    In MISS METEORES, Olivia Ruiz's third album, the young French songwriter seems more in control than ever of her artistic persona, and clearly cherishing every bit of her liberation from the shadow of her STAR ACADEMY fame. For starters, she wrote all the lyrics for her new album, as well as co-writing most of the music with longtime partner Mathias Malzieu. Ruiz enthusiastically tries her hand at everything in MISS METEORES, verging from French chanson to hard rock, or from blues to calypso and folk, as well as singing in three languages and featuring several guests from all across the board: Austrian folk outfit Lonely Drifter Karen, rapper Toan, French rock group Coming Soon, Christian Olivier from Ttes Raides, the Noisettes, and even members of her own family.
    For all of this diversity, the songs share a certain similarity--they are all around three minutes long, and most boast a fairly traditional structure of verse/chorus. A very keen interest in sonic texture is what separates this material from similar pop endeavors (including previous Ruiz albums), one that seems to take most of its cues from the musical universe of Tom Waits or Vinicio Capossela. Indeed, regardless of musical genre, the instrumentation remains similar with a penchant for a drunken carnival feel, full of twinkling pianos, staccato patterns, horns, and all sorts of oscillating percussion and other noises, such as the screeching door sounds in the Tim Burton-esque lullaby "Peur du Noir." It may not succeed at every turn, but MISS METEORES certainly witnesses Ruiz growing by leaps and bounds, aided by first-rate production and arrangements.
