Editorial Reviews

2012 album from the Norwegian singer/songwriter. Much like her music, the path that led Ane Brun to It All Starts With One was peaceful, unhurried and full of unexpected, subtle surprises. It's taken her from her small Norwegian hometown of Molde, to Barcelona where she was a street performer, and across the US last year supporting Peter Gabriel and singing on his New Blood album. The adventures culminated with the making of It All Starts with One, a platinum hit in Norway for which she just won their Grammy equivalent, the Spellemann award, for best female artist. Ane Brun has created an album full of struggles and the strength it takes to move forward. It All Starts with One is a revelatory work by an uncompromising artist at the height of her powers.

Ane Brun's new album "It All Starts With One" shows the singer-songwriter's darker side. Accompanied by accentuated drumming and minimalist arrangements, her fragile voice carries you through the melancholic songs with lightness and grace.

Ane Brun was once called another suicidal Scandinavian singer. She made fun of it in a Berlin concert a couple of years ago. Her new album "It All Starts With One" will probably provoke more comments like that.

Disk One is a carefully put together, tight and matching series of songs, while Disk Two is more of a varied mix of styles. While it took me some time to connect to some of the songs, I still agree with the BBC that Ane Brun "has managed to create her finest record yet".

The first ten songs are not easily accessible, and surely nothing you'd like to put on as background music. I had to sit down and listen to them carefully to appreciate them.

The second disk in the deluxe version of "It all starts with one" comes almost as a relief after the melancholic journey of the first one. It is less intense and more playful, and therefore more accessible.

It is probably clear by now that I would recommend to buy the deluxe version to have that balance of new and old Ane Brun. She has developed as an artist, and still stays the same.

When I first stumbled upon Ane Brun on Youtube, I chuckled when one viewer called the video and music mesmerizing. However, before I knew it, I was closing my eyes and being sucked into her world. The album follows right on par with her other songs. If you haven't listened to her yet, I insist you do it now. You won't regret it.

Ane Brun took a chance in this album. Its arrangements are very different to her previous ones, and I think that it is a good thing when artists decide to do something new without losing his/her identity.

Strings, piano, guitar and percussion are there, but they are so subtle that, except for a couple of tracks, you can barely notice them. However, it's that subtlety what makes this albums stand out for they highlight Ane Brun's beautiful voice.

All tracks are a delight. "These Days", "The Light From One" and "Worship" are the highlights. They got inside my head the minute that I first listened to them and never left. However, "One" and "Do You Remember?" tend to sound like Broadway pieces (these are the couple of tracks I mentioned above), which I find off tune with the mood set by the rest of the tracks.

All in all, an original album that sounds like nothing I have listened to before done either by her or other artists.

There seems to be a new, irresistible, if rather gentle force blowing in from Sweden.
Ane Brun is from Norway, but is pretty much an honourary Swede, having lived in Stockholm for the past decade.
Her fourth album, "It All Starts With One", could well be a major breakthrough for her, coming as it does on the back of tours with the likes of Peter Gabriel and Ani DiFranco.
Brun's sound has developed from her original folk and blues influences, with more orchestration present and, on the single "Do You Remember", a frantic burst of tribal percussion. Yet it remains Brun's voice that's the focus, a marvellously clear, sometimes tremulous instrument capable of transmitting so much emotion with a single syllable.
The guest spots on the album help to flesh out the sometimes spectral, minimal atmosphere. The aforementioned "Do You Remember" is a particular surprise, with a truly massive drum sound and backing vocals courtesy of the young Swedish folk siblings First Aid Kit. Its irresistible rhythm is reminiscent of Lyyke Li's "Get Some", which isn't so surprising when you discover that Li's drummer Per Eklund has a credit.
Even better is the appearance of José González who lends his unmistakeably downbeat vocals to "Worship". He blends beautifully with Brun's similarly paced voice and, over a stately six minutes, gently produces one of the best moments of the album. The similarly gorgeous "Oh Love" is also a standout, an acoustic ballad lifted to a higher plane by a lovely, subtle string arrangement.

Great 2 Disc Collection. After listening to the songs on this album, I went back and re-listened to her other albums with a fresh ear and newfound appreciation. There seems to be a number of eclectic influences in her style here, but it works! Overall, it is mysteriously upbeat yet somber at once, but definitely what I think is her most mature album. Play it on your good stereo with the volume pumped up to hear all the backup instruments. Lovely. Makes me want want to dance when I'm in the kitchen cooking. If you've never listened to Brun before, start here and work backwards.

I wouldn't have thought that I would like this sort of "popular" album, but I'm very fond of it. Great lyrics, Ana Brun's sultry voice, and some very dynamic arrangements, especially with the heavy rhythm on an assortment of drums: what's not to like? I recommend it.
