Has anyone heard it yet?
but now I have a plan to my evening
like it lots
not as much as his first two though
It's about 8 / 10 (to give it a grade). Maybe 9 if I listen to it a bit more ...
1. And I Remember Every Kiss - fantastic
2. Sipping On The Sweet Nectar - nice The Avalanches sounding song
3. The Opposite Of Hallelujah - amazing, but we knew that
4. A Postcard To Nina - quiet / loud song, sometimes a bit annoying
5. Into Eternity - pretty
6. I'm Leaving You Because I Don't Love You - classic Jens Lekman
7. If I Could Cry (It Would Feel Like This) - Nice
8. Your Arms Around Me - Jens Lekman strings on this one! A future live favourite. (maybe it's already one?)
9. Shirin - Ok
10. It Was A Strange Time In My Life - a bit annoying kid di-di-di:ing on this one
11. Kanske Är Jag Kär I Dig - ba ba ooo ooo! ba ba! Super.
12. Friday Night At The Drive-In Bingo - of course amazing
First I was a bit disappointed, thought there were too much about having as many instruments and arrangements in there, but then I started listening to the lyrics and I remembered it's because of the lyrics I mostly love Jens Lekman and on this record he's on great form!
1. And I Remember Every Kiss - LOVE IT. Made little changes to the version floating around alone, and they make it slightly better.
2. Sipping On The Sweet Nectar - nice The Avalanches sounding song - yep
3. The Opposite Of Hallelujah - amazing, yep
4. A Postcard To Nina - The live version sounded very nice, some of the lyrics have been cut so the story isn't as fun/heartwarming. Still really good though.
5. Into Eternity - Yep, very nice.
6. I'm Leaving You Because I Don't Love You - still needs to grow on me...
7. If I Could Cry (It Would Feel Like This) - Indeed quite nice
8. Your Arms Around Me - SO GOOD. The versions I've heard were stripped down and only the lyrics were special, now it's one of his best ever bits. I love the breakdown in the middle the most.
9. Shirin - filler-sounding, little boring
10. It Was A Strange Time In My Life - meh, filler-ish
11. Kanske Är Jag Kär I Dig - wasn't a big fan at first, but has grown to be possibly my favourite song on the album, the finale is SO GOOD.
12. Friday Night At The Drive-In Bingo - lead single, loved it for ages, the speed up/slow down bit makes me smile every time.
