhaps all she is known for in various parts of the world.

My own opinion is that her work has improved greatly since her involvement with both Mathieu Chedid and Franck Monnet, both of whom are stellar recording artists in their own right. With the assistance of Mathieu on her Divinidylle Tour, it was evident that her sense of expression, creativity, as well as stage presence had vastly benefited from these alliances. And while Vanessa had never been one to shy away from an audience, the 2008 tours only proved how versatile and shape-shifting she could be whilst on the stage. Credit Albin de la Simone (on a side note, he is a fantastic performer in his own right with his album "Bungalow") for some of the more incredible things that have happened with Vanessa's musical output over the last three years.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Très déçu, 25 novembre 2009
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Best Of (2 CD) (CD)
J'étais très heureux de pouvoir acheter ce best-of, mais je suis tout simplement très déçu. Pas l'ombre d'une remasterisation, de nombreuses chansons manquantes et, en dehors de l'acoustique géniale de "Marylin et John" ou de l'excellente "Il y a", pas un bonus intéressant. Dans ces conditions, je comprends pourquoi l'album ne fait pas d'étincelles niveau ventes...

Ce n'est pas en " repiochant " dans ses vieux tubes qu'il faut s'attendre à une grande réussite ! J'aime pourtant beaucoup Vanessa , tant pour ses talents de chanteuse , d'actrice et de sa personnalité mais là , je m'attendais à autre chose . Son compagnon Johnny Depp a très probablement fait son bonheur de femme mais il a tué sa carrière . Dommage !
