Best of Vanessa Paradis

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Celeste Rhoads
This comprehensive best-of collection covers all of the French pop diva's major hits from "Joe le Taxi" to the single "Divine Idylle" from her 2007 album. It also includes the seductive "Il Y A," which was previously unreleased. For fans, this is a must-have album -- some may even compare it to Madonna's Immaculate Collection -- and for those who have yet to discover France's biggest pop star, the album is an entertaining journey through French pop from the '80s through the 2000s.
