This is an album filled with love and religious songs. Regína Ósk is more than a capable singer and producer Barði Jóhannsson of Bang Gang is a competent producer. The result though, is yet another acoustic guitar and piano-oriented, slow, unoriginal CD for middle-aged people of all ages. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. There are a few tracks that show some minor variations from the formula and hint at something greater. Most notable is the melancholy and eerie Hvað tekur við, which is incidentally the only track Barði cowrites. Í Djúpum Dal (In a Deep Valley) is not an album that will make its mark on music history. But it does what it tries to do fairly well: to provide the world with more slow love songs sung by a female angelic voice. Buy this for your grandmother on your father’s side as a Christmas present.
