This is Lio's sixth album, originally released in 1991, now remastered and reissued with five bonus tracks by Ze Records. The electro-pop Lolita, French chanteuse and can-can diva travelled to London to record Des Fleurs Pour Un Caméléon which was produced under the general direction of famous French singer/producer Etienne Daho. The album is clearly influenced by the English pop-rock style of that time. Lio's performance on this record is tinged with soft and deep intonations, colored by her famous "joyful despair" approach. Without overshadowing her protégée's performance, Daho's universe is omnipresent: keyboards and guitars harmoniously intermingle until they reach a flawless climax and melodies are catchy without being oversweet. Lio's smoother voice perfectly compliments this atmosphere, whether it is on the electric "Je Me Tords," or the cover of "Girl From Ipanema," and the touch of producer Daho is impeccable, along with the collaboration of artists like Gota and Jacques Duvall. Des Fleurs Pour Un Caméléon wasn't as commercially successful as some of its predecessors, but sometimes, the chameleon is doing its job so perfectly that it remains unnoticed.
