4 stars Norwegian composer and musician Bjorn RIIS isn't a name that will be a household one for too many, but when adding the factoids that he's one of the original members of the Norwegian band Airbag and the man behind the website a few will presumably take notice. One could also add that some years ago he was a member of the Norwegian tribute band The Pink Floyd Experience. "Lullabies in a Car Crash" is his first solo album, released by the Norwegian label Karisma Records in November 2014.

Bjorn Riis' solo debut comes across as an accomplished piece of music, a well developed production that may not yield the biggest musical surprises of the decade, but that instead delivers plenty of ear-candy for the attentive listener. as well as material fairly close to what you'd expect from a musician with his background. Fans of Pink Floyd, David Gilmour and Riis' main band Airbag should all take note of this album, and especially those amongst them with a taste for music with lots of room given to details of a subtle and careful nature.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
