    I miss Margareta as soprano. Emma is great as well, of course, but Margareta brought a playful charm to the group that's felt missing since her departure.

    Still one of my favourites. Their album "Original" still gets regular plays from me, even after nearly twenty years.

    Can't say I've listened a whole lot at this band, but some of the songs are amazing. Especially that "Somna min vän".

    HipHip-varianten av dem är inte heller så pjåkig.

    The Real Group has taken an amazing journey from challenging Vocal Jazz to an a cappella fusion of multiple genres. Their Stamning album has AMAZINGLY beautiful classical choral works, and their Commonly Unique and In The Middle of Life albums are intimately self-disclosing. I've fallen in love with these guys and enjoy every track on their albums from their Debut album to In the Middle of Life.
