Product Description

Product Description

Teitur - 'All My Mistakes' follows hot on the heels of Teiturs UK debut 'The Singer'. Having been desribed by The Fly as "Utterly Inspiring and "Never less than extraordinary" by The Guardian, 'All My Mistakes' is the album which will connect the dots to his history but also establish Teitur to the mainstream as a song writer par excellence!

BBC Review

As an artist with a fair-sized, if not substantial, back catalogue behind him already, Faroese singer-songwriter Teitur Lassen remains somewhat of an enigma to listeners on these shores, despite 2009 seeing the worldwide release of the lingering, dark masterpiece that is The Singer, his fourth album. The purpose of All My Mistakes – a patchwork of emotional digressions from various points in his career – is to serve as an introduction to the man’s languid and mystical Nordic charm.

Such is the nature of any single-artist compilation, fluency is an eternal obstacle and it’s a tough leap here.  A jump is exactly what we have, though, once the disappointingly dull opening quartet is left behind. It’s almost like a layer of fatty skin – embodied in the MOR-bordering Don’t Want You To Wake Up and You’re The Ocean – to be sliced off, revealing the juicy flesh located underneath. Do exactly this and early patience is rewarded with a significant rise in quality and impact.

It is not until the minor key, lovelorn tale of I Run the Carousel that you begin to fully comprehend Teitur’s talent and truly get to hear what he’s about. It sees discordant strikes of the piano in a contrasting chorus after a verse of melodious lyricism and carefree chords. Elsewhere, the bare-bones minimalism approach works as well as the grand orchestrations, the acoustic strum-fest of I Was Just Thinking comprising the former, and the enduring crescendo helping You Get Me to morph into the latter. Yet the problem with this record’s composition is that, inexplicably, it almost betrays the brilliance found in his more sombre and searching moments; those very moments which were so brilliantly demonstrated on The Singer, which arguably make up career highs.

All My Mistakes does its job as an introduction to the Faroe Islands’ finest musical export. Yet the primary issue is that the surface is only scratched and – knowing that the man has released work with more depth, delicacy and, arguably, quality – this is at times a frustrating listen for already established fans of Lassen. Newcomers, however, would be rightfully encouraged to pick it up and indulge in Teitur’s tranquil tones and both cheerful and sullen tunes. --Luke Slater

Format: Audio CD
This is a compilation of songs from Teitur's previous three English language CDs. I love his sweet melancholy introspective songs and voice and his novel take on relationships and places. It was an egregious act of modesty and self-deprecation - perhaps typical of the Faroe Islands where he grew up - to title his compilation "All My Mistakes". Actually, as a line in the title song notes, "all my mistakes have become masterpieces". It could have been called "All My Successes", even though a few of my favorite tracks were left off. My only complaint is that, as an enthusiastic fan, I was hoping for new material. For any listener unfamiliar with Teitur's music, this CD is a great introduction.
