'Aventine' offers eleven numbers. Agnes Obel has an inimitably haunting voice that is dreamlike and almost pixieish but beautiful. One can't help compare her to Enya, although Agnes has moved this style to the next level. Here we have piano-led compositions, embellished with wise restraint and sparingly used instrumentation, soft percussion and strings that create a soundscape to compliment her vocal performances. The album offers beautifully tempered vocal harmonies that creates a magical experience. It's like listening to music in a woodland setting by moonlight.

Stunningly beautiful from start to finish, a refreshing smorgasbord of Scandinavian musical landscapes. This album is pure joy and class

Quality of vinyl edition is simply abysmal. I have a high-end setup and 90% of my collection (some LPs dating from '50s) sounds perfectly. This one however cracks and pops to limit of actually believing it. Definition and dynamics are among the poorest I have encountered so far, comparable to a quite worn out record - I have few of such...
This is such a disastrous pressing and it really is dissapointing. At the same time I bought newly pressed LP "In the Court of the Crimson King" and that one is so superb...

I must admit to never having heard of Agnes Obel before until a friend pointed me in her direction at the weekend, warning me to look out for the release of this album. So I downloaded it this morning and have now listened to it 3 times in a row. It is truly a thing of haunting beauty, quite challenging in places but a delightful piece of work. Predominantly all you have is Ms Obel's soulful voice accompanied by Piano and the odd string instrument, the double bass being particularly effective. There are a couple of tracks that are purely solo piano, to my ears in the style of Erik Satie, and this quietly insistent style is also to be found on many of the vocal tracks. I love it, but it may not appeal to all. It IS very understated, there are no uptempo numbers, indeed tracks like "Run Cried The Calling" and "the Curse" are decidedly creepy but on the whole this is a very effective album of mood music and if you "get" it, you will love it as well.

After buy 10" single "The Curse", finally the full album "Aventime" was delivered.
It's a mix of classical and ethereal songs, with very delicate vocals, making the musical experience very special.
The vinyl edition has a very good sound quality, and beautiful insert sleeve with lyrics. Include a CD with full album,
