The six singers in Pust let us sink into a peaceful and harmonious world of idyllic reflection but with the occasional faint undercurrent of playful unrest that tingles under the luscious arrangements and in some of the lyrics. Absolutely all the sounds you hear on this album have been produced by the human voice. Everything has been recorded directly – no overdubs. Everything is pure and deliciously relaxed but in no way antiseptic. The singers’ personalities shine through the music, particularly in their solos.
Most of the arrangements have been made by the members of the group. They have also written several of the new songs which supplement the well-loved Christmas repertoire, adding both solemnity and glimpses of humour.
Among the well-known Christmas standbys on Julero, one can hear "Silent Night", "A Child Is Born in Bethlehem", "Beautiful Saviour", "Northern Norwegian Christmas Psalm" by Trygve Hoff, and "Romjulsdrøm" ("Christmas Time Dream") by Alf Prøysen. Some of the new songs on the record, such as "I et lite hus" (In a Small house) and "Mens byen gleder seg" ("While the Town Delights"), focus on the contrast between the traditional idyll of Christmas and modern urban life.
”Meditative, atmospheric and forever soothing."
”A Christmas album for eternity.”
"For me, Julero is Pust's finest work, and among the best a cappella out there. This is must-own material, no doubt."
"I am in love with this album."
"Julero starts gently and closes gently, and the music throughout is so ethereal, so curiously unique and gorgeous, that engaged silence results. What a testament to the talent and risk-taking of Norway's Pust."
