4 stars I've got to admit to being a massive fan of this band, having discovered their latest album 'Lovers End', which I absolutely adore. The combination of killer melodies and beautiful harmonies really do rock my world!

'Lovers End' has been criticised for being more pop and less prog. I don't necessarily agree with that sentiment. I feel that the group as a whole is becoming more assured, more polished as they move forward and the quality of their musicianship and songwriting is absolutely superb. The music is still intricate and engaging. There are very obvious influences from groups as diverse as the Beach Boys, The Beatles, Yes and dare I mention the similarity to the vocal harmonies of Munchener Freiheit!

'Blomljud' is a very experimental album for the band. You can tell that they are beginning to flex their creative muscle in many of the compositions and it doesn't have the same polish or consistency of 'Lovers End'.

However, it is a great album with many, many highlights and shows massive potential for the future. I love the direction that this band is moving in at the moment. This is one of the very few groups left in the world for me whose material I would buy immediately without even thinking about it. I just know it is going to be fantastic. This is an excellent album, worthy of a solid four stars from one of my favourite bands around at the moment. I believe they have the potential to be a band with mass appeal, particularly if they can break the American market. As I said previously, I am a huge fan of this group. Great stuff!

Richens | 4/5 |
