Product Description

Product Description

The singles "Animal" and "Black And Blue" are included.

BBC Review

Miike Snow is the work of not one but three gentlemen who've been paying their dues on the shadowy production side of things in recent years.

Two of them – Swedish duo Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg – have a past of writing and producing under the more showbiz handle of Bloodshy & Avant, knocking out hits for artists such as Kylie, Madonna, Sugababes and Britney Spears – for the latter they wrote and produced Toxic, grabbing a Grammy in the process, as well as contributing a fair chunk to her magnificent Blackout album.

The group’s third member is US songwriter Andrew Wyatt, who assisted Mark Ronson on Daniel Merriweather's Love & War album, and spent time in numerous bands even he probably has problems remembering. The trio were freed up after working on an aborted project for someone else, so decided to pool their unique talents for the power of good: their own debut album.

And, my word, Miike Snow (the album) is really rather special. It’s the sort of record that you vaguely recognise from the off, due to the trio's deft way with a melody. Lead single Animal takes approximately one play for its catchiness to cluster bomb your memory bank, while the marvellously titled A Horse is not a Home and the delicate Burial have a can't-quite-put-your-finger-on-it piano refrain charm that seems to run through the finest Swedish pop. The kinky Plastic Jungle slinks with sleazily glam drums and sordid menace, and personal favourite In Search Of has a superbly addictive and redemptive arms-aloft rave quality about it.

Miike Snow have set out their stall perfectly with a classy album that will sit as easily in the home as it would down the discothèque. Expect to hear a large percentage of this soundtracking various aspects of your life in the near future, as within its field it’s damn near perfect. --Ian Wade

Miike Snow's debut confronts me with curiosity. Compiled of two pop-producers and experimental singer/songwriter Andrew Wyatt, I'm not exactly sure what to expect. Based upon their single `Animal', however, I was optimistic and the Swedish three-piece didn't let me down. Although producing an unmistakeably Scandinavian sound, their American front man, Wyatt, gives each song charisma with his tender and forgivably Auto-Tuned vocals. Meanwhile his two colleagues (known better as Bloodshy & Avant, and for co-producing Britney Spears' `Toxic') create gentle yet catchy synth melodies that make me press the repeat button subconsciously. Both `Animal' and `Burial' are destined pop-synth hits, the latter capable of easily slotting into Animal Collective's latest offering. `Silvia' is a six-minute sensation, and for me, the album's standout track whilst `A Horse Is Not A Home' highlights the lyrical wit Wyatt brings to the table, "Oh God I think I'm dying / And our drinks were just poured" being my favourite line. The album carries both pop sensibility and lyrical charm, and whilst some tracks are definite `growers', others are `showers' that complete a successful debut that will satisfy most listeners' expectations. 4/5.

What happens if you mix the quirky intelligence and originality of Band of Horses and Animal Collective with the undeniable pop sensibilities of bands like Passion Pit, Empire of the Sun and Midnight Juggernauts? You get Miike Snow!!! This Swedish three piece first met in 2000 and started recording together in 2007. Two years later the result is the bands self titled debut album.

The album starts with recent single `Animal' which is a simply joyous bit of pop music. It opens with a simple rhythm comprised of bass and keyboards beautifully copying each other in harmony. This beat persists through both verse and chorus creating a continuity and dance atmosphere to the whole composition. The chorus itself is a catchy pop refrain. This is an opening that spells out exactly how Miike Snow intends to make music. `Burial' follows in similar vein with opening keyboard that chimes so happily it's almost unbelievable. It sounds like the crisp cold of fresh snow. The track then swirls into a wonderfully soft and melodic number with brilliant lyrics like "Don't forget to cry at your own burial."

So that's the opening salvo dealt with but that's by no means the highlights. `Silvia' echoes with strong piano lines and a persistent but unobtrusive beat. As the track grows it turns into something halfway between a bit of electro chill-out and pure pop stormer. `Song for No One' is a nothing more than a slice of pure pop, and `Black & Blue', also a recent single, is the standard of music that artists like Sam Sparro should have released. It has a crisp high vocal and synthy fizz and pop quality to the chorus that is exciting and fresh here.

Miike snow has come up with a collection of strong songs that gradually grow on you. If you're like me and like your music to be indie and a tad on the down side, then you'll like this because A:it gives you that down fix that you need in tracks such as Sans Soleil and Silvia and B: there are brighter, Beach Boyesque type moments throughout the rest of the album, because you know a change is as good as a rest and this is a fantastic change. I know you'll already have Delphic,MGMT & EOTS on your MP3 so check out Miike Snow and while you are at it, Groove Armada's Black Light for a similar musical experience.

By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 31 Oct. 2009
Format: Audio CD
Nothing wrong with this at all.
Scandinavia's musical renaissance continues to blossom unabated.
Not unlike Scotland good sounds have been pouring out of
just about every possible creative orifice imaginable this year.

This phenomenon can surely not be understood by the
former's ingestion of vast amounts of fish oil alone
(this notion would be clearly contradicted by our Celtic neighbours'
preponderently carnivorous disposition - not to mention those
deep fried Mars Bars!)

The configuration of the constellations above The Northern Lands,
however, are clearly auspicious at this time.

Miike Snow are a perfectly splendid little ensemble.
The efforts of singer/songwriter Andrew Wyatt when combined
with the production skills of Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg
(a candidate for The Wolf's 'Name Of The Year' Award!) are
certainly more than worthy of our attention

That they have been compared to A-Ha by at least one august chronicle is
a thoroughly unwarrantable notion which we would do well to disregard!
(Unlike their Norwegian cousins Miike Snow are making
some entirely credible and enjoyable music).
Animal Collective analogies also quickly wear thin.

The band demonstrates a light and accessible pop-sensibility
running confidently through this effortlessly coherent debut.

'Animal' is a strong opening number. The slippery melody winding
in and around the chorus is as delightful as it is memorable.

'Silvia' is a slower-paced composition which builds gradually through
the six-and-a-bit minute course of its life on earth towards an
emotionally uplifting conclusion.
