love love songs

i just needed to tell you how amazing vanessa paradis new album is! its a double album - mostly written by benjamin biolay - and it's gets better and better with every listen. if you like coralie clement and carla bruni then you will love this. a great mix of sounds over the album too from soft samba, to nick cave-esque death ballads, to love songs.
 
this will be one of the albums of the year.
