Marlin Lene - Playing My Game (1999) Retail CD
When Lene Marlin stepped up onto the podium at the 1999 MTV European Music Awards to collect the award for best Scandinavian artist, anyone outside of the icy hinterlands could have been forgiven for thinking, "But that's not the woman out of the Cardigans..." Five months later and Lene Marlin's single "Sitting Down Here" was a big hit throughout Europe and now everyone knows her name, even if they can't pronounce it (it's "Le-nay", by the way). Her debut album Playing My Game fittingly opens with the hit single, which sets the tone for the rest of the album--deceptively sweet melodies toppedmore… with bittersweet lyrics of lost loves and youthful alienation. Musically it is hardly challenging, combining the angst of the likes of Fiona Apple with the gentle harmonious vocals of the Corrs. It does beg the question what young, successful, attractive women like Lene and Fiona have to complain about, but if it leads to pretty, folk-tinged pop like this, who's complaining? --Helen Marquis
