Anna Ternheim's debut album met with suprising success amongst the Swedish public when it was released in 2004 as well as laudatory reviews in mainland Europe in 2006. That it was recorded in a converted sawmill on Gotland island (with neither a label nor a record deal) is captured in its intimate atmosphere and spartan acoustics. The cover sets the tone and scene: Anna stands with bowed head, her face blotted out by the darkness, before a lake circled by trees, the skies behind her revealing the last rays of a setting sun. Her music betrays the same mixture of melancholy interlaced with fine rays of hope: whilst tracks such as "Bring down like I" and I'll follow you tonight" mourn the transitory nature of relationships ("foreover lasted 90 days", she sings), and worry about feeling shallow or bored when sleeping with someone, other tracks like "My secret" counter this by celebrating following your instincts and finding love ("you just happen to be where everything feels fine"), or "I say no" and the title track, which embrace distancing yourself from false friends and becoming more autonomous. The end-note does plummet into sadness, however, with a piano-based cover version of Broder Daniel's "Shoreline".

In its sense of genuine emotional vulnerability, "Somebody Outside" is an intense counter to the soporific weltschmerz of more commercial artists like Damien Rice or Norah Jones. Ternheim has an unshowy voice, singing warmly with an attractive Swedish accent; her guitar-playing is uncomplicated and unpretentious. She is flanked by a band of musicians who never rock out into the overelaborate: even on the more poppy tracks ("Better be", "To be gone"), there is a sense of controlled simplicity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grows on you 28 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this after watching Wallander and becoming hooked on the ethereal quality of this artists work. After reading other peoples reviews that this was one of her best collections I bought 'Somebody Outside'. It has become one of my favourite CD's, it definitely grows on you the more you listen to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 18 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album. Anna Ternheim is really well-known in Sweden but has never made the impact she deserves in the UK. The single 'To Be Gone' is one of the best tracks, and there's some fascinating instrumentation on the album. Perhaps the best feature is the fact that several of the tracks from the first half of the album have acoustic/unplugged versions later on. There are a couple of songs when her voice is a little on the whiney side, but don't be put off!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great album but not her best 16 Mar 2012
By Jarvizz
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album. Anna's Swedish accent was still very strong during the recording of these songs - which is quite charming. The lyrics are beautiful and the melodies really sweet. Though I prefer her album Leaving on a Mayday, this one is a must-have for her fans!
