    He knows great stories can be found in even the smallest moment, and that is something worth cherishing.
  2. An Argument With Myself is nothing short of spectacular at any length, crowning Lekman as one of today's most fascinating and gifted musicians.

    An Argument with Myself seems like more of an attempt at an encapsulation of Lekman's talent--to use the smallest things as gateways into work more ponderous but still relatable, achingly pretty but still occasionally biting, adventurous but familiar--than a showcase of new directions.

    It's a great mini-dose of Lekman charm that should be welcome to anyone that's been missing him these four years.

    Pretty much everything about Jens except the scale of his melodies is gentle and unassuming, and there is a quiet honesty here that is unique pleasure.

    The first three songs on this EP are strong, the fourth misty, the fifth sweet and slight, but all know melody and all fill out a portrait of a young man your daughter should only bring home to mother.

    His latest EP pushes his glossy pop inclinations even further; the five tracks are quick and sweet, gussied up with quirky instrumentation. [#82, p.57]

    This five-song EP is a pleasantly jumbled affair that shows Lekman's lyrical facility continues to improve, while his stylistic palette continues to broaden

    Lekman's new An Argument with Myself EP is a compact gem.

    It is utterly top shelf, almost reaching the dazzling heights of the songs found on his singles collection Oh You're So Silent Jens.

    It's an incredibly twee trip around the world, and while the EP lacks anything as audacious as the widescreen bluster of "I Remember Every Kiss" (from 2007's Night Falls Over Kortedala), there's still a strain of gutsiness in the personalized "get well soon" card of "A Promise."
