First and foremost it is the album that gave us the notorious, now infamous, single "Lemon Incest," with its The Rolling Stones - Bridges To Poland (DVD) scandalous video featuring Gainsbourg on a bed with his scantily clad year-old daughter Charlotte performing the song.
It is also the only American recording made by Gainsbourgrecorded in New Jersey with Billy Rush and Joanna - Serge Gainsbourg - Love And The Beat king Larry Fast providing most of the synth programming. Finally, it is notorious for its feminine screaming on the title track, adding a double entendre to the word Joanna - Serge Gainsbourg - Love And The Beat in the title.
Yes, she's screaming as if she's being beaten within an inch of her life and loving it. Such is Gainsbourg. Musically, the aforementioned tunes -- the first of which is set to Chopin's Etude No. This is New York slick new wave production with Gainsbourg doing his best to be lecherous. Phase shifters and sustain boxes, tightly compressed sound and Gainsbourg 's lewd poetry intoned over the artificially beat heavy mix.
But this doesn't make it a bad record; just not one of Gainsbourg 's better ones. If the production would have been toned down a notch, and the canned funk scaled back a bit, this album might have been a remarkable one. It feels as if Billy Rush and Larry Fast created this sound world for Gainsbourg based on what they though he should sound like if he were recording in America in the mid-'80s, not what he did sound like as himself.
