The Swedish poet/songwriter Erik Winqvist on this very personal, emotional, funny, absurd and touchingly amusing CD presents his new material. Winqvist is unique in the Swedish tradition of outspoken and intimite inviting bards and this collection of songs (It is in Swedish!) brings some very catchy and earwakening poems set to curiously exploring music - it is like Winqvist is sitting in front of you in a stool, making his stories up as you go on together...

DalaDemokraten: "Erik Winqvist has created an unusual CD. Something very different. A CD where one track can be called Dynga och vallmo (Feces and Poppies) and another Oh vad jag älskar synd (Oh, How I Love Sin). And why not? The titles feel quite natural in the context. Erik Winqvist takes it to the edge, but still keeps it together. In his own way. The CD is divided into 7 parts. First, there is an introduction with the title, “A Happy Meditation about spring. Seven songs signed Erik Winquist and a text by Ferlin.” After this comes Poetens sånger (The Poet’s Songs), consisting of four songs and Peter’s song, all penned by Winquist; then, Standards with Swedish texts by Erik Winquist, followed by a few more sections. Erik Winqvist writes that the Poet’s songs were written for a good poet friend of his. Erik Winqvist himself can also be called a poet. A performance poet. What he does is personal and fun and decidedly thought-provoking. The CD is about something, but what that is can vary from person to person. And what’s wrong with needing to think about it? Erik Winqvist is telling us something, and it is up to us to understand."

Dagen: " This CD contains Swedish folk melodies in the style of Bellman, and some of the tracks, with texts by among others Nils Ferlin, have a spiritual aspect. Some tracks are purely instrumental. Some of the material is not for sensitive ears. The ode to sin is possibly ironic, but to a Christian, it feels deeply repugnant. In this particular case, it doesn’t matter how accomplished the classically trained singer/songwriter happens to be."

Kammarmusiknytt: " This is an odd product from GASON and Erik Winqvist: First a thoughtful booklet text about the aim of the CD and the possible reception of it, then 19 tracks with music and texts by Mr Winqvist and by "The Poet" - maybe also the same author? The direct and personal speaking in the singing that we met on his Taube CD we find also here - a very fine, well fuctioning intimicy."
