2 stars Pokerface is an artist which we haven't heard so much about here at Prog Archives. His name is Stefan Heidevik and seems to be an artist making his music mostly with help of a computer. That's also a way to do it and I'll try to don't let my prejudicies ruin it. "Silver Heart - Part 1" is his third studio record but it's a short one. Without the bonus track it counts 33 minutes and 44 seconds. Honestly that's enough for me. I didn't manage to listen to the bonus tracks.

I don't doubt Pokerface's musicality or other's possible appreciation of this music but I just find it lame. It's like some form of back ground music, ambient or what we shall call it. I'll start with the good things about this record:

On some tracks we can hear real instruments such as Morgan Ågren and Oscar Johansson's drums(2+6) and it seems to be wind-instruments, bass and accordion on track 1. Now to what I don't like. Bryan Baker plays guitar nicely on two tracks.

This feels computer made in many ways such as the drum machine and a not usual voice. I have actually hard to mention what I think's good here. Consider I am not very much into space rock, krautrock, post rock, alternative rock and indie etcera. I don't know so much about it either so I won't say this sounds like something like that, but I guess so. And...unfortunatley I don't like it.

But musical taste is personal and I am sure others will like this so listen and write your opinion about "Silver Heart - Part 1". You can listen at I can't go further than giving this two starts.

Songs: Thank you Wendy(6/10), Der Schloss adler(5/10), Muttersprache(4/10), Sticks and stones(3/10), Autumn-winter-fall(3/10), Heartland(3/10) and Muttersprache(3/10)

And I don't use to review bonus tracks. I don't like the feature BONUS TRACK. An album is an album and bonus track's bother me only if I am a fanatic praiser of a band's music such as I am to Beatles and Genesis' music.
