“Thirty years since Abba dissolved, their fellow Swedish pop intellectual Jens Lekman presents his own break-up album, and the quite wonderful I Know What Love Isn’t can be safely filed as a masterpiece of the hankies-ready splinter genre. This sophisticated, grown-up pop craftsmanship ought to elevate the 31-year-old from Gothenburg from his present existence as niche indie concern to classic songwriter status. Lekman, like fellow Swede Frida Hyvonen, makes wonderful use of language. “You don’t get over a broken heart,” he professes poignantly on The World Moves On, “you just learn to carry it gracefully.” On the crushing I Want A Pair Of Cowboy Boots, he appears to serve up an echo of Gordon Lightfoot’s If You Could Read My Mind. This is the level of company that Lekman belongs in now.” – John Skilbeck, 9/10 – Associated Press
