Artist: Frou Frou (@)
Title: Details
Format: CD
Label: MCA Records
Newcomers Frou Frou, from France, are an energetic group with lots to offer. Made up of Imogen Heap and Guy Sigsworth, two veterans in the industry, they first collaborated on Imogen's 1998 album "I Megaphone". Guy had worked on other records for other artists before, but was unsatisfied with the results. Therefore, he called up Imogen to sing some tracks for him, and before they knew it they had an album going.From songs such as "Shh" to "Must Be Dreaming", the entire album is reminiscent of days gone by with nostalgic, bouncy beats. The debut album, entitled "Details" is a great mix of modern beats mixed with east Asian and East Indian stylings, and 'Maddening Shroud' is a perfect example of this. Frou Frou does hit the slow-paced road every once in a while though with songs like 'The Dumbing Down Of Love' & 'Old Piano'.If you're looking for an album that can offer you some music that has the ability to get you going in the morning or even relax you at night, Frou Frou has got what you need. Nothing is left to be desired after listening to this album. The wide array of sounds is a tribute to the talent Imogen & Guy posess. Imogen's voice is a perfect fit for the music that Guy produces, and I sincerely hope that there is a follow up album to "Details".
