Dramatic, poignant and grim storytelling, conveyed with impressive authority

“.. The style and the story on album number two is associated with those she launched with album number one. But where The Book of the Mermaid was referring to Hans Andersen’s The Little Mermaid, When I Was a Soldier answers the question: What if the Mermaid had continued her life as a human being? Rübner-Petersen’s response is extreme and cruel. The 11 songs on the mermaid’s fate are elements in Rübner-Petersen larger tale of the mermaid and human. And the story is dramatic, poignant and cruel. Some passages reminiscent of songs by Marianne Faithful and Tom Waits but nevertheless, – all the songs appear utterly original.”
