La Dame Qui Piquait Les Cœurs – Livre 1 – Les Caprices du Cupidon

“[The music] is fairly epic in sound and songwriting, to an extent that it almost beggars belief that all this was written, played, sung, produced and programmed by Nehl Aëlin herself with only the help of four musicians and not a whole symphony orchestra.[…]Do yourself a favor and treat yourself with the wonderful and beguiling music of the Lady who picks the hearts (La Dame qui Piquait les Cœurs) if you like movie soundtracks, classical music and french chansons. You won’t regret it.” 4,5/5★
