3 stars This is a nice album featuring candied songs, sometimes rocking but mostly atmospheric and melancholic. DYNAMO BLISS are a new project from Sweden consisting of three skilled musicans. The influences and references are obvious, one could say retro oriented in some way. 10CC, ELO, Pink Floyd and the Beatles are defining the boundaries, however you will find some prog essence too.

Just to mention the multi-faceted opener Fear Of Clouds which appears like a little symphonic suite. A charming start with excellent polyphonic vocals but soon they switch to a rocking groove which reminds of typical US bands like Poco for example. By and by the song evolves to a tricky one with lush keyboards, synths, mellotron aso. The psychedelic Thin Air is another highlight offering a wonderful relaxed mood based on the accentuated piano and guitar work.

All in all '21st Century Junk' is a solid production, provided with sense of melody and atmosphere - however, die-hard prog enthusiasts should be careful. But if you want to know how bands like The Beatles or 10CC would probably sound today if they were not disbanded, this is a big recommendation ... just hurry up and listen here.
