CD Review: Jens Lekman 

I Know What Love Isn't (Secretly Canadian)

Swedish singer-songwriter Jens Lekman is all about the big statement. The best song on his third album, and first since 2007's excellent Night Falls Over Kortedala, is called "The End of the World Is Bigger Than Love," and it's stuffed with swirling strings, springtime woodwinds, and Lekman's swooning croon putting a broken heart in perspective. It's grand, eloquent stuff, and it feeds I Know What Love Isn't with a sense of magnificence.
