Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-09-01 
Fantastic neo-folk, regular folk and a bit of “martial pop” & ambient sounds from Luxemborg (it’s in Europe, look it up). ROME is primarily the work of JeRome Reuter whose evocative voice is a bit of Leonard Cohen & Scott Walker. The lyrics are all dedicated/about the Spanish Civil War & the survivors. Very melancholic and often sullen albeit pretty sounding.

(((((1)))) Ocean & violin, dialogue in Spanish
(((((2))))) Slow acoustic intro with slow vocals over samples of Italian dialogue. Beats come in around 2 min. Abrupt ending.
((((((3)))))) Pretty ballad with samples of Italian voices in a train station.
(((((4))))) Flowing flamenco styled guitars with dark & very nice vocals. Plus, samples in Spanish & German.
((((5)))) Ambient interlude with German voice (part translation: Without hate, Without a Flag
No Duke! No Savior!”
(((6))) Catchy but oddly Depeche Mode-gone acoustic sound. Not bad for what it is.
((((((7)))))) Nicely strummed acoustic guitars with the very smoky & Leonard Cohen-ish vocals with choral backing voices. Great stuff!
(((((8))))) Dark ambient piece with slow voice in what sounds like Italian.
(((((9))))) Melacholic, slow but very easy to follow neo-folk bliss.
(((((10)))))) Sombre and very catchy. Operatic German backing and a fantastic chorus and random wartime German samples.
(((11)))) Very mellow folkish pop. A little too mellow here though.
(((((((12))))))) Marital backing and spoken, thought provoking lyrics
