EDITORS’ NOTES

On his third album, Hélène, balladeer Roch Voisine strikes a delicate balance. The heartfelt title track finds him singing in disarmingly down-to-earth fashion, in French and English, over electric and acoustic guitar. That striking combination of versatility and emotional honesty takes a dark turn on the brooding, soul-searching "Pourtant." He pleads to a leaving lover on "Avant De Partir," never over-singing as he lays it all on the line against a gently bopping backdrop. Even the acoustic rocker "Fille De Pluie" isn't enough to shake him from his path of self-revelation.
