    The greatest Serge Gainsbourg album - 50th Anniversary edition with bonus material!

    Serge Gainsbourg's work with arranger Jean Claude Vannier led to Gainsbourg being dubbed the French David Axelrod (!) - the comparison is apt in that there are clear similarities in the leftfield rock-soul-jazz-orchestral pop fusion sound and a similar unsettling hazy melancholia!

    The stand out tracks are the low-slung late night chugging groover 'Melody' and 'Cargo Culte', as sampled by Portishead!
