With "Som en eld och som ett väder" they have made a cultural achievement. These folk and genuine songs are a part of the Swedish history which is worth preserving. There are happy and sad songs. Songs of alcohol and ruin and love and joy. Greger Siljebo's arrangements are also discriminating and the performance is excellent and both witty and serious.
Mats Palmquist, Borås Tidning

Nobody is better suited to perform these songs than Eva Bartholdsson, who is specialised in singing on the borderline between tradition and popular. The male singer Torbjörn Johansson also does justice to the songs.
Bengt Eriksson, Bibliotekstjänst

... many of the songs express longing and sorrow, and perhaps it is in these that the musicians have found the best expression. In many songs they convey a sadness which grips. But the recordings hold a rich atmosphere all over, and Bartholdsson's voice is especially capturing.
Gert-Ove Fridlund, Hallandsposten
