Agnes Obel is a Danish singer-songwriter from Berlin. Citizen of Glass is her third studio album release, and it's an exciting blend of jazz, classical, folk and pop music that's definitely worth checking out.

Citizen of Glass is a gorgeous record with sultry female vocals and delicate instrumentation mostly consisting of piano, violins, cellos, and various classical keyboard instruments. The orchestration is dreamy and enticing and brilliantly matched by Obel's ethereal voice. Once you begin to feel the rhythms, it's easy to get lost in the moment. It's strikingly beautiful. Standout tracks include "Stretch Your Eyes," the instrumental "Red Virgin Soil," "It's Happening Again," "Stone," and "Golden Green." Another triumph for Obel, Citizen of Glass is impressive, ambitious work that's elegantly crafted, offering broad brush strokes of emotion that will carry you along completely from start to finish. Highly recommended.
