The fact that Le Pop 5 continues to have such a fresh and innovative sound is due to the continuing metamorphosis of the strong European music scene. Despite the growing popularity of artists like Dominique A, Mathieu Boogaerts and Benjamin Biolay , they continue to develop their style. This is well demonstrated by Dominique A, pre-cursor of the scene, whose "La Fin D'un Monde" is a beautiful, almost classical melody produced in a fascinating way and creating a perfect ambience for Dominique A's inimitable voice. Mathieu Boogaerts came up with a more radical change: departing from his habitual songwriting technique, he has turned to composing rhythm structures on a drum kit. His song "Allez" exhibits his artful and wily pop style. By contrast, Benjamin Biolay has stayed within the tradition of the scene's patriarch, Serge Gainsbourg -- although in doing so, he reveals his very own grandeur as songwriter and composer. Vincent Delerm re-emerges as laid-back and confident as ever with "Je Pense A Toi." Le Pop 5 also features the world premiere of "La Plage," an atmospheric duet by Bastien Lallemant and Holden singer Armelle Pioline, in the best tradition of Nick Cave's murder ballads. Other artists include Coeur de Pirate, Arizona Marianne Dissard and Naim Amors.
