4 stars Challenging the hippie stereotypes, this album is definately a psychedelic piece of work, but it is much darker than what one might expect - especially if, which is the case of most Danes of my own generation - one's only point of reference is Steppeulvene's lighthearted album Hip. While dark and sombre, Hej Du is less dark than their debut, and a relatively easier listen (at least in some respects). There seems to be a little bit more (but only a little bit!) emphasis on melody vocals-wise which does not always work too well, and lyrically it's more Romantic (like in the 19th century movement within literature and art) than the predecessor, but this is primarily because of the epic track Perlesøen which with its 21+ minutes takes up a large portion of the album. In all, a dark, challenging, yet more inviting, album than the debut.
