Editorial Reviews

Her fourth album release following up the award winning "Smiling & Waving". The daughter of the Norwegian jazz composer and saxophonist Jan Garbarek, Anja spent six years in London before moving back to Norway in 2003. "I have a love-hate relationship with London. The single "The Last Trick" was written when we didn't like each other very much." Many of the album's lyrics are inspired by crime and horror books, "They gave me the dark language I needed to express myself," Garbarek says. "Can I Keep Him?" was inspired by notorious London serial killer Dennis Nielsen and features prominently in the Luc Besson film "Angel-A"

5.0 out of 5 stars A magic record. January 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
An album that has been a fixture of every CD player I can get near since the moment it arrived in my possession, Anja Garbarek's "Briefly Shaking" is in many ways a vast departure from anything she's done previously-- keeping the elements of electronica and the layered orchestral instrument arrangements, Garbarek for this record partnered with Icelandic alternative musician Gisli, who handles the majority of the instrumental duties. The result is stunning-- a slice of modern alternative art rock-- like an update on Brian Eno's '70s pop albums or a Kate Bush filtered through Seattle, or sometimes a bit of both.

Like the rest of Garbarek's album, diversity is key here-- whether a minimalist arranged alt-rock workout ("Dizzy With Wonder", with a comfortable middle register vocal below the stripped back pulse, "Shock Activities", pushed forward and forced onward by horn arrangements led by father Jan on honking baritone sax, explosive "This Momentous Day"), or chasing the ghost of early '80s Kate Bush (sublimely overarranged "The Last Trick", achingly beautiful and yet downright creepy "Can I Keep Him", a first person telling of serial killer Dennis Nilsen's acts) or just downright different (piano-driven and electronica hinting "My Fellow Riders"), it all works, and it all works perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 thumbs up and 5 stars April 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I was struck by "last trick" playing on the radio and ordered this album, without knowing anything from anja garbarek. See the review from Dede Korkut, I could not have expressed it better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful March 30, 2011
By MWW
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is my third copy. The first I lent to a friend and will never get back. The second got moved around from car to home to car and finally got too scratched to play. Having said that...I think Ms. Gabarek channels the flavor of Blade Runner or Twin Peaks. The album can be dark, moody, and playful within the same song. I think the strongest tracks are Sleep, The Momentous Day, and Dizzy with Wonder. I like the mix of noises, vocals and melody.
