on the basis of their combined experience, imagination and skill, the group has managed to craft a masterpiece with 'don't want to go to sleep'. the songs retain the bouncy and joyful spirit of 'how to make friends', yet veer off into territories that the band have hitherto left unexplored. there are slow songs and introspective ones; calm, drifting meditations mixed with calls to arms and potential dancefloor workouts. and lots of fun, of course. tracks like the beautiful 'noise' and 'we fall' depict serene dreamscapes that still burst with power and rhythm. the understated 'winter', with its anxious bite and underlying warmth, captures the essence of the overpowering icelandic winter in its suffocating embrace. 'vertigo' entices and enthrals, 'american' bops, gallops and is impossible not to sing along to. it is rare that an album will make you want to dance while possessing the ability to lull you to sleep (you'l have dreams of dancing). 'don't want to sleep' is such an album, a friend in early morning and late at night (and on your coffee break).
