The best Serge Gainsbourg album by miles!
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 track is definitely the low-slung late night chugging groover Melody/Cargo Culte, as sampled by Portishead!
