Stina has unquestionably released her best album since "And she closed her eyes". The subtle shadings of strings and voices are back, along with her exquisite vocals and the most unexpected diversions and tangents from the main theme of her songs. The album is of course lyrically dark right from the opening line, and constantly contrasts sensual extremes, the most obvious being the cold that permeates most of her lyrics on the album, against the warmth and hope that the world just might be saved. Additionally, it is great to see that Stina produced this gem herself. I hope that there is more to come.

Stina Nordenstam's commercial strategy won't win her many new fans : having given only a handfull of interviews over the years and never toured except one show 14 years ago in London , the Scandinavian singer - songwritter seems to be all about creating the art but not really giving that much energy to promote it out there . At least , a rather pretty site made it's appearance on the net recently . Still , this Kate Bush-like resclusiveness bounds harmonically with the fragile , mysterious nature of her music .Nordenstam made her first appearance in the music scene in 1992 with the jazzy , eerie Memories Of A Colour , then shortly after that she released And She Closed Her Eyes , a track of which ( the tender " Little Star " ) was included in the Romeo & Juliet soundtrack , introducing the artist to a wider audience . Three , significally more downbeat and melancholic albums followed .

For her latest offering , the first to be released in the states since 1994 , Nordenstam once more combines serenity with darkness . There are two important qualities of hers that set her apart from most of the other "sad" girls in the music business today : first of all , it's her distinctive voice , a toxic purr of some sort which sounds so at home with the vulnerable ( " So This Is Goodbye ? " ) and hypnotic ( " So Lee " ) texture of her compositions . Then the lyrics are simply excellent ,witty and specific , as it often happens with scandinavian artists who despite singing in their second language , they dress their melodies with amazing words .

Format: Audio CD
Sweden has apparently provided its own answer to Hope Sandoval or Beth Gibbons: Stina Nordenstam. Her breathy voice and airy downtempo music initially sound a bit like those artists, but the spacey edges of her album makes it sound a lot more distant.

It opens with a piano being played in a quick, slightly ominous manner, and quickly gets joined by some jazzy percussion and subtle synth. Nordenstam wastes no time in singing deadpan: "And I tried to get up and I tried to move it/this thing won't let me/it's heavy as a man's body..."

A twangier note enters with "Winter Killing," but the album quickly dips back into sultry downtempo. Nordenstam quietly veers from ghostly jazz to airy classical pop to dark trip-hop, never staying too long on one particular kind of music. Listening to these songs is a bit like listening to a multitalented ghost in an abandoned cabaret.

With her sweet high voice and hard-to-classify pop, Stina Nordenstam actually resembles Icelandic singer Emiliana Torrini. But where Torrini is warm and more organic, Nordenstam sounds a lot chillier and more ethereal. Her delicate pop is exquisitely pretty, but it takes a little while to fully get into.

Nordenstam is known for her pretty voice. It's sweet, high and sort of childish. She also sounds, in this particular recording, distant and a little mechanical, which adds to the chilly, ethereal edge. The only problem is "125," where Nordenstam's pretty voice sounds, uh, nasal. At the beginning, anyway -- by the time the keyboard kicks in, she has it under control.

The music is as unusual and eerie as her voice: We've got disjointed guitar rhythms, buttery keyboard melodies and jazzy percussion, much like other trip-hop artists.

Is this the Stina album you've been waiting for?
"And She Closed Her Eyes" is always going to be the reference point ; pigeon hole it if you can . So what's going to make you pick this up , several releases later? "The World is Saved" makes sense of what came in between . It's not revision , it is renaissance and as such is very likely to charm anyone who has ever been beguiled by Nordenstam's twilight aura .
As private as a varnished cloud ,this is the Stina album I have been waiting for .

Don't listen to the lukewarm reviewers. I love this album and it is probably my favourite Stina effort, And She Closed Her Eyes included.
This may certainly not be as "cutting edge" a work as some of her stuff (and I'm surprised at some of the praise I've read for "This is", which, sadly, I thought was pretty rubbish) but for me it was indeed a "summit" - on Saved she synthesises the very best of her experimentations with sound and arrangement with brilliant tunes and some of her best lyrics.
I'm no Stina anorak but I know what I like, and this is it.
