Klas Qvist is Meet Citizen K and does lead vocals & virtually all the backing (from mandolins, mellotron, grand piano to e-bow & piano accordion) and creates a refreshing sort of soundscape which washes over you. Really hard to pin down where these sounds stem from (seemingly mainly the 60s) but at the same time MCK manages to make it seem modern. There are influences of Association, Turtles, America & CS&N but also in the mix are Byrds, Beatles, Beach Boys, The Divine Comedy, Jackson Browne, Mamas & Papas, Gerry Rafferty, Honeybus & Elite. There is a slight sameness & a lack of energy (probably to do with all the over dubbing) but nevertheless this is beautiful stuff with clear straightforward lyrics delivered via a gentle vocal with some interesting touches to the backing instrumentation. There is not a dud track here & just when you think you need to head South there's always something to keep the spark. Best is 'She Says' but then dipping into the final 3 tracks for example 'A Soft Farewell' (poignant & beautiful & a highlight) 'Flight Song' (melodic & punchy) and 'Lullaby' then each still maintains the interest. Even if not completely sensational then certainly pleasant & highly listenable.
