Oh, give me Simon and Garfunkel. Give me two geeky guitarists with at least one of them wearing glasses. Give me that hint of "we're not from England, but we sing in English because it's a bigger market". Give me Norway's answer to all things acoustic and lyrical and I'll be happy all evening, letting their gentle melodies drift through my psyche like wind through a wind chime. This album will not date. Its 12 tracks are essential listening for all those who like their music in unadulterated acoustic freeform. It's beautiful, magical and healing.
