"Superb lyrics and melodies. One of the finest voices of Brittany." Trad Magazine

"A magnificent voice backed by powerful yet simple arrangements
make for a subtle and joyful performance: Jolie Vilaine has it all."

"One just has to sit back and bask in this aural beauty.
No one should be surprised if Jolie Vilaine turn out to be
the strongest influence in Breton music this decade."

"If you are interested in the Breton musical tradition, this is a chance to see its Cinderella,
the Pays Gallo, regains its right to feel Breton but speak French and this is an interesting story.
If you like jazz, this record offer long hours of concentration
as you decipher all the little nuances exhibited in the chord changes.
If you are more interested in the wilder, rockier side of the Breton scene
then you might want to find something with more angst.
These musicians have no axes to grind, no rage to express, only love in its many guises."
