5.0 out of 5 stars A Warm Rosy Glow, 18 Oct. 2011
This review is from: An Argument With Myself (Audio CD)
Jens Lekman is a singer/songwriter from Sweden and this little gem of a release
has made me want to hear more of him but let's try and make do with this for now.

There are only five songs in the set but each one of them is a beautifully
crafted composition. Lyrically erudite; charmingly melodic; perfectly-formed.
Mr Lekman has a voice which is very easy to listen to; a light tenor possessed
of the kind of diction rarely heard within the boundaries of our own shores.
You could take him home to meet your mum and she would doubtless love him!

Some might find him a bit of a lightweight but I challenge you not to be
pleasantly carried away by the delightful trumpet and sax interventions which
punctuate Mr Lekman's cheery staccato vocals on the bright and breezy number
'New Directions'. The jolly rhythms and crisp guitar playing on opening track
'An Argument With Myself' (crikey he don't 'arf pack the words in tight!) bursts
into the air like a golden ray of sunshine and the more gentle and reflective
'Waiting For Kirsten' will give you a nice warm feeling deep down in your tummy.

OK I'll admit it's not exactly rocket-science but it made me smile!

Highly Recommended.

Thanks for your review, just listening to his EP on Spotify, it's great fun and his voice is lovely. The last track 'So This Guy at My Office' has a reggae beat to it! So does the first track.........He is Swedish............

Great fun and will encourage me to listen to his album, Night Falls Over Kortedala, and he has a new album out, I know What Love Isn't.
