Les Disques Du Crepuscule
JULIE DELPY - Julie Delpy . CD
If your idea of "music" is 120 db electric guitars and incoherent lyrics, this isn't for you. Fascinating that there are only extremes in opinion on this CD. I had never really heard of Julie before "Before Sunset," but I liked the song in the movie and went out of my way to buy the CD. No, she doesn't screech or yell, she sings softly and intimately--as in the movie. Several of the songs are very catchy, and all of them are pleasant...you can actually understand all the words, and they make sense. The songs are romantic (certainly not depressing), and the music is melodic. I've played it several times in a row some days and find it doesn't get boring, as some music does. I'm afraid I can't hear the missed notes, either--sounds fine to me; she may reach a bit, but that adds to the charm for me. She sounds very sexy. Of course, I really loved the "Ketchup Song," too, but what's not to like? Isn't music supposed to be fun? Julie can come sing at my house any time.
