After reading the very positive reviews and the fact it was recorded at an abandoned Russian mining village near the North Pole, i tried not to get too carried away before my first listen. I didn't need to worry.Q and Mojo mention hints of Talk Talk's Spirit of Eden which i hear, but i also hear The National. More importanly, this album has an identity all of it's own. If you want your music to carry you away to somewhere beautiful. Look no further. It's Here. You will not be dissapointed.

The other reviews on here might lead you to suppose that this is more ambient than it actually is - the outstandingly good vocals won't permit you to leave this in the background for too long. As regards the music, I loved the use of brass which echoed David Sylvian's early solo albums and as a whole the album reminded me of Gramophone and Portishead and more recently of Wild Beasts. Take it from me that if you like any of the above you will like this album.

As a fan of Sigur Ros and the lesser known Jeniferever, Efterklang's latest release is, in my opinion, on a par with anything released by the aformentioned groups. The vocals are haunting, guiding the listener through the frosty landscape sculpted from the understated and magnificently constructed work of this group of talented Scandinavians. It all comes together beautifully to create an experience both chilling and heartwarming at the same time. Well worth taking a punt on if you're not familiar with them, and if you are, you won't be disappointed.

This is a fantastic album, full of atmosphere, you get taken on a musical journey from which there is no reason to escape untill the last track has finished. A great find and a great buy.

This has been stuck in my CD player for days now - such a sublime CD - fresh, crisp with an original identity. There are hints of Talk Talk as someone else has mentioned, but really this is new and original. As I said, sublime.

I saw this band live in concert recently and they were incredible. Their work is unusual and they remain true to their art form. The CD is a great reminder of the concert.

Irretraceable in their Danish modern folkloristic experiments, Efterklang can't really compete with the Irrepressibles, but follow their own path....interesting and pure.

Not like their other albums but still good. More pop than electronic. Hope they go back to their original music soon.

When I received the cd it was broken. It fell apart so not happy as it was described as very good.
