Having heard Around The Bend, I decided to check out more of The Asteroids Galaxy Tour with the glum expectation that they would be another boring old one-hit wonder band.
Boy was I wrong.
Having bought this album, my MP3 player has barely had a chance to play anything else. After a few listens, it is almost impossible not to be singing along to Lady Jesus, The Golden Age, Push the Envelope, etc. - Mette's quirky singing style (although it may not be everybody's cup of tea) adds a certain charm to proceedings. With catchy melodies and a style that at some times feels like a laid-back summer afternoon, and at other times teems with energy, this album puts a smile on my face every time. Love it.
