8/10 Phil Staff review, 26 September 2013

I’ve never heard Agnes Obel before. She’s one of those many artists that come in that we just never get chance to hear, there’s too many records and not enough time! Well here I am shocked to find out she’s sold almost half a million copies of her debut across the world! I figure it’s time to listen to what the fuss is all about!

It would appear Agnes is a lady with a piano as the album opens with a delicate heartstring tuggy piano number which wouldn’t feel out of place on a Nils Frahm album (coincidentally the album features Anne Müller who has played with Nils). It’s a delightful intro readying you for the album and indeed the next track ‘Fuel To Fire’ where Agnes sings to her piano. It’s a gorgeous rolling piano rhythm and boy does she have a beautiful voice! It’s not all piano and vocals though as there’s violin, viola, cello and other instruments that sound lovely.

I can totally see how that many people would buy this. It’s emotive music that’s been beautifully crafted and arranged. The neoclassical crowd will love its playful Frahm-esque touches and her voice is a huge selling point as it’s a delight on the ear. I think I’m gonna have to check out 'Philharmonics' and see if that’s as good as this one!
