    It's so soft, so beautiful... just perfect, the Thurstoon Moore's sample is so awesome too.

I find myself drifting away into a world full of nostalgic melodies and catchy hooks. The Instrumentation is completely flawless, everything is in it's proper place. The way that the 10 songs on this album are arranged weather it's the drums, guitars, vocals, keyboards, or even speaking samples never fails to blow me away. I feel like this is an essential album for anyone that enjoys easy-going music of any kind. Just a wonderful perfect project that has made a big impact on the music I listen to. Expand

  1. Further spins reveal the charms of the non-single tracks, and the whole thing ends up being one of the best examples of all the things that help make Swedish pop so magical. For once, all the pre-release hype and anticipation has been justified; the Radio Dept. have delivered the best work of their career.
  2. The Radio Dept. have cleverly managed to conjure up music with a thoroughly minimal feel, despite this hive of activity instrumentation-wise.
  3. It’s a surprise that the band managed to get through those weird four years and make such a consistent album--from front to back it’s exceptionally well sequenced.
