5.0 out of 5 stars Truly amazing....not what you'd expect 26 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard Lene Marlins "Sitting Down Here" I thought - not bad - upbeat lively Britney Spears type singer. When I saw the reviews on Amazon, I thought, Hmmm, maybe there's more to this singer than I first thought. So I bought the album and I was gobsmacked. She has got a incredible voice - amazing range and emotion. This is not a Britney Spears type pop album at all. My favourite track is "Maybe I'll Go" which shows the range in Lene's voice. I just love that song. The other true masterpiece is "A place nearby" which is the most touching song I have heard for a very very long time. It just brought me to tears and I say this having also bought Eminem's new album! "A place nearby" is about death and dying but it also inspire incredible hope and it is not a depressing song. Lene's lyrics show a incredible insight into life, love and everything else that makes us human. The lyrics are truly surprisingly for someone so young - she writes about subjects which other singers her age could only dream about. I can't wait for her next album because I've been truly converted. Amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only two differences 29 Aug 2001
Format:Audio CD
I brought this album from France while I was over there, just because i wanted the different covers, but after listening to it at home a few times, I've realized that there is a difference between the endings of Way we are. The European version finsishes the way the song starts, with the electric guitar playing the tune, whereas on the english verion, it goes to fade with Lene singing. I think if you're a Lene Marlin fan and you have money to waste, you should get it. It looks good with your other Lene Marlin cd's and puts the enthusiasm back into Playing my Game, while we wait for the next album...

5.0 out of 5 stars still love it... 10 April 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard "Unforgivable sinner" in january 99, I fell completely in love with it right away, and I waited eagerly for two long months before it started really getting airplay. Then, a few days before the release of her album in april I heard "Sitting Down Here" on the radio and I just knew right away that I HAD to have the album. Those three days felt like an eternity.... and I bought it the minute the record store opened that day. And when I came home to listen to it I was just stunned! I was very impressed with the ballads, since I had only heard two pop-songs of hers. My favourite part of the album is probably the end of "So I see", but the best song is "Playing my game" without a doubt, I hope it becomes a single. And when I heard the second verse of "A place nearby" I was absolutely breathless for the first time in my life I think. Add that to what a wonderful song "Maybe I'll Go" is to unwind to, there just no reason why you shouldn't buy this album. It's still the album I listen the most to, even if I've bought a lot more records since this past year. Can't wait for her next album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 7 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What surprised me most when I first heard that this album was being released in the UK was that the accompaning single was "sitting down here". This is totally uncharacteristic of the rest of the album, not so much in lyrical content but in actual music style. It's the only song that doesnt have believeable drums.
But believeable drums arent really what this album is about for me. The absolutely impeccable production mixed with the warmth and body of lene's voice make this one of the stand out albums in my collection. I'm captivated by songs like "playing my game" and "so i see" every time I listen to them. This album is a must have, but dont buy it if you're expecting all the songs to sound like "sitting down here" - they most certainly dont.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yay for lene Marlin 1 Sep 2002
Format:Audio CD
Well this album is amazing, there's no other way to describe it. It's cleverly written lyrically, the harmonies send chills down my spine and Lene has this wonderful sweet voice that lends itself only too well to her music.
Another thing i like about Lene is that she doesn't explain who or what any of her tracks are about, she just lets the listener work it out for themselves. I am almost moved to tears when i listen to "A Place Nearby" which is something that rarely happens to me. and she uses pause in "Flown Away" which is a nice little element of suprise in a very melancholie song. The best track for me though is "Unforgivable Sinner" it has a dark quality without being too dark but also a very catchy chorus that buzzes round your head for weeks. This is an album that you can play right through, as there is not a bad song on there.
A lot of tracks have this lullabilical quality about them and it's nice to have Lene Marlin sing you to sleep as you're drifting off into the land of nod, mean that in a good way though, cos it's far from boring stuff
I hope Lene brings out a new album soon cos if it's anything like as good as her debut... it'll rocket her to superstardom!
Lots of love, hugs & kisses!

5.0 out of 5 stars You have to buy this CD! 4 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Lene Marlin seems to be the flavour of the month at the moment; you can't turn the radio on without hearing the catchy 'Sitting Down Here' being played (in between Macy Gray's 'I Try', naturally). She also keeps cropping up on TV as well, with presenters congratulating her on being so talented and so young too (and from Norway - do I hear the words 'nil pointe'?).
Her debut album Playing My Game, certainly no Euro flop, is a mixture of songs that fall into the category of either catchy pop ('Sitting Down Here') or fey ballad ('Playing My Game', 'Flown Away') or a combination of the two ('Unforgivable Sinner'). Reminiscent of Lisa Loeb and with wisdom beyond her eighteen years, her songs of love, loss and alienation hold a universal appeal - indeed she's already garnered several awards for this album, including one from MTV.
Whether Lene has staying power beyond the appeal of her youthfulness still remains to be seen, but on the strength of this album I would say that she's certainly one to watch.
