Review in the Gothenburg Post

Magnus Reimer got his first review last week when Göteborgs-Posten gave this website a high mark and wrote some wonderful things.

Review

"My good friend Charlie likes a lot of music, but has only one idol: David Sylvian. The former Japan singer has a faithful fan base who follow him through the atmospheric experiments he ventures into these days, and it wouldn't seem very unlikely if Magnus Reimer was a fan. He makes the same kind of music filled with expression, songs that have a will to truly caress the entire world and show themselves in their full glory. Music that really wants to fill the void and does so. He doesn't hold back on the production gun powder and samples harpsichords and mix them with ambient hammond and combines it all into a very exciting trip. With completely brilliant vocals. I am impressed!"
Daniel Claeson - Göteborgs-Posten

Well, what do I say? That is a very good start.

Världen



Världen was actually the first song I recorded in this Magnus Reimer project and one of the few songs I've done with an almost naked mic. Also, some of the lines below I consider to be my best lyrics to date. Swedish pop music is something I've always found difficult, so this is an attempt to make it into my own thing, I guess.

Lyrics:
Allt vimlar så fjärran
Men du når mig
Vad kan jag begära?
Men du rör mig
Hur kan jag svära
Att du får mig

När världen nu brinner
Flagor svävar i vinden
Gnistrar ut och försvinner
Kan jag nå dig?

Jag räknade orden
Som du dolde
På den rämnande Jorden
Som du rörde
Allting som jag borde
Dina tårar

Nu brinner den världen
Och alla som bär den
Med dom få som tär den
Och jag når dig

Kan jag nå dig?
Kan jag nå dig?
