The Lion's Roar is the second album from Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit, whose dreamy vocal harmonies have seen them compared to the likes of Fleet Foxes and Joanna Newsom. Sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg are backed by a far grander band than on their 2010 debut full-length The Big Black & the Blue, resulting in a spell-binding collection of songs that include the single and title track.

The female version of Fleet Foxes. This album does not disappoint. If you're in the mood for mellow, this is perfect.
The sisters' voices are clear, lovely and blend beautifully. Carefully crafted instrumental accompaniment enhances poetic lyrics. This CD is special in its straightforward presentation while maintaining subtle musical complexity.
