Expressen: “Marie is a brilliant singer”

"You can see that she loves her job and she really infected the people with her enthusiasm," Måns Ivarsson writes in Expressen. He rates Marie's live performance 3 out of 5.

Ivarsson says that Marie is a brilliant singer, but her lyrics don't catch. He thinks it may be that Marie is more of a women's thing.

"Her repertoire has a couple of pearls, but musically is pretty much only 80s' nonsense. It sounds like she's found a mixture of bands from 1985: Bangles, Fleetwood Mac, U2. Skillful, but lifeless sound." Ivarsson thinks that the fast-tempo material is clearly the best, but ballads sound old and indifferent. "What saved the show was Marie herself and her charisma."

According to Ivarsson, Marie's show was 90-minute long compilation of 16 hits. In the middle of her show she had a solo performance with only her and a grand piano. The show was ended with "Äntligen" and "Den sjunde vågen".
