    Sweet, shimmering, Swedish alt-pop. [April 2012, p.91]

    No doubt Arnstrom can craft an uplifting tune but his simpering tone ultimately suggests The Whitest Boy Alive being kicked in the face with sand. [Apr 2012, p.84]

    It's perhaps too subtle and intricate for a marketplace accustomed to being bashed about the bonce by rave-fuelled RnB – but if your palate fancies some tuneful sweetness, Youth will melt in your mouth.

    There's a smorgasbord of top tunes here.

    Its title track, 'The Capitol' and 'Fenix' are all pleasant enough but lack any real dynamic and verge on the point of becoming fillers. Those are only minor niggles for an accomplished album though.

    Glistening, handcrafted pop. [April 2012, p.106]

    An accomplished, repeatable debut.
