yann tiersen (1)

the amélie ost is very worthwhile. i’ve been listening to it on my way to work, and i agree with the reference to tiersen being the french nyman. there are lots of similarites with nyman; some tracks you could swear to that they’d been composed by nyman. and yes, it’s very french. it’s got that french joy-of-living (savoir vivre) aspect to it, to which the use of the accordion certainly contributes

i’ve ordered two other tiersen albums from amazon.fr (le phare & l’absente), and you might be interested in ordering the older tiersen albums from them, since they’re on sale: 9 EUR. never mind the french, just enter ‘yann tiersen’ in the search box (recherche rapide)

(incidentally, here’s my wishlist @ amazon.fr)
