After a 2006 album created in collaboration with Air and Jarvis Cocker, Charlotte Gainsbourg returns with a surprisingly great LP written and produced by Beck. The nods to psych rock, junkyard blues, half-rap cadences, and ghostly ballads won’t shock anyone generally familiar with Beck’s oeuvre, but Gainsbourg’s versatile and vulnerable vocals add a depth missing from many of her songwriter’s post-Sea Change work. Throughout, she makes the most of her limited vocal abilities by switching deliveries to match her surroundings. IRM marks Gainsbourg’s transition from pop scion to pop artiste.
