Certainly, some people will find Aventine a bit hard to take – at first listen, it sounds so pleasant it just washes over, and it’s only on repeated plays that its dark mysteries reveal itself.

Obel is exceedingly good at conveying weariness and disorientation through sound ... A wonderful autumn album.

To say this record is incredible would not suffice at how excellent it actually is. I'm very impressed at how her vocals go perfectly with the accompaniment and how the album is executed from beginning to end. Another gem out of Denmark.

☆☆☆½ ~ Remarkable album. I feel engaged with this consistent and deeply satisfying music in a wholly compelling unique way.

The danish bird, locked voluntarily in a small cage, is whistling her sad song, adapted to the restricted space, in order to express her reluctance to fly no more.
