AllMusic Review by

The multi-platinum success of La Oreja de Van Gogh's third album, Lo Que Te Conté Mientras Te Hacías la Dormida (2003), was so tremendous, it was eventually repackaged for release in neighboring France under the title Paris. This French edition includes seven of the highlights from Lo Que Te Conté Mientras Te Hacías la Dormida ("Puedes Contar Conmigo," "Deseos de Cosas Imposibles," "Geografía," "Rosas," "Vestido Azul," "Un Mundo Mejor," "Nadie Como Tú") alongside five of the highlights from El Viaje de Copperpot (2000), La Oreja de Van Gogh's second album ("Paris," "Cuídate," "La Playa," "Desde el Puerto," "La Chica del Gorro Azul"). In addition, the version of "Paris" featured here is a newly recorded French adaption featuring a duet between lead vocalist Amaia Montero and Belgian singer Pablo Villafranca. So while Paris features the same cover art as Lo Que Te Conté Mientras Te Hacías la Dormida, it's in fact a mix of highlights from La Oreja de Van Gogh's second and third albums, plus the French-language version of the title track.
