A simply sublime return for the a-ha front man. This album was all of what I expected from his previous offerings. A lot smoother in production and mature in tone. The songs vary from uplifting, soaring melodies to submissive, gentle reflection. An easy listen and a rewarding buy, showing off the bredth and range of his voice.

If you come looking for a pop album, look somewhere else. A-ha it ain't ...

This is going to be a personal favourite.The stuff Morten produces just gets better and better.This was well worth waiting for.I can not fault a single track the whole package is fantastic.All i can say is like a fine wine or a mature cheese and vintage port ....this stuff is so mellow and haunting and unforgetable ....hopefully there will be many more to review.....

Letter from Egypt is an exquisite work of thoughtfulness and care brought to us by one of the most distinctive voices on the scene today. Morten's first solo album was just over twelve years ago, with 1995's Wild Seed, but fate intervened in the years and a-ha regrouped in 1999, producing three albums in the years since. Now, Morten has once again taken the proverbial drivers' seat and shown us his creativity, both as a lyricist and a musician in this solo work. Letter from Egypt seems to be direct follow-up to Wild Seed and after a few listens, one can deduce the spiritual and curious side of Morten as he pushes the proverbial envelope in crafting some beautiful ballads (Letter from Egypt, A Name is a Name, With You - With Me) as well as some decidedly rockable hits (Darkspace, Send Me an Angel, Movies) all along using his voice as an instrument, hitting the highs, finessing the lows and massaging every note inbetween. As with a fine hand-crafted wine, this album has been well worth the wait.

One of those albums that gets better every time you listen to it - and I do!
Atmospheric, heart-rending and heart-warming by turn. Morten's voice has lost NOTHING over the decades - quite the contrary. If it is perhaps not so perfect it is more human and you feel jealous of his wife/lover whoever you are!
Brilliant songwriting at its best.

This cd unfortunately hasn't had the airplay it deserved, and as all a-ha fans in the uk know anything released by these three stupendously talented norsemen, just does not get the time and energy devoted to it by the uk's music and media industry, it really is very puzzling.
Anyway, when I 1st put it on the song "darkspace" I'd heard from Morten's myspace page, just lifts you up and transports you to somewhere else and there is not a song out of place here either. My personal favourites are "there are many ways to die", a haunting and curious song that touches your soul in an unexplained way; "Should the rain fall" which is beautiful in its simple way of saying I will still be here no matter what happens to me. I adore "Anyone" a sublime love song to a girl (of course) and "with you" an instantly memorable tune that stays with you all day.
Morten has shown what an artist he is and master of his craft musically, lyrically and I'm pretty sure his artistic vision has been achieved with the production. If he is to leave the music behind and do sculpture as he mentioned he might that would be a pity as not everyone could access his art in that way. I do hope that he continues to write evocative and spellbinding ballads some more.
Anyone who says it's mature I'll agree with up to a point, but somehow that word does it no justice. To describe it as dull I would say to you, have you got ears? I mean really listen to what Morten is sharing with us, yes I understand why you say dull but you are missing the essence, yes it's nice but there is a substantial and mysterious filling in this particular chocolate! It's a damn near perfect piece and it helps to settle me and my baby daughter at the end of the day.
Somehow listening to this man's soothing voice is like coming home.

Mark's wife here. After discovering Morten's fabulous album WILD SEED last year, I can't tell you just how much I was looking forward to listening to LETTER FROM EGYPT, after my husband bought it me for Christmas...what an absolute gem this is!! From the moment I put it on, my heart lifted, not to mention melted! Yes, I am a Morten fan - I've adored him since I was twelve, but I believe that this album will appeal to many, not just fans like me. It begins with 'Darkspace', a truly uplifting song where, half way through, you really do feel that the slow rising wave Morten is singing about is almost upon you, breaking.(Just listen to it.) 'Send Me An Angel' is next, wonderfully different with its bassy, slightly rocky tones and fast pace. I adore the third song 'We Will Never Speak Again', as it shows off Morten's unique voice, reaching those beautiful high notes. Just a bit of trivia here - Magne Furuholmen (aka Mags, Morten's A-ha band mate) wrote this one, and half way through the song, you can hear him singing in it! I won't review each and every song - you can discover them for yourself, but to me, the other ones that particularily stand out are 'With You - With Me', a truly beautiful song that moves me each time I listen to it, and also the wonderful 'Anyone', with its almost haunting opening and use of an array of instruments, such as the accustic guitar, piano, bass guitar, cello and violins. This is simply a stunning album! Here's to the next one.
