~Peter Bjorn And John
After one spin of the second Peter Bjorn And John CD, Writer’s Block, I
became an enthusiastic advocate for Globalism. Here’s a Sewdish group that have
made a great new CD – with all the lyrics in English.
Even though the musical references from the Beatles; 80’s new wave; Guided
by Voices; and all those great Sarah Record bands (e.g. The Field Mice) are there,
the music is totally fresh and new.
The monster song is ‘Up Against The Wall’ – JOY DIVISION comes to mind.
‘Objects Of My Affection’, ‘The Chills’, ‘Young Folks’, and ‘Roll The Credits’ are
The emotional tone is young and exuberant, hopeful but wary. The lyrics are simple
but very sharp and right on. Take a ride on this CD to another world and enjoy.
