    Contrary to what The Pheonix said, i think that 'Wapas Karn(m?)a' breaks this album much more than making it - it's out of place in among great great tracks like 'My Boys' , 'To Lose Someone' and pretty much the rest of the album. Hopeful stuff. Easily one of the best albums this year. I look forward to hearing what follows this.

  1. Even though she's borrowed a lot here--from Animal Collective, from Pakistani music--Bergsman manages to give it all a tender, sad-yet-sprightly touch that's completely her own.
  2. East of Eden is a worldly sounding album that still maintains an intimately personal feel. Affectionate, intriguing and absorbing, Bergsman’s music is of the finest variety.
  3. The only thing is presence and the present. The modest conclusion to a modest and warm album, is that Eden might be closer than you think.
