4 stars This would be my second favourite album from Sweden's own THE AMAZING featuring guitarist Reine Fiske. I do connect more with 2016's "Ambulance" for that Dream Pop vibe. This one is folky and dreamy too with those warm vocals and Fiske's wondrous guitar leads.

That self titled opener is certainly one of my favourites off this album. Just a beautiful song both instrumentally and vocally. Lots of depth and some organ after 4 minutes when the vocals step aside briefly. A long instrumental break ends it. More organ on the next tune "Flashlight" and the chorus is moving. Thankyou! We even get some guest flute and sax on this one. Fragile vocals on "The Fog" which is folky, "Gone" is excellent especially the guitar and vocals. "Dogs" is a top three again because of the vocals and guitar. This is one I can just drift away to. The closer "When The Colours Change" is one I can relate to here in Canada. Another dreamy tune especially the chorus.

Man I have such a thing for Swedish melancholy, nobody does melancholy like the Swedes.
