5.0 out of 5 stars Morten's Marvellous Musical Masterpiece!! 8 Dec 2010
By L. Tait
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I recently purchased this album for about a tenner, and it's proved to be the best ten pounds I've ever spent! Don't be put off by the fact that the album is in Norwegian, because the songs are still catchy! I especially liked ' Jeg er fremmed her ' (I am a stranger here)and 'Taksameteret gar' ( The Taxi meter is running). Knowing a bit of Norwegian, I translated the song titles! ' Herre I drommen'(here in the dream),'Vuggevise'(lullaby),'Jeg kjenner ingen fremtid'(I know nothing of the future),'Gammal og vis' (older and wiser)'Tilbake til livet'(returning to life)'Himmelske danser'(the heavens dance), 'Sondag Morgen', (Sunday morning) and 'Lyser nar du drar'(Lighting your way when you travel or guiding light). Morten's vocals are as fantastic as ever,and if you enjoy this album as much as I have, and intend to for many years to come,check out his other solo works to date, Poetenes Evangelium,also in Norwegian, but quite religious in theme,Letter from Egypt, which is in English and very good,and Wild Seed, which is also religious in content but great nonetheless.Strictly for Morten Harket fans, selvfolgelig! (of course!)And I bet you anything that 'Taksameteret gar' will stick in your head for days after you've first heard it!Well worth a listen, or two, or three,or four.......

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album! 12 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I became a Morten Harket fan because I used to listen to A-ha, then I found out about Moten's projects and I discovered how wonderful his music is. This album has nothing to do with A-ha, but it's a great album. The music is so impressive, and even though I didn't understand a word at first, I totally loved it. Later, I started using a dictionary to find out what I was singing about, I wasn't able to understand everything, however I realised the lyrics reflect Morten's way of writing songs. The best songs are "Fremmed Her", "Himmelske Danser" and "Jeg Kjenner Ingen Fremtid". He's so creative and talented that I absolutely recommend this album, just as the other ones!

5.0 out of 5 stars Who is Morten Harket? 22 Jun 2007
By Neptune - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album has some bluesy, American-tumbleweed pathos at some of its best. I felt like I was listening to a Chris Isaak album in Norwegian!
It's almost as if this guy went on an extended tour of the U.S., along Route 66, and like...got it! But did he sell it to the experts on "Bluesy, American-tumbleweed pathos?" Nope! He exported it to his native people who probably loved it!

The hardest thing to get your mind around with this album is that this is the same high-pompadour, ultra-belting, syth-pop vocal god from the '80's who cranked out "Take on me" along with many others, because it is sooo not that! It sounds more like the latest primordial release from Nickel Creek or something.

This album has lots of jumbo folk guitars, mandolin (Morty's even seen twiddling one in the insert), harmonica, twangy-sounding Fenders and Gibsons,...the list goes on. Sure, it sounds like he's singing backwards English, but forget that, this dude has got the blues...not "The Blue Sky."

Trippy!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent recording by a true vocal talent 11 Jun 2007
By S. Normandeau - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've been trying to track this CD down for some time, as I'm a huge Morten Harket fan from way back. I've followed his career, and that of his a-ha bandmates, since the Eighties, and I've always been extremely fond of Harket's voice. "Vogts Villa" is a departure from Harket's English-language recordings, and that may deter some listeners, but don't let it. It doesn't matter if you cannot understand the lyrics - this album is such an artful blend of (mostly acoustic) instruments and Harket's extraordinary vocal talent that you forget you can't speak Norwegian as you catch yourself humming along. Each song is very beautiful, and I suspect, slightly biographical and introspective. A very satisfying listen, worthwhile even if you're unfamiliar with (or not a huge fan) of Harket's other work!

4.0 out of 5 stars Morten rules 27 Feb 2007
By Francisco Javier Martinez Ruiz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you are expecting something like take on me, you are in the wrong direction. This is a solo project from a-ha's vocalist in its original language (This guys are from Normay). I don't understand not even a single word, but the music sounds very mature, so the voice of Harket. It's delightful to the ear. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional singer and excellent album! 11 Sep 2007
By Guy Levi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is even better than Morten's 'Wild Seed' album! It is in Norwegian, so I do not understand the words ( can anyone translate?) but it is very enjoyable to listen to and interesting to hear Morten sing in his native language. He co-wrote all ten songs and the music is beautiful and very melodic. Of course the best thing is Morten's voice- his singing is the reason I bought the album. Morten is an exceptional singer- I will get his future albums whether they are in English or Norwegian! I highly recommend this album to all a-ha fans! Get this album! You'll be glad you did!

5.0 out of 5 stars For the Morten fan, this one is the best 6 Oct 2008
By Storylover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you are reading this page, you probably already know that Morten Harket is possessed of one of the finest voices in pop music. I avoided this disk for a while because of the language barrier, but I needn't have been concerned--his voice is so fantastic that the man could sing anything and it would be worth my time. The fact that the music is also quite good makes this even more of a find. Where Wild Seed was straightforward pop, Vogts Villa has more of an Americana feel to some of the songs, and an almost 60's vibe to some of the guitar. Morten's voice is, of course, wondrous. He uses all 5 octaves of it to good effect. If you like to hear this man sing, then don't worry that you can't speak the language. Buy this disk, you'll find yourself singing along even though you don't know what you are saying. Beautiful music, beautiful voice, wonderful songs.
