Carla Bruni is an Italian supermodel and this is her first album. Like Milla Jovovich’s debut, this caught everyone by surprise. It’s a very good effort, far beyond what one would have expected. It’s an acoustic and intimate album, and the songs are from her own harvest. She also plays guitar. The talented French guitarist Louis Bertignac produced the album. Although she’s Italian, most of the album is sung in French with some Italian touches, like in “Le Ciel Dans une Chambre.” The result is a kind and smooth album that mixes folk and chanson Française in equal parts. Although she’s not breaking any new ground, the result is compelling. (by Iván Adaime)
