There's a new vinyl release from 2020 (without CD). I cannot add it here, because of CIP.

Agnes Obel got nothing but praise for her subtle, minimalist debut Philharmonics. She played most of the instruments themselves in, but her piano work in combination with her singing got the most praise. The singer himself calls the piano her second voice and that applies also to her second studio record the case. Nowhere is there a tool or nut too much present, if Obel and her piano can be sufficient, she still refuses to add an element. Aventine is perhaps even more minimalist than her debut record, but her unique sound ensures sufficient warmth and elegance to the dozen songs of enough power. The Danish musician makes the high expectations which they called Philarmonics, with successor Aventine completely true: classical and folk are on contemporary mix. Add to that beautiful texts and there is a real masterpiece.

A wonderful sophomore album by Danish Agnes Obel, who accompanies her own smooth singing with sublime piano playing, and also wrote and produced all of the songs. She is supported by magnificently arranged strings, mainly violin and violoncello, sometimes guitar and harp, and most songs don't depend on the "crutch" of any additional percussion.

From the first minute to the last, the album is of a sombreness and deep melancholy already familiar to those who have heard Obel's debut. This isn't a record to be listened to in the daytime. Darkness and unease keep the album far away from shallow feel-good radio, while honest simplicity dissociate it from cheesy and manipulative emo singing/songwriting. This is music written from the heart, for the heart.

For the second time, Obel managed to produce an album without a single weak track. Still, I would like to pick the instrumental intro, Fuel to Fire, The Curse, and my current favourite Run Cried the Crawling as particularly worth a listen.

Another great album by the Danish singer/songwriter. Like Philharmonics, This album is again a subtle and well crafted record. Great songwriting and lyrics all around. It's a perfect follow up to her debut album, feeling familiar but yet new and refreshing.
