Anyone who has already had the pleasure of experiencing Kari Bremnes live can look forward to this album even more because it is special in several respects. Perhaps you then belonged to the privileged audience that attended the recordings in January 2007 during your tour of Germany. The two LPs from “Reise” are documents full of musical intensity and wonderful intimate moments when you hear the famous pin drop. Kari Bremnes embodies Scandinavia's songwriting like no other, combining modernity with tradition. Her voice is extremely versatile, you can quickly see her singing training, which she received at a young age. There is only a slight sense of Nordic coolness here, their songs seem too emotional, full of pleasant warmth and high expressiveness.

For your tour, she added the band to a quintet, which was very beneficial to the sound and its effects. Although most of the numbers were accompanied calmly and sparingly, there are also faster pieces that the band emphasized. Bremnes is simply wonderful live, even if her studio albums offer excellent music enjoyment, but she really comes to life on stage. This creates magical moments and passages, the rhythm of which sweeps away even the last listener. Most of the pieces she sang here in Norwegian, only two songs were in English. By the way, the German word Reise is synonymous in Norwegian.
In addition to the wonderful music of this pretty singer, this LP fascinates with a brilliant recording that goes far beyond the usual measure of live recordings. It gives a very nice impression of what actually happened on these evenings. It is also worth turning up the volume control a little further here, because a very realistic atmosphere creates the illusion of being there live. Folded cover with many photos of the concerts.

Tegelijkertijd is het ook een reis door de tijd met zowel twintig jaar oude als ook nieuwere songs uit haar carrire waarbij het merendeel van de veertien nummers van deze dubbel lp door Kari zelf geschreven zijn De echte fan zal dan ook iedere song herkennen

Van Litt Happiness Kan Ikkje Skade dat afkomstig is van haar meeste recente studio album Over En By via songs van haar Engelstalige albums Norwegian Mood en Youd Have To Be Here tot oude favorieten als Togsang en Skrik die in de loop der jaren verder uitgerijpt zijn en daardoor nog meer aan zeggingskracht hebben gewonnen

Wie Kari ooit live gezien heeft weet dat zij zich normaliter slechts laat begeleiden door drummer/percussionist Helge Norbakken en pianist/arrangeur Bengt Hanssen Voor deze concerttour heeft zij echter twee extra musici aangetrokken in de personen van gitarist Hallgrim Bratberg en bassist Sondre Meisfjord Daarin ligt meteen ook het grootste verschil De bekende van oorsprong minimalistische songs die een mengeling zijn van pop jazz folk en singer/songwriter klinken daardoor nog indringender en vaak ook dreigender en donkerder Dat alles opgetekend in een rijke sfeervolle opname maakt dit album een must voor alle Bremnes fans en met name voor hen die haar nog niet eerder op de bhne zagen en hoorden
