    "DALS hype" had never anything to do with this album, imo. . . . ever! No matter the months. Just because some other performer might win, it would not equate to more followers later. . . . unless it were someone totally new and got sound, valid exposure. That was not the case here. I understand that DALS might've given her a boost in the consciousness of the people of France, but they did not need to see Lili win DALS to buy her albums. That's how it is when you pump out albums like a Pez dispenser!

    She certainly has the down to earth quality that is missing from current performers out there, but there are simply so many things at play here that even had there been a boost in sales due to DALS exposure, it would've been simply a blip on the radar, and nothing that could bring back 2003-04, for example, or suddenly make this album way more popular than her previous, on account of it.

    There was nothing to think about! There were only questions to ponder like: is the album good enough!? People that viewed DALS and cheered for Lili, mostly did not care about any future albums she would release . . about as much as the regular consumer, anyway. Fans cheered and voted for thier own, and others remained unbiased in their voting and cheering. . . . that's DALS. That she got exposure over a fairly wide viewing audience in France, could not help her music career, in terms of album sales.
    This talk about the album release being 7 or so months too late . . that the new season of DALS is here now, is pure horse shit, WADR! Certainly the DALS tour would keep the torch alive or feed the enthusiasm, right!? Wrong . . because it is all meaningless to what you guys seem to have been expecting from an earlier release of the album.

    The hype was good for her . . the exposure in that arena . . . but the album is on another playing field, where a popular album would have boosted her DALS participation/ratings, but not the other way around, sorry to say.

    . . . . the songs on the album will determine everything. It's great to hear Alcaline!! It's the kind of song that you could rely on to help sell an album for her. People from DALS exposure to her would search for her album online, and hear this song and would either like it, or not. They wold decide to DL it or not, or to buy the album or not. . . just like the regular consumer.

    Mon Planeur!!!! come on people . . . don't need any DALS hype. The song remains the same!

    3300 copies... it's sad, but i'm full of hope, that Alizee still will be record (UEDS and 5, great CDs, but poor sales too) ! In my opinion Blonde is her worst (or second worst, just did't decide which is worse - Blonde or Psychedelice) album (but there are songs which i like of course)

    it's not France but she jumped from No. 72 to No. 19 in the Belgian (Wallonia) album charts... that's her highest ranking there since MCE..

    A year or so ago I said how she should hold a concert in Belgium . . . . at the triage lavoir de peronnes haha . . . oh well if only they were both ready at the same time. Imagine ACC (fits perfect with the building's past and present state) sung at the grand opening, along with her current single(s) to boot!

    mmmmmmmm if only! The songs dictate evreything. . . it is what will sell this album! ANY sort of exposure from other events in the not-to-distant-past (ie.DALS) would only work if the songs on the album were good enough to merit attention that does not simply wither and dissipate afterwards. That is the whole point of everything folks! The music. . . it has been that way ever since ML. Hopefully it picks up the more her songs are heard even in snippets.

    Alizée Forever!

    Well it's hard for us at times but I'm sure we will hold on to the good times and never forget all the great moments she has given to us ( I still remember feeling so blessed to be living in the same era as our angel as I'm sure some still might do now ) throughout the years and coming into our lives. Well there's a big part of me that wants to see her perform again on stage in concert like she did back in the day even if I couldn't go in the future. Well times have changed for me and I have some too. I don't think I will even be here for her next cd if she decides to do one but hey it doesn't really matter to me anymore because there's a bigger part of me that always wanted her to be happy in her life and now I believe she is as is her daughter and that means much to me even though deep down I really wanted to be the one to make her happy.
