IRM, Charlotte Gainsbourg

BEST OF 2010

Charlotte Gainsbourg may be one of the coolest people alive these days. She's creating amazing films (Anti-christ, I'm Not There, The Science of Sleep) and now an incredible album.

Her previous album, 5:55, I thought was a little too soft. More like a spoken word whisper album. Very pretty, but little reason for many repeat listens. But, IRM is packed with lovely little songs.

Perhaps, it isn't Gainsbourg's cool factor, but Beck's ability to produce a really pulled together album (as he worked very closely with Gainsbourg throughout the creative process of this record).

The album stands on solid ground with the perfect single 'Heaven Can Wait' and the fantastic music video which accompanies the song: .
