This record is ambitious, you certainly can’t deny that one and Wainwright pulls each song off so perfectly it will completely overwhelm you.
Wainwright’s voice, though nowhere near as distinguished as Piaf’s, is strong and powerful yet tender and gorgeous at the right moments. Her French singing voice is also just incredible and you don’t need to know a word of French to appreciate this. You’ll be left with your chin on the floor by the end of this record.
