3 stars Fairly poppy and cheesy but still worth while.

Dungen are an interesting band reaching popularity with the indie scenesters due to their hopelessly upbeat approach to retro music regardless of the fact that they are fairly progressive and Swedish which usually wouldn't gel well with that narrow minded bunch. This music is fairly hit and miss for me, it is quite cheesy and has a lot of poppy tunes in it and the vocals are quite annoying at times not to mention the overly retro production. Sure there is retro production with a lot of analog warmth and the whole 70's vibe to it but then there is 1965 retro production with crust and fuzz permeating every corner of the sound and distorting the drum kit.

The above qualms aside there are some great tunes on the album 'Gjort Bort Sig' has a great chorus and general feel to it and the 3 minute solo and jam in 'Du E För Fin För Mig' is quite awesome and in general most of the songs are solid. I'd recommend this to anyone into poppy proto-prog type stuff.
