AllMusic Review by

Best-known for his roles as L'Aubergiste and the Clown Demoniaque in Mozart L'Opera Rock and Francois, Duke of Beaufort in Le Roi Soleil, French actor Merwan Rim makes the transition from the stage to the pop charts with his debut album Echappee. Its 13 romantic, Gallic pop tracks include the singles "Vous" and "Mens-Moi," the English-sung "This Is Not Happiness," and a collaboration with Ben's Brother frontman Jamie Hartman on a French-language reworking of his solo hit, "Happy New Year" ("Un Nouveau Jour").
