The Chase is an album that tells a love story summarized in the first track which gives the record its name, and just like that it sets the different stages in this story. The loss of someone you miss, the mental and physical realization, and the falling in and out of love once again.

Marit’s voice and sound are like magic realism, bringing such happy tones to lines like:

I’ve got a secret I’m dying to tell you
You’re sound asleep, I don’t want to wake you
I’m about to break your heart and you don’t know.

And also delivering lines like:

This is me, so this is you…
So now we’re just like everyone else
You’re a riddle to me, you’re a stranger to me

with so much regret, it makes for a great listen.

Rating: ★★★★☆

    Its a good thing that Marit still has a very good review about her albums here.. I would like to say that Marit brought Heaven here on earth with her songs If a song could get me you then follwed by may favorite introduction song The chase. Im so blessed to have Marit Larsens album Like UNDER THE SURFACE, THE CHASE, IF A SONG COULD GET ME YOU AND BNOW THE NEW ALBUM LATEST “SPARK”. Lets go back to the Album The chase, when I bought this album from amazon I’m so excited to open the box and inside the album showed 3 pictures of Marit larsen. Well in conclusion, I really suggest this AMAZING album THE CHASE coz it’s like listening to a love story of UPS AND DOWNS and TURN AROUNDS. By the way IF A SONG COULD GET ME YOU song became number 1 for 8 weeks in charts.
