SCORE: 3 HUZZAH!*
Drink it up!

It would be difficult to find a more extraordinary release in 2015. Cosmic!

So here we have "Ten Love Songs” her sixth release if you count the remake of her first and the side project "A Night at Salle Pleyel”. With "The Brothel” (2010) she started working with Jaga Jazzist’s Lars Horntveth on production, a relationship which has continued through her 2012 release "The Silicone Veil” Each of these albums have evolved and moved forward.

* The DPM Rating System
When we rate an album or concert etc we rate it on the "Huzzah!" system. A score can be between 1 and 3 huzzahs:
1 Huzzah! - The reviewer likes it. You should give it a listen!
2 Huzzah! - The reviewer recommends it - and is delighted it is part of his/her collection
3 Huzzah! - The reviewer strongly recommends it - and it has already entered heavy rotation on his/her personal playlists.

On rare occasions there may be a 0 Huzzah! review. The reasons will be explained in the article. On equally rare occasions you may even see a 4 Huzzah ... well explain that another time :)

We dont do negative reviews because we review what we like.

I agree with you!
She has ascended to the musical stratosphere, which is sparsely populated with people like Kate Bush and Joni Mitchell.
