    As striking as her career-defining 2010 album, The Brothel. [Sep 2017, p.92]

    Music for People in Trouble perhaps doesn’t have the crossover appeal that Ten Love Songs had, and its head-on engagement with contemporary struggles will certainly not be for everyone. But for those who are done with escapism, at least for an hour or so, its sustained mood brings rich rewards.

    Music for People in Trouble is poetry without being poetry. It is one of the gentlest excursions of art pop to come this year. Susanne Sundfør might have perfected a sound she has been searching for.

    Another triumph for Sundfør, who delivers complex, maudlin subjects with lightness and majesty.

    Music For People in Trouble led Sundfør away from euphoria but, in its own way, also gave her the tools to find herself again in music. Ultimately this directed her down path, through singing in the purest of forms and composing, to finding tenderness in love and matters of the heart.

    The end product is another outstanding record, executed with fearlessness and grace.

    Sundfor's first for Bella Union suffers from an occasional excess of affectations, her melismatic vocal style an acquired taste. Fortunately, she's best at her most intimate, this sixth collection's dominate quality. [Sep 2017, p.38]

    Not for everyone. For me, as a big fan of Susanne Sundfor, this is a very important album that I think will be as important as OK Computer.Not for everyone.

    I love this album. Not for everyone, as it is very emotional and atmospheric.

    Music for people in trouble is an album full of feelings, simplicity and atmospheric parts.
    The album is different from her previous one, but Susanne Sundfør's voice is there: sensitive, kind and "wavy".
    The Sound of war is a great song, while No one believes in Love anymore is more than a song: it is a FEELING FOR THE BEING...
