    The combination of strong songs, Lissvik's inspired production, and the chances they take (and nail every time) make this the best Mary Onettes record yet, and the first to sound like they have their own voice.

    Glossy production adds a haze of late summer mist to some cleverly realised songwriting and Hit The Waves is an album that stands on its own terms musically, without its needing to explain itself or its influences.

    Hit the Waves is so heartfelt as a pastiche of '80s alternative music that it almost muscles its way into being brilliant.

    The album is an undoubtedly fine affair. One just sometimes wishes Ekström might cheer up a bit

Pretty boring album overall and complete change of style from the previous album. Full Review »
