Politiken Gives Ásgeir’s English Album Five Stars

Danish newspaper Politiken awarded Ásgeir Trausti Einarsson’s upcoming English-language album, In the Silence, five stars out of six in a review published on Friday. The album, which comes out in January, is the English version of his best-selling album Dýrð í dauðaþögn.

Reykjavík-based U.S. musician John Grant helped to translate the texts over to English. Skotte pointed out that translating lyrics can often end badly but that this isn’t the case with In the Silence and concluded that Jónsi from Sigur Rós has a rival.
