5 stars My favourite of their albums. Maybe because of the sound which resembles Red-era KC. But the obvious comparison is misleading here, because Anekdoten have developed a lot since the time of being a cover band and started to unfold their true potential.

The mood of Vemod is generally negative and reflects the literal meaning of its title. It has some of their dark and disturbing sound (especially in Wheel, which has a soloing guest trumpet) and slow and touching ballads (Thought in Absence is my all-time favourite in this category of songs).

Overally, an excellent album. Anekdoten was lucky enough to make their way to the artrock pantheon with its debut recording.

Lakesfield | 5/5 |
