Alexander Rybak’s new album
On Friday Alexander Rybak’s new album will be released and it is already receiving both negative and positive remarks. Newspapers give it 4, 6 and 1. The 1 is from Sweden but I guess they’re just jealous – they didn’t do well in this years Eurovision Song Contest.
You can check out his new album here : Alexander on Myspace. I’m very excited to hear what Ken thinks of this, could you check it out Ken A? 🙂 Especially Roll With The Wind.
Do you like his music?
Newspapers are giving him rolls like 1, 4, 5 and 6! 6 is a bit much but 1? I hate it when “music experts” lash out like Markus Larsson calling Alexander a violinhobbit, Isn’t that a bit off? It reminds me of Idol when our Norwegian Kurt was called a hobbit by Simon Cowell :
Larsson says something like
Sounds like “smurf Hits”
The example that is captivated by Rybaks Irish folk song “Roll with the wind” has probably never listened to The Water Boys album “Fisherman’s Blues”. And anyone who can swallow the sentimental musical and brave old Tin Pan Alley codes – with texts in which magical dolphins and thirteen pieces horses swim around – do not require much of its pop.
