5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff, 20 Feb. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Melody A.M. (Audio CD)
Scandenavia has been traditionally good for three things - safe cars, quality vodka and classy porn. Not music. Except the Wannadies and the Cardigans (kind of destroyed my own point there...) Anyway, then, within the space of a year, two stunning bands come thundering out of the frozen hinterland like proverbial Viking ships on a mission of plunder. There's the wonderful Kings of Convieniance and now - Röyksopp.
Melody A.M. sounds like 7am on New Years Day. That may well be when I heard it first and therefore is a bit of a personal allagory to be using but I think it gives the correct impression. Melody A.M. sounds, well... it's not quite ambient, its not quite house. Think Air with a big furry jacket. Think Burt Bacharach on a big happy come down with a steaming mug of hot chocolate.
You may well recognise the superb second track 'Eple' from an ad on the telly at the moment (the name escapes me, anti-perspirant may welll be involved I'm nearly sure...). 'Poor Leno' is another standout, all house beats and soaring vocodery vocals.
Röyksopp are one to watch. Melody A.M. is one to get. Essential stuff.
