JOHN FRANDSEN: Songs
4/6 Hjerter

"Frandsen havde flere kanter som ung. Ofte er sangene langsommeligt søgende i forreven melankoli. De forskellige sangere gør pladen varieret, og det er styrken."

JOHN FRANDSEN: Songs
"Sublimt lavpulserende, næsten udåndende sange, kontra snublende staccato fornøjelser. Et forunderligt fikserbillede af musik står til rådighed for det opladte sind."
