The haunting pop of French singer Alain Barriere is featured on Master Serie, one of the many albums with that title to celebrate European musicians. The intimate and delicate arrangements perfectly fit Barriere's voice, which lies somewhere between the dramatic croon of Marty Robbins and the delicate wail of Demis Roussos. Although this sort of theatrical pop is not for everyone, fans of the European pop scene may want to give this a listen -- there is some engaging music to be found here.
