The Line of Best Fit

Musically and lyrically, Music for People in Trouble retains the dark heart of the previous album, but the mood is more introspective, at least on the surface.

AllMusic

Such militant introspection can sometimes be off-putting, but Music for People in Trouble is rooted in empathy, and even at its most cynical ... the warmth of its core radiates outward.

The Guardian

Another triumph for Sundfør, who delivers complex, maudlin subjects with lightness and majesty.

Music For People In Trouble will perhaps be a surprise for those who came to Sundfør via her last album, but they won’t be disappointed. This is an album full of hidden depths, stark emotion, and most importantly, absolutely beautiful songs.

The 405

Susanne Sundfør’s new album Music For People In Trouble goes for simplicity over technology in her most personal work to date, conveying her feeling of wholeness as a musician again. The rule of ‘less is more’ can be a double-edged sword, but in this case simplicity is the clear winner.

Her previous LP, although conventional by Sundfør’s unique standard, contained moments of wild, gloriously unhinged songcraft but now it feels as if the more leftfield strands of her sound — such as her experimentation with structure — are being pushed to the fore, and it’s thrilling to behold.

Edit. It's definitely a grower

I'm gonna be honest: I was expecting this album to follow the electronic and sophisti-pop influences of "Ten Love Songs". However, I was not disappointed in the slightest. This new work showcases her most vulnerable, eerie and raw side. She said she wanted to feel like an artist again, well, and we never doubted that from her.

The feeling of being carried away, not cherished, not nourished, not taken care of, but carried away by life may strike many as a shock too harsh to handle. And it is, if one suddenly realizes he or she has been cast away like a leave driven aimless by the wind. The utter sense of helplessness that overtakes us all, inevitably, at a certain point of our lives.

It's not as good as Ten Love Songs, but she sounds amazing as she always do. Delivering a triumphant and beautiful orchestra that flows between Folk, Ambient Pop and Chamber Folk.

Favs: Mantra, Reincarnation, Good Luck Bad Luck, Bedtime Story, Undercover and Mountaineers (feat. John Grant).
