"I love this CD. It has beauty, power, passion and guts." [Alex Monaghan / FolkWorld]

Annbjørg Lien´s “Aliens Alive” is more than just a live recording.

What better way for Annbjørg Lien to celebrate her three latest releases, than giving us the best parts live! And rather than just repeating the albums, its a creative and colourful exploration of themes and textures. From the contemplative beginning like a clear mountain spring, through rapids and cascades, the album feels like a Norwegian river, a beautifull tapestry of melodic and rhytmic cross currents. The band creates potent and poignant images. Its a marvellous flow of spirit, sound and harmonies.

Its another of those steps into musical wonders which Annbjørg and her companions do so well. There are moments of aural revelations when keyed and Hardanger fiddles interplay with guitar, flute, percussion and keyboards. Its again a moving beyond boundaries and barriers, a mystical blend of past and present. Its a visionary voyage from the atmospheric voice of the Space Age to the voice of the Sami Aboriginals.

The music is alive! Annbjørg Lien´s Aliens Alive is more than just a live recording.

Adventurous Lien

The new arrangements and improvisations are summing up where she’s at just now, and pointing ahead. Embracing traditional Scandinavian music as well as modern forms, Lien gives us a vision of adventurous music rarely seen.

The Tradition is Alive

Mellow and monumental, the album evokes a futuristic nostalgia. Annbjørg once again shows the relevance of roots and real traditions, magically bridging the past and the future. Profound and simple, it captures your senses. Its music speaking to the heart and the mind. It enters your deepest emotions, makes you smile, listen and even sometimes think.

Its more than a live recording, its alive.
