"... an album of extraordinarily masterful music ... the most consistently convincing work of his life, conveying fluctuating moods against a breadth of style with outbreaks of fuzz guitar, one or two bars of blues piano, briefly sweeping strings, lightheaded pop bliss, funky eroticism and a sense of impending doom ... anyone with an interest in hearing a blueprint for trip-hop or a master class in the depiction of desire in pop music, should be sure to listen to this mysterious, timeless, contradictory album." - PopMatters.com This 1971 release from Serge Gainsbourg is considered one of his greatest and most influential; certainly one of his most adventurous. A concept album that tells the story of an accidental meeting with a teenage Melody Nelson and the romance that follows, this was named by Rolling Stone France as the fourth greatest French rock album of all time.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
