Camille: Le Fil (Bout du Fil)

Charlie Gillett, Observer Music Monthly, April 2005

AT THE TIME of receiving this record, I had never heard of Camille before, and knew only that she is French. The photo on the cover makes me want to know more. A lone strand of twisted hair is strung across her face, just below the eyes, as she returns the camera's gaze with a look that stops just short of insolence, surrendering nothing, ready for absolutely anything.
