A long awaited return from the Swedish madmen that are the Hives, and well worth the wait:
1 - come on! - repeat the title over and over with some clapping and typical deep thrumming base line, and it's a winner!
2 - go right ahead - sounds like some 80's disco tune, really fantastic. As with many Hives songs great backing vocals.
3 - 1000 answers - fast tempo'd with a nice chorus, a bit of a grower. Players of FIFA 12 will recognise.
4 - I want more - a slower song, with a neat base line.
5 - wait a minute - you will play this over and over, if only for the backing vocals throughout, so so good!!
6 - patrolling days - a nice bouncy start, with a darker chorus than most Hives tracks, a nice change in direction.
7 - take back the toys - a really deep song, low tones and very good chorus, once again cracking base line.
8 - without the money - prob my least favourite, but not terrible. Really slow paced, with little guitar etc.
9 - these spectacles reveal the nostalgic - a signature super fast paced Hives tune, kind of generic, but catchy
10 - my time is coming - tells a bit of a story, not overly impressive, bit of a filler
11 - if I had a cent - quite a quiet verse, builds up to a fast chorus, not bad.
12 - midnight shifter - ends the album strongly, a bit of brass to assist, very catchy.
I use the word 'catchy' a lot, but that's just the Hives, they make songs that you will remember for being different. They stick to one method of creating music, and haven't really strayed from this in any of their albums. It's typical Hives, and therefore if you like any of their stuff, it's well worth spending some pennies.
