AllMusic Review by

This massive five-disc offering looks at Renaud's music in a rather odd manner in that it only goes back to 1985 and not 1976, when his recording career actually began. The early years were in a decidedly more informal and rawer style to be sure, but that's not necessarily an excuse to leave them out. What is here offers the beginnings of his return to more formal French chanson styles as well as his slicker, more pop/rock-oriented productions, with a wealth of album tracks, singles, and live cuts, and a couple of rarities.
