Reception[edit]

  • Stéréology: Works quite well, as the first song "Mademoiselle Juliette" shows. Alizée with a slightly distorted voice, lots of synthesizers and a beat, then immediately swing dancing leaves. A great pop song that is immediately in the head, and there Ohrwurm pushes his mischief.[11]
