Genre Humain ‎(CD, Album, Promo). Furthermore, Brigitte Fontaine has no wimpy voice but a voice of gunpowder. Unfortunately there are tracks less attractive. Sometimes it becomes far too monotonous to me. I would like to question whether this music really is avant-garde. Alright, there are some mixes going on, between different genres. But, to me, avant-garde requires experiments on a higher level. Honestly, the major part of this album is modern dance music or modernized chansons with a touch of world music adapted for electronica and dub. In the long run I will remember her voice and the essence of French chansons

Brigitte Fontaine created some of the most inspired avant-garde pop music to come out of France during the '70s that straddled the divide between song, theater, and performance art. During the early part of the decade, she recorded with Jacques Higelin and her partner Areski Belkacem, a brilliant Algerian composer and percussionist. The avant-garde jazz legends Art Ensemble of Chicago were based in Paris and befriended the quirky trio, subsequently playing on Fontaine's second album, the magnificent Comme à la Radio, which remains her landmark album.

Brigitte Fontaine became a major figure in the French underground. In a half-dozen albums, the majority of which were released through the independent label Saravah, Fontaine explored different poetic worlds. She renounced the use of rhyme, and using talk-over sometimes, she recorded, with very little means and often on two tracks, songs which addressed topics with humour or gravity, according to the mood, as various as death ("Dommage que tu sois mort"), life ("L’été, l’été"), alienation ("Comme à la radio. Her lyrics mark a return to a more classical, versified form. The release of her album Genre humain, in 1995, met with great success (more so on the part of the critics than the general public) with surprising titles like "Conne" (produced by Étienne Daho), lyric titles like "La Femme à barbe" (produced by Les Valentins), and poetic ones like "Il se mêle à tout ça" (produced by Yann Cortella.
