4.0 excellentAlexander | December 2nd 13

In typical fashion, Olafur writes his pieces with the intention of reeling your heart in.
What is different here is how poppy this album feels. Some of the song tempos are kicked up
ever so slightly and even allows the beautiful voice of Arnor Dan to accompany Olafur in
some of these compositions. For Now I Am Winter is an obvious departure from his
previous work, and most certainly opens up future possibilities for the young Icelandic
composer. A solid album overall, and personally is shaping to be one of my favorites from
2013.

3.5 greatJacob Royal STAFF | February 22nd 13

Olafur's made a much more intimate album here because it actually has an accompanying voice. I'm still trying to figure out how this affects the quality of the album's message, but in the meantime, it should be satisfying enough to know this is a pretty radical departure from Arnalds' norm.
