Super interesting album on many different levels. The song writing is insane, both from Cat Temper and his guests - where the unmistakable CT riffs and bass lines are fused to great effect with the identity of each vocalist (who each brings a tremendous performance!). The result is a truly timeless piece of meowsic.
In the coherence and accuracy of the melodies and the vibe in this album, ACY raises the bar for himself to a new high. It hits you like a tropical breeze upon exiting the aircraft to your vacation destination -- and captivates like the glittering of candles reflecting in a grand piano in a restaurant.
Whoever played with Swayze's heart like this should take a good look in the mirror! That said... these songs about love are so catchy, funny, relatable and musically well-written that I'm left with a lasting feeling of warmth, making me think that Swayze's future wife will be a very happy woman :)
This ultimate summer hit has blissful sounding instruments and an equally blissful set of melodies playing against each other. It makes you happy, complete, and honestly just makes you feel like you're in love!
In a mind-bending merge of french house and synthwave, this album is a prime example of bending the rules without breaking them. It is filled to the brink with superb melodies which often have a retro-Scandinavian identity, consolidating the Falck trademark.
One of the best albums of the decade, this retrowave masterpiece breathes 80s sounds, new age, and even some bossanova. Very well written songs, all packed in excellent production with a coherent, unique sound throughout.
The story behind the album is told with empowering melodies, and is a strong statement intimately related to Dimi's own life journey.
Not merely a time capsule from the 80s, Not Holding Back is also a symbol of the retro-scene aspirations in 2019 - the target vibe of rock, that Dimi himself has helped to craft through his previous works. Listen acutely when he hits the riffs - if you miss this train of shred, you will be left in the boring dust of dated filter envelopes.
In its whole, this EP takes me into the lounge of a racing video game, where you browse super cars and finally buy that Aston Martin. A refined wink to the BRR/PCM sample sound of the 90s, and an homage to the composers of that era.
