Liv Kristine, relanserer sin religion

I forbindelse med fjorårets EP-slipp, intervjuet jeg Liv Kristine, les det HER .

Det er første gang skiva kommer på lp, der foreligger det en ekstra singel som bonus. Kjøper du kassett vanker det to ekstra låter, og på cd-en ligger det uutgitte låter og demoversjoner. Du kan forhåndsbestille alt HER .


"Not only the sound has been refined; also the cover and the photos, which were taken during a special photo session in the studio of Kai R. Joachim from that time. The photo material shows a special depth and authenticity of the experienced artist, moreover, she hows herself in a very personal light - sometimes delicate and up close, or completely different - as a woman - absolutely self-confident in the whole large cosmos.

The songs were also adorned with universal influences. Sitar sounds introduce the title track, which comfortably gets under your skin with its insinuating melody arcs and Liv Kristine's delicate voice. The opener Over the Moon (Peter Tägtgren) hints at powerful metal, but then develops into a driving pop song. Fake a Smile is an airy ballad, with Liv's voice charmingly taking center stage and setting the tone for most of the songs on the album. The title track Enter my Religion is a mid-tempo anthem with a wise appeal to your inner self, your self-esteem, happiness and creativity. The pace continues with All the Time in the World. Straighter and more guitar-driven is My Revelation. Pleasing harmonies are in the foreground in the warm and soothing composition Coming Home.

Streets of Philadelphia - Bruce Springsteen's theme song to the Oscar-winning movie was interpreted as a tribute. The arrangements being technically based on the original, Liv adds new and softer accents to the track. You Take Me Higher is extraordinarily different and more dance-oriented, with a subtle drum'n'bass overlay.

With Trapped in Your Labyrinth and Fake a Smile she spoils her listeners with profoundly sensual ballads and rock songs. The fairy-like singing, accentuated by piano sounds, envelops music lovers in a web of security, melancholy and longing."
