Lost In A Moment - Review by Rune Slyngstad
Source : Avisa Nordland
Lene Marlin's development as a songwriter is tangibly marked by stagnation.

It goes somewhat the wrong way for Lene Marlin. She started with her best record, 'Playing My Game'. The sequel 'Another Day' was approved, but was the notch under in quality. 'Lost In A Moment' continues to draw up a curve going downhill. There is not talk about any crisis or about a career in free fall. However, we were perhaps expecting a little more when this should be music marked by a period with an excess creativity.

Lene Marlin's development as a songwriter is tangibly marked by stagnation. You get no surprises on 'Lost In A Moment'. This is easily recognizable Lene Marlin pop, even though she for the first time has been in studio with the Stargate boys in Trondheim. She gave herself notice about a more happy pop than what she's been giving us previously in front of the album release, but is still singing about sore and difficult love with her usual melancholic touch.

However, here are some good bits. The wistful 'All I Can Say', the single 'How Would It Be', and the naked and beautiful 'It's True' are the better. They constitute the top songs on an album that never appear as weak, but which still will probably not become the larger success compared to what she has accomplished earlier.
