    I like the beat and the melody, the music is great and I am able to listen to it a million times over. Miike Snow has great music overall. I would recommend this to anyone.

    Miike Snow is a Swedish indie pop band that on the album "Happy To You" collected europop, pretty good songs - which quickly caught in the ear. Group mainly and in largely part uses synthesizers, instrumental samples and muffled vocals - which in total gives us a carefree songs that are catchy. It is worth noting "Pretender" or single "The Wave".

    An outstanding album with several fantastic songs, they have a tellent for bending several genres into one song without it sounding thinly spread or just a bunch of noise their song are unique yet still viable to a wide audience.

    Strong if not perfect throughout. Both the lead and the music/production are bringing their game strong - makes it happen. Agreed the PItchfork review is off-kilter - Miike Snow's strength is the awesome moments of synthesis they make, combining organic and synthesized - P-fork seems to come out of the gate with an expectation and when MS doesn't fulfill it, it gets knocked for it.

    Well crafted, deliciously melodic. Those Pitchfork boys missed the point on this one (not cool to enjoy yourself anymore according to some). Easily more hits than misses and for me this this album is delightful.

    Was recommended to me by a friend and I really like about 3/4 of the album... had no idea about his pop connections but this album is worth checking out definitely! Fave track: Burial.

  1. There's no lack of artists making similar sounding music--MGMT, Pop Levi, White Williams, and even Animal Collective come to mind--but Miike Snow is ambitious and fun enough that they're worth checking out.
  2. The debut album by these producers-turned-trio comes after blog-bait remixes galore, including a nice enough Postal Service-ish Vampire Weekend makeover, but there's little of those fine young Columbians' infectious exuberance here.
  3. An intelligent, satisfying, extremely listenable pop record, it’s simultaneously nothing you expected, and most everything you hoped for.
