    A brilliant album - not a return to form because the last three albums have all been stunning. For those unitiated into the warm world of human emotion that is recent a-ha, check out the songs "Lifelines" "Analogue", "Fine Blue Line", "Barely Hanging On", "Birthright" and on this wonderful album, the let's get out of this place forever right now romanticism of "Foot of the Mountain", "What There is" and "Riding The Crest". Synthpop, along with La Roux (not a comparison, a compliment), along with the Friendly Fires, has never been so good in the 00's. Full Review »

    Not their best, but they have put out consistently good albums since the eighties and occasionally very good ones, (Minor Earth, Major Sky). You know what you're in for as soon as you know who the band is, so put preconceptions aside and go along for the ride. They make pop records as good as anyone today. Full Review »
