Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

ANNA TERNHEIM

Halfway to Fivepoints

2008-05-11

Anna Ternheim has walked away with most of Sweden's songwriting and female artist awards for the last couple of years. Her emotional songs about failed relationships and loneliness must have made her the "Heartbreak Queen" of that country. She doesn't stray very far from romantic angst on this release, and either delivers these confessionals with lush backgrounds ("Girl Laying Down" and "Lover's Dream") or spare arrangements (the Fleetwood Mac cover "Little Lies" and the title track). I think she hits her intended mark best on the latter method, where the sentiment is laid bare and not covered with orchestral pomp and circumstance. MJVD R-Pop (Swedish)
