Malena Ernman's album came out recently in Sweden. In case you forgot, she was the winner of this year's Melodifestivalen with her wonderful entry, La Voix. I really want to like the full album more than I do (too many goopy Celine Dion-lite ballads and not enough bombast), but there were some tracks that really hit me over the head the first listen. Sempre Libera is another Kempe track, and a splendid one at that. For all intents and purposes, it's La Voix Part II--totally over the top and all the better for it. There's also a total camptastic dance track on the album called Tragedy. Not sure about that one yet, but it's definitely different. I would've preferred an entire album in the La Voix style of layered operatics over dance beats, but at least we got a few other tracks in that vein.

I first started coming to your blog two years ago when you did a mid-year recap. Seems this year has been a bit slower, but do you plan on doing that again this year?

I have been planning to do it, and probably will in the next week or two.
It has been a very, very busy couple of weeks, mostly due to an exciting project I've got going. So it's a good kind of busy. I'm trying my best to keep up the blog. The rest of the month should be easier. :)
