    I grew up in Montreal, Quebec, Canada which is a French province. Likely the most populated French place outside of France. There have been many amazing French groups from Quebec. But perhaps that is another topic entirely. I will name a few great Quebec groups: Harmonium, Dionysus, Ville Emard Blues Band, L’infonie, Les Seguins, Fiori-Seguin, Michel Pagliaro, Plume, Cano, Renee Claude, Louise Forestier, Robert Charlebois, Michel Madore, Corcoran/Gosselin, Pierre Nadeau, Claude Dubois, and many more. Okay time to start another topic thread. You guys stick to France. I’ll be over there ——
     
  4. There is positively no question that this album is a masterpiece and among the highest ranks of great French albums.

    I've only recently become a convert to the music of Harmonium. Will be speaking to Serge for my podcast later this year and am immensely looking forward to it.

    M83 ‎Saturdays=Youth 2008

    This album is simply beautiful, filled with melancholy and emotion..
    Saturdays=Youth lives up to its evocative title, but the youth it captures is filtered through nostalgia for the unrepentantly fake sounds of the '80s, transforming them into delicate fantasy pop.

    Assuming that Francophone Belgians count, La valse à mille temps, Marieke or Les Marquises by Jacques Brel.

    Melody Nelson might be a legit answer but i'd rather go with Fantaisie Militaire

    St Germain ‎– Tourist 2000

    The opener "Rose Rouge" is an immediate highlight , the tunes are bluesy, modal, funky, and mostly danceable..
    Tourist achieved the number one position on Billboard's Contemporary Jazz Albums chart, and the album and its creator won France's most prestigious music award, the Victoires de la Musique, in jazz, live performance, and electronic categories (Jazz Discovery of the Year, Live Discovery, and Best Electronic Album).

    The Christine and the Queens debut album is brilliant pop--very stripped-down and cool. Really all of the Christine and the Queens records are good--the artist, whose name is Heloise Letissier, seems to be in a place where she just doesn't make inferior material.

    Christine and the Queens, "It"

    Exile Frenchman Louis Philippe has released a lot of great albums in his career but this beautifully orchestrated album might be his best
