Review[edit]

For the first time in his rich and multifaceted career Bjørnstad give us an album with a trio constellation. He has a strong relationship to the melody and the melody to him. We have through some 30 years had the pleasure to witness this mutual love affair, and it has in no way diminished. Here we encounter melody and Bjørnstad in a new constellation and both thrive. Even though this is the first meeting between the three, it is obvious that there are large doses of empathy present and that they have a lot to talk about.[3]
