BBC Review

A-ha burst on the British scene in 1985 with their comic-book video'd "Take On Me", and they're one of the most internationally loved bands in pop, years later.

Analogue is a mature collection of songs, carefully produced and arranged. They're at their best at their darkest: the title track is the standout with its steady guitar-piano riff breaking out into uplifting choruses. Strings feature across the board: "A Fine Blue Line" blends them with electronics and "Over the Treetops" with vocal harmonies, incorporating fuzz guitar... The trick they have mastered is balancing all synthetic and acoustic elements within dramatic structures.

Bonus track "The Summers of Our Youth" begins with Magne Furuholmen almost cocking a snook to Chris Martin by taking on a rather similar singing style, before returning to Morten's familiar falsetto. A-ha must realise they're the original, and the finest. Keane and Coldplay, get your coats. --Lucy Davies

Format: Audio CD
A-ha returns to the UK with their 8th studio album “Analogue”. For A-ha purists looking for a taste of 80’s nostalgia, this album will come as a disappointment. There are no 80’s synch disco beats to be found here, what you will find instead is a masterclass in melancholic sentiment not seen since the exquisite Coldplay album “A rush of blood to the head”.
Standout tracks are “Analogue”, described by some as a Take On Me for the new millennium, albeit with a rockier edge and the European single “Celice”, a song that saw such a radical departure for the band that it led to a marked desertion from their loyal pop obsessed German fan base.
Despite the strength of the aforementioned singles, where this album really excels is in its core material. The album has a wealth of hidden layers that demands repeat listening, songs such as “Cosy Prison” and “The Fine Blue Line” are beautiful ballads that perfectly encapsulate the raw feelings of human emotions whilst remaining easily accessible. Other songs such as “White Dwarf” and “Birthright” take longer to appreciate yet are ultimately rewarding and represent some of the albums finer moments.
The album’s only failing is the dire “Halfway through the tour” a song about the toils of life on the road (although many bands feel the need to write about their experiences on the road they rarely make for great songs). Overall, against such strong material, this is only a minor indiscretion.
So is this a great album, the answer is Yes and if it was released by Keane or Coldplay then it would undoubtedly get the recognition it so richly deserves. The real question is will A-ha ever be able to shake off the boyband tag. Only time will tell, but with this album they have surely made a huge step forward in doing so.

This album was a wonderful surprise. I wasnt sure what to expect but I have to say that this is one of the best albums I have heard and is placed within Colplay's Parachutes, Keanes' Hopes & Fears and Starsailors' Silence is Easy. Morten Harket's voice is as strong ever and the music is as he says music for the soul. There are masterful sound textures, you can notice other sounds depending on whether you hear it anywhere. There are some beautiful tracks such as Birthright and A Fine Blue Line; and there are the more stronger tracks such as Analogue and Celice. This is a must have album for this year - it is truly a beautiful album.
This album is proof that it's time for the world to take a fresh look at a-ha and realise they are one of the best bands in the world who inspired the best bands in the world now.

Well, here we are, the third album since their seven-year hiatus ended. A new label, a new direction.
A-ha fans always get very excited about a new album, and start making positive comparisons to the previous ones and so on, but this time, I think it’s justified.
First of all, there’s practically no filler. I was always of the mind that there were enough decent songs on both Minor Earth Major Sky and Lifelines to make up a decent forty or forty-five minute disc after you shed some excess tunes that weren't quite up to standard, but here we have a thirteen track disc where each song pretty much justifies its place on the album.
I’m not saying there aren’t some songs here that are weaker than others, but after six or seven listens, I was never even considering hitting the skip button on any track. I even did a shuffle on one listen, and even on a random sequence, it hangs together really well.
Compared to the last two albums, which usually started quite strongly, and then got very hit-and-miss in the middle before pulling it out of the bag at the final hurdle, this is consistent and doesn’t run out of steam midway through.
First off, their tradition of strong title tracks continues. Analogue is superb, and should have been released as the first single with a decent marketing push by Polydor. It could’ve made top ten in the UK on first week sales, even if only bought by die-hards as a show of solidarity.
I’ve no issue with them bringing in Max “Britney Spears” Martin on this, as the song is still quintessentially a-ha, just with his trademark kick.

IMHO the most cohesive and mature a-ha album available, some of the darkness of memorial beach.
theres no Take on Me or Cry Wolf (unless you count Celice which heads in that direction but is heavier and darker than either).
but there is enchanteing songs with lilting music and quirky lyrics.
owners, and fans, of mags solo album should endorse the direction theyve taken with analogue.
theres more guitar, more piano and more vocal, the production doesnt leave the song behind.
theres a real emotion and often a story in every song. it emulates the scoundrel days vibes in that sense.
ill leave you to choose your favs, but im sure with good promotion in the uk, that a-ha can probably find some chart action (if thats what they wish for!!!)
the dvd is a nice filler. a kind of mini-vallhall dvd.
it has celice, cozy prison and analogue in perfect quality, with good mixing, taken from frognerparken in the summer.
there a remix video of celice, the thomas schumacher edit (a version on the celice remixes cd single, works pretty good)
theres a short interview (only a few words centred around celice and the new album) and also a short making of.. for the celice video. a neat little extra, as ricky gervais may put it.
all in all, extras aside, if a-ha are given the right promotion in the uk then chart positions look as though they are there for the taking,thats if thats whats still driving them. i suspect that it isnt, it seems that the bands dynamics have found its chakras and its the music quality that has become the focus.
a-ha ROCK!!!!
