Beautiful, beautiful songs from a magnificent Norwegian band. This album is packed with melodic pop music, guaranteed to grow on you. Fresh, magical tunes, following the steps of Beatles, Waterboys, Talk Talk, U2, Coldplay, R.E.M and maybe A-ha.
A review: Music beautiful beyond words! Where other artists may sound good at first ‘glimpse’, these guys just seem to grow on you, with new elements to discover all the time. You clearly notice the wealth of melodies they’ve got up their sleeves, and it’s especially intriguing to hear already catchy songs taking off in new fascinating directions. Like in the exit of ‘Feel So Fine’, or the bridges of ‘What Makes Two’ or ‘To the Little Man’.
