Now in her sixties, French pop veteran Véronique Sanson is arguably more popular than she has ever been in her decades-spanning career, having recently completed a two-year sold-out greatest-hits tour, scored an unexpected digital hit off the back of Ely et Lila's chart-topping cover version of "Chanson sur Ma Drole de Vie," and seen rap superstar Jay-Z sample one of her classic songs on his Obama tribute, "History." Released six years after achieving her first number one album with Longue Distance, her 14th studio effort, Plusieurs Lunes, suggests the revival is likely to remain in full swing. Co-produced by Dominique Bertram and Mehdi Benjelloun, its 14 tracks showcase an adventurous spirit lacking in many of her contemporaries, with convincing attempts at worldbeat ("Vols d'Horizons"), Gallic pop/rock ("Tout Depend d'Elle"), and jazz-blues ("Je Me Fous de Tout") sitting alongside the curiosities of the playful circus-themed "Si Toutes les Saisons," the a cappella interlude "Yayabo [aka Yayavo]," and the brief closing instrumental, "Aah…Enfin!" Elsewhere, the melancholic "Qu'on Me Pardonne" is a powerful and emotive nouvelle chanson that alludes to her troubled past, while "Say My Last Goodbye" is a touching duet with son Christopher Stills on a cover of a track from his 2005 self-titled sophomore outing, but it's her embrace of Latin music that proves to be the album's trump card, whether it's the half French/half Spanish-sung bossa nova of "La Nuit Se Fait Attendre," the flamenco-tinged lounge-pop of "Je Veux Être un Homme," or the seductive Latin funk of "Cliques-Claques." A confident comeback from an artist who is belatedly hitting her prime, Plusieurs Lunes is an impressive lesson in how to remain relevant while still growing older gracefully. ~ Jon O'Brien

Taken from a concert in the summer of 1994, this album serves as an excellent career overview for singer/songwriter Véronique Sanson. Her gorgeous pop songs are performed by a number of guest musicians, including Marc Lavoine, Alain Chamfort, Michel Fugain, and others. But each song features Sanson somewhere, whether on keyboards or backing vocals or even right out in front singing. Her songs are given a moodier, more modern approach by the musicians here, creating some new versions of songs that were previously hindered by their dated production. Overall, this is a very rewarding concert that pays tribute to an excellent musician who has gone too long without international credit. ~ Bradley Torreano
