8/10 Jack Customer review, 26th September 2015
Tribute albums are so often a bummer, but this one really works. Serge Gainsbourg just seems to be a great artist to interpret for English-speaking bands/performers. The best track is Kid Loco and Jarvis Cocker's take on "I Have Come to Tell You That I'm Going," which has a late-night, downtempo feel. Although not far behind is Marianne Faithful's rendition of the bawdy, hilarious "Lola Rasta" song. Mick Harvey's two albums of Serge covers with English lyrics are absolute gems and this collection is almost as enjoyable as those. If you love Serge you will love this compilation.
