Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Nathalie Matteau has released an ep, and now she’s back with a dynamite full length, with her band.

Her cabaret style is intact, and high jinks ensue.

Clues and Lies is familiar from the ep and it’s still a vampy tale of crime and such with a great vocal.

Get in the Car is swinging and sexy as Matteau gets to the heart of the matter with a powerful song.

Time waits For No Man is splendidly cool, Matteau singing of being a bad girl, which sounds like fun. The band gives her the requisite oompah backing.

La complainte de la Seine is a Kurt Weill song, which is hardly a surprise on this album. It’s spirited and fun too.

Matteau’s made a great debut.
