4 stars This four-track EP followed in 2003, and although I may not normally write anything about singles and EP's, this contains a song which has to be heard to be believed. That is the second song of the set, an a capella version of "Til Deg", a song which originally appeared on the debut. This young lady is prepared to shred all protection, and provide wonderful vocals with nowhere to hide, and again her confidence belies her years. This in turn is followed by a live version of "Bendik og Årolilja", also originally on the debut, and she sounds just as home here fronting a rock band in front of a crowd as she does in the studio. The contrast between the two is quite incredible, except that at all times she is in total control, no matter what is going on around her. The band are heavier in a live environment, and even though they stay melodic there is a crunching bounce to their sound, so much so that one can imagine a mosh pit happily forming.
