  1. Sleep Mountain, the second long-player from The Kissaway Trail, finds the Danish quintet embracing the more sweeping aspects of rock 'n' roll emotional grandeur. And, in large part, they succeed marvellously.
  2. But rather than ending up a bombastic mess, ‘Sleep Mountain’ knows that the devil is in the detail.
  3. Under The Radar

    Yeah there's nothing new being mined here, but the band's stunning command of pop music's rich and vast vocabulary, combined with their palpable chemistry, renders this record utterly irrisisitable. [Winter 2010, p.63]
  4. Sleep Mountain has the emotional weight of a Boxer or a Turn on the Bright Lights, but it doesn’t quite have the tunes. That said, there’s still plenty to fall in love with here.
