Västerås concert review

VLT.se has a review of last night's concert at Sigurdsgatan 25 in Västerås here:

The reviewer, Staffan Andersson, gave the concert 3 out of 5. Here's a translation of some of the review:

"Most have noticed that Salem Al Fakir has cut off his characteristic hair. Now he is no longer a frisky newcomer, now he wants to prove that he is an artist to be reckoned with for many years to come. On Saturday, he came to Sigurdsgatan 25 and met a devoted audience.... The musical excesses of the first disc are completely gone....The concert is homogeneous and, yes, mature. But sometimes it becomes almost too standardized, "Good Song" is wasted and becomes just a song in the crowd. Overall, it's still a marked improvement. Salem Al Fakir is no longer at a piano and plays tricky rhythms. He runs aroud and dances, and the audience seems to like the new Salem Al Fakir, and it is to be hoped that he continues on this path".
