AllMusic Review by

Notable journeyman Bernard Lavilliers uses his well-traveled background for musical inspiration yet again on his 19th studio album, Causes Perdues et Musiques Tropicales, which features collaborations with musicians from around the globe, including Angolan folksinger Bonga Kwenda ("Angola"), Cape Verdean guitarist Teofilo Chantre ("La Nuit Nous Appartient"), and French percussionist Mino Cinelu ("Coupeurs de Cannes") on a bossa nova-tinged effort that also includes a song written by the "Latin Bruce Springsteen," Rubén Blades ("Cafard").
