"Vocally stunning, "Near and Far" is a fascinating album with a unique sound. Henriksson truly shows you that she knows her strengths and leaves you in awe of her talent. Guitarist Bengt Andersson and Mats Nyman, who played the remaining instruments, bring Henriksson's already ethereal voice to a new level. If you're in need of something magical, look no further - "Near and Far" will have you under its spell in no time."
