Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A blend of beautiful Ambient pop (or dream pop) informed by many decades but with a voice of its own. The lyrics are intelligent and free from cliche, the vocals pleasant with a capital P. The arrangements simple but unpredictable. The melodies heartbreaking. First five or six tracks are instant indie minor classics (top marks)and not a duff track out of the twelve. Of course, without pluggers and major hype, Club 8 (with a terrible name) are well hidden from the masses. But i don't care about that!! i just love it. If you like Dubstar (and i do) you'll love this - although it's not very close to anything in particular. In fact the songs are stronger than many much more successful artists in this dreamy, ambient, folky area. So glad I found this. The album has legs and i'll be listening to this for a long time - saving it for mellow sunny days. Will check out their other albums, but can't hope or imagine they could be this good.

Club 8 are a Swedish band formed in 1995 by Karolina Komstedt and Johan Angergard. The Boy Who Couldn't Stop Dreaming is their sixth album and harks back to the rather fragile , lightweight pop that used to be the preserve of labels like "Sarah" records.
Now whether this is a good thing depends entirely on how you view music that some would class as fey , precious, dainty ...choose your own intended insult. I don't necessarily think these are bad things for a band to be but one thing is certain ...If you are of that ilk you better make sure the songs are strong because if they aren't nothing will expose them quicker than a lack of padding and instrumental baggage.
The Boy Who Couldn't Stop Dreaming happily has some excellent songs on it ."Leave The North" is by far the strongest song . A piano with slight echo heralds in Kromstedt,s pristine vocal tone's .Then the strings add weight and in more ways than one. They sound like they have meandered in from a far more thematically heavy album- say Lou Reeds "Berlin" and so sound incongruous , certainly compared to the delicate but pretty acoustic tendency of a song like album opener "Jesus Walk With Me". "Everything Goes" sounds like Julee Cruise if she embraced minimal electronica and "Heaven" is a breezy attempt to add welcome tempo to proceedings with it's Cure like bass and funky percussion. So do the glossy chords of "When I Come Around" and there are more mournful strings on "Sometimes" and a forlorn cello on "Where Birds Don't Fly" though the song isn't itself isn't that great.
For all that some of the album is inconsequential and forgettable.

The Feb 08 review for this album is a good one. I think that one can play virtually anything by Club 8 and you might like it. That is to say, it might not move you, and it probably won't offend you, but some of it is very moving! Their stuff works its way inside you and becomes the Club 8 entity, that thing into which you buy. I love them, they are all lovely, mellow, sweet, heartfelt, charming and special.
