Michel by Mathieu Boogaerts
Mathieu Boogaerts has gained new artistic freedom on "Michel". He believes that once you have done everything right, you can afford to make mistakes again. "Michel" is indeed flawless. Soft, haunting and romantic in tone, crystal clear, almost transparent in production. Besides the artist himself, Renaud Letang is responsible for this, who has not only looked after stars of the Néo-Chanson scene such as Katerine and Keren Ann, but also international stars such as Gonzales and Manu Chao. "Michel" is a completely decelerated album with a mellow groove. It caused a complete change of Boogaert's image, which some critics had previously unjustly filed as that of a chanson clown. Not only for us"Michel" is a classic of nouvelle chanson.
