Not necessarily averse to outside help, and having tested the collaboration waters with 2011's fantastic Safari Disco Club (on which the trio enlisted the help of German electronic wunderkind Siriusmo), Yelle were in a good position to accept help without compromising their sound. It was Dr. Luke who reached out to the trio, having heard their remix of Katy Perry's "Hot n' Cold" and having seen them perform in L.A., offering his help in any way he could; and if that means a bigger profile stateside, then all the better. Complètement Fou retains pretty much everything you've come to love in their two previous offerings and rarely falters: only a few missteps linger, notably the sugary and borderline twee "Florence En Italie" and the ill-advised two-parter "Nuit De Baise I" and "Nuit De Baise II." Otherwise, Complètement Fou is filled to the brim with catchy electro-pop tracks about shaking your hips, going crazy and road trips, culminating with first single and appropriately titled "Bouquet Final."
So while the prospect of an Americanized version of the French trio was enough to make any fan nervous, you need only look at the album cover, with Budet's face peering out of a sea of blue popcorn, to realize that all is well in the world of Yelle. (Kemosabe)
