iTunes Review

Prepare to be left breathless. On her third album, Danish singer/songwriter Agnes Obel uses a delicate balance of mood and orchestration to explore issues of personal space and privacy in our social media-obsessed world. A suite of piano, strings and percussion provides a stunning framework for Obel’s imagination to build upon. Her crystalline falsetto is fragile yet never bows. On songs like “Mary” and “It’s Happening Again”, she manages tension with cinematic grace. Citizen of Glass is a deeply layered LP that inspires appreciative sighs on many levels—lyrical, musical and beyond.

The textures and soundscape qualities of Citizen of Glass combined with beautiful, rich but delicate voice of Agnes make for a simply sublime album, briming with pure quality. My forthcoming Winter has just has just become one whole lot more enjoyable.
