The Norwegian pop star Sissel has the kind of haunting voice that lingers long with a listener. Ethereal, gripping in its clarity, fragile in its openness, yet secure in its projection, it’s also a voice that can handle a world of song. On Sissel this eclectic stylist brings her lovely vocal manner to a wide variety of material, ranging from Neil Sedaka’s “Solitaire” to such traditional folk tunes as the American “Shenandoah” and the Scandinavian “Lare Meg A Kjenne” to saxophonist Jan Gabarek’s “Molde Canticle,” which Sissel approaches as a wordless vehicle for her soaring tones. If touches of Celine Dion and Enya can be felt in Sissel’s interpretations of the pop-ish ballads that make up the majority of the album, she still brings her own distinct sensibility to the project, one that should draw considerably more American listeners to her.
