Unlike her first three albums, which were all released in quick succession, Swedish curio Miss Li (aka Linda Carlsson) has taken her time with Dancing The Whole Way Home. Or at least relatively so; it still comes less than 18 months after Songs Of A Rag Doll. It stands out, too, as being her longest album to date – the first to break the 35-minute mark, but only just. Carlsson never outstays her welcome. With reasonable domestic success extending to US network television airplay (‘Weeds’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’), each new album from Carlsson threatens to be the one that breaks her internationally. But perhaps the cult of Miss Li is destined to stay small and humble.
