I give up. “Röd” creeps under your skin and cuts like an icicle. It is dark, hard and fierce and even though it took some time for this album to grow on me, it really has a hold on me now. And no one but Jocke Berg can write a love song that is called “Waltz for Satan (Your Friend the Pessimist)” (…”that’s when I wish I could just shut up, silent the pessimist, just be your friend…/if I had any strength, if I had any piece of heart to share, if I had a little love, it was for you”)

He must have a very patient wife.
