Thoughts

This is such a good week for music for me - Bastille rocking the dreamlike modern life, Roxette just blasting their way through the 1990s in great pop&rock form. Starting an album with Joyride is a risk because it’s such a good song but the rest of the album absolutely lives up to it. I don’t know that the songs were particularly identifiable by themselves, but as a whole it was a great ride. The only problem I had was the one song that sounds just like It Must Have Been Love, but hey, you can’t really rip off yourself!

Rating: 4 / 5
