Sena, the biggest record label on the market, seems to have an endless supply of former Icelandic Idol contestants to put in front of a microphone, covering old songs like Always on My Mind, all yielding the same results. For the most part these are pretty girls who can hold a tune somewhat decently. Bríet Sunna delivers for her part, singing pretty when told to, but devoid of feeling or emotion. The hired session players trudge through the songs and surely earn the money the record label paid them. This sounds like karaoke and that is what it is. Better than your average drunk-on-a-Saturday night karaoke, but still karaoke. Some of the Icelandic lyrics are so embarrassingly bad that they almost justify buying the album for a short laugh but, probably, it will just depress you in the end. Stay clear of this.
