AllMusic Review by

Following his previous star-studded Adieu Tristesse, 2008 follow-up L'Homme du Monde is a much more personal effort from Parisian singer/pianist Arthur H. Featuring 13 self-penned tracks sung in both English and French, the Jean Massicotte-produced album eschews H's usual piano-led ambient jazz for a more energetic, guitar-based sound. With lyrics inspired by the birth of his son a year previouslyn and his relationship with his own father, Jacques Higelin, it also includes the single "Dancing with Madonna."
