Lover, Where Do You Live?
Lover, Where do you live? In the sky, in the clouds, in the ocean I'll learn the lesson... Bye bye ideas. Burrying out in the middle of it now... See the rest of the song lyrics

    When it’s not inclined to cast off into distension, Silent Treatment is robust, purposeful and precariously, hauntingly sublime.

    There's an occasional human misstep reminding us that these aren't robots churning pristine pop, and that they can concoct foibles, but there's no reason we can't just sweep those issues under the rug. It's easy to overlook any small faults, as the rest of the record is so damn glorious.

    Occasionally, the lyrics seems to lose a bit in the translation... Yet, these lyrical curiosities don't detract, and sometimes even add allure to the mysterious beauty of the songs on Silent Treatment. [Feb/Mar 2014, p.72]

    The EP that preceded this album set the marker high for the Norwegian quintet, but they more than deliver here with a brave and diverse collection of songs.

    Your enjoyment is decidedly dependent on how you appreciate her sweeping, multi-octave singing and tunes that reflect the give and take of relationships in ways that make soap operas seem subtle.

    Silent Treatment is an album that is certainly bursting with ambition, but that ambition seems at this point in time to be to the detriment of the songs.
