4.0 out of 5 stars No one writes songs about bingo like Mr Lekman, 3 Mar. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Night Falls Over Kortedala (Audio CD)
I've been listening to this album for a couple of months (usually while my wife is out of the room - in the interest of balance I have to add that she finds the album depressing and monotonous). There are some really wonderful, humourous and warm songs that manage to avoid sounding too twee or quirky. Like 'You're so silent...' the music complements the lyrics well. On the downside, the child singing during 'It was a strange time in my life' is very irritating, while 'Your arms around me' owes a heavy debt to R.E.M's 'Near wild heaven'. However, songs like 'the opposite of hallelujah' and 'Friday night at the drive in bingo' are original and uplifting, and seem to only get better each time I listen to them.
