Album Review

Evoking images of sensitive '70s MOR, the pensive male singer/songwriter came into vogue as the millennium turned. Teitur (full name Teitur Lassen) came to prominence on the heels of this movement. Though he is often compared to John Mayer, Poetry & Aeroplanes is more otherworldly than most Mayer fare, possibly as a result of Teitur's cosmopolitan background (he left the Faroe Islands as a teenager and proceeded to spend little time on any one continent). Dramatic orchestrations fill out most of the material, leaving the few ballads that are relegated to guitar-and-vocals simplicity sounding like Dave Matthews without the hippie inclinations. ~ Brian O'Neill, Rovi

Simply Excellent

By far one of the best albums recently released! Teitur's songwriting, guitar playing and singing skills are second to none! I saw him live in San Francisco and he was amazing! I would pay any amount of money to see him again. If you like a great singing voice and excellent guitar playing you'll love Teitur!

Where did this guy come from?

John Mayer was right -- you get about 6 seconds into the first track before you realize that this is something special. It's totally raw and sincere, and yet still completely smooth. And you could spend hours lost in those lyrics, man! It's like Sting meets Mayer meets Pat McGee. It's as perfect for a road trip as it is for those nights where you lay awake watching the ceiling stare back at you. And for 7.99? This is a no brainer.


This album is pure greatness. I bought this album last year after hearing one song, "i was just thinking". I didnt need any more evidence that the purchace would be worth it. This is great relaxing folk music. Listen to "poetry and aeroplanes" and "dreaming on two hour drives" on his other cd. And buy it.
