Is this even better?,
This review is from: Versus (Audio CD)
So far "Quite is the new loud" is the best CD of 2001. The Norwegian duo that defined the neo-acoustics with their Nick Drake meets Simon and Garfunkel diamond sharp songs managed to sound new and surprising although traveling in a well-established path. You might say this made their achievement even greater.
And now they have taken half of that CD and some other songs and managed to rearrange them and remix them so they would qualify as nu-cool-lounge. The good news: "Versus" is so good and enjoyable it puts you in a big dilemma. Where do Kings of Convenience sound better? Here or there? Acoustic and sad or electronically happy? I say you should own both. These guys really write masterpiece songs.
