Carla Bruni - L'excessive

Okay, I'll admit everything: I die every time I hear Carla Bruni. The album version of L'excessive - I swear I listen to it every single day. It is the textures, the simplicity, the emotion. When I heard she was doing an English album I flinched. I didn't go out and buy it on January 15. Now I realize I was wrong. Very wrong. The difference between her first album, Quelqu'un m'a dit, and her new one, No Promises, is night and day. She actually got better. Much better. I am blown away, absolutely blown away. There are reasons why it's number 27 on the world charts. I need it. Now.
