Review by ProgShine
COLLABORATOR Errors & Omissions and Crossover Team
4 stars Jonas Lindberg is a solo project that ended up becoming a full band, especially for this new EP called The Other Side (2013).

Created in Stockholm, Sweden, the band is formed by Jonas Lindberg (bass, keyboards, electric & acoustic guitars, mandolin, programming, compositions and vocals), Jonas Sundqvist (vocals), Michael Ottosson (keyboards), Calle Stalenbring (guitars) and Jonathan Lundberg (drums). But as the name indicates, the band is really a solo effort of Jonas. He recorded pretty much all the backing tracks, wrote the material, produced and also did the artwork. And let's not forget that The Other Side (2013) was also released by his own label called ModeMusic.

The Other Side (2013) has a strong influence of AOR (like Toto) and bands like The Flower Kings and Spock's Beard. Right on the first track of the EP 'Lies' we can see that influence. And what an amazing song! It has all the great hooks that a band needs and yet many details for you to get lost in. Great early 80's mood too. On the second track 'The Other Side' we have some great riffs that really reminded me of Spock's Beard music, but at the same time the multiple vocals and keyboards 'scream' of The Flower Kings! Amazing work!

Third track brings Toto to the picture with 'Where To Begin'. For me, the weakest track on the EP. Curiously if you look to the time of the three first tracks they have 5'27, 5'26 and 5'28 respectively. This shows a way of writing that really fits AOR. The following song on The Other Side (2013) is 'Little Girl'. Here the acoustic side of Jonas comes forth in a very melancholic song. I just think that it misses something here, maybe some kind of 'explosion'. The track pretty much follows the same pace through the whole 4'38.

'Line No18' is the last song on the EP and also the longest. And I will dare to say that it's the most Prog of them all too, besides the big amount of AOR in it. I have to mention the good job that Jonas Sundqvist did with the vocals, always pushing some really nice vocal melodies all along the album. After the middle part we have some really great guitar solo, some very good keyboards and an excellent 'kitchen' with bass and drums. Brilliant!

The Other Side (2013) is a really great effort by the Swedish Jonas Lindberg. Amazingly well produced and written and also with superb musicianship. Another thing to notice is the strong AOR sound he brought back to the Prog scene. Another case of a Swedish band bringing back different sounds (the other one being Dynamo Bliss).

A great EP to check out, and now!
