Reviews of the album “DIECI” (GDN Records 2013)

XL REPUBBLICA – 7.5/10 – “Colpisce al cuore con dieci cover illuminanti” 

ROCKOL – 4/5  “..non ci sono momenti deboli nelle dieci canzoni del disco.” 

IMPATTO SONORO –  “Dieci stupisce per varietà, validità e soprattutto disarmante sincerità.”

SHIVER“..riescono nel difficile compito di reggere il confronto con l’originale e, anzi, spesso di risultare ancora più belle.” 

LOST HIGHWAYS“Dieci si è rivelato un lavoro davvero interessante.” 

SENTIRE ASCOLTARE – 7.1/8 – “Il risultato è un bel salto nel vuoto, con l’adrenalina della “scoperta” a suggellare un disco comunque riuscito” 

ROCKAMBULA – 7.5/8 – “Dieci rimane un disco assai godibile.”


Reviews of the album “YOU GOTTA GET READY” (GDN Records 2012)


JAZZTHETIK “Deservedly the comparison with artists like Bruce Springsteen, Rufus Wainwright and Ryan Adams become more frequent and louder.” 

ECLIPSED “He confirms again that the best American music comes from Scandinavia. Also on this work he celebrates minimal songs with biggest possible finesse.“ 

AMM MUSIK MAGAZIN“Keep It Shining On The Inside” or” Some Work On You” are breezy and catchy and are on a par with songs from Rufus Wainwright or Jeff Buckley.” 

SOUND & IMAGE“You gotta get ready is an all around pleasant and discreet album that tells lots of stories you enjoy listening to.”

OHRENSCHMAUS“Discreet but enduring. Compliment!”


* AFTENPOSTEN: 5/6 – Convincing, effortless and steady – a singer songwriter of international standards.

* TELEMARKS AVISA: 5/6 –  This album is a treasure!

* STAVANGER AFTENBLAD: 5/6 – Songs with a silent power.

* FÆDRELANDSVENNEN: 5/6 – The upturn! With his exceptional skills as a songwriter, he manages to stick out from the rest.

* HAMAR ARBEIDERBLAD: 5/6 –  Full control – never has his musical style and his self confidence as an artist come through as clear and convincing as on this album.


RUMORE: The fourth album of the Norwegian has hit spot on!

ROCKERILLA: Ballads of contaminating musicality. 

BLOW UP: When the sound and the production is as sparse as on YGGR, the songwriting must be of such standards and quality that it sustains the entire album – in front of this immensely difficult task Nordgarden stands the test.

JAM: Not singing along to the choruses on “Keep It Shining on the Inside” or “These Lovesick Blues” is almost impossible, and without noticing it you are conquered.
