Customer Review

on 7 February 2009
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.
