It is sad to say that this is the / my first time, not telling to love an album made by Röyksopp. I really fell in love with these guys, when I first had a listen to songs like 'Eple', 'What Else Is There', 'Follow My Ruin' or 'This Must Be It'. It was not just listening to the music, that was amazing to me. It was the feeling those albums gave for a very long time. It was warm, you could feel how deep they were and how much work was put into them.

This time all I can hear is sound stringed together, maybe because the release time came closer and there was no time to have a second master listen. Already the beginning sound like rubbish to me - and you can check this too - just listen to the gap between track 1 and 2. It sounds like a self-made multi-artist disc, those two tracks don't fit to each other in any way. 'Tricky Two' is really annoying, thought you are hearing the same sound that you've been listening on 'Junior' over and over again.

The whole album sounds odd and cheap, not worth the expensive price for a latest release.

But, stop! There are some great tracks too, I don't want to miss. Such as 'Coming Home', 'Forsaken Cowboy', 'Senior Living' and 'The Alcoholic' (already known from Röyksopp's live-shows). The rest is.. I don't have a clue! I think if they had released an extended play it would be enough and some of the unmentioned songs could be prepared for their "Track Of The Month" download list.

Apart from the money I wasted to buy this japanese release for nothing at all (no bonus song-booklet, stickers or a kind of artwork-book) I feel really ashamed for those two guys. I expected a lot of more, fresh sound, deepness, musical landscapes and a feeling for art. What the hell was the designer smoking when finishing this cover design? I know there should be two grandpa-heads on the cover scene, but all I can see is a black square - I was sure I kept my eyes in a healthy condition...

I am missing the good old times and hoping you are not going on this way, Junior - Senior - Elder.

Please try again Röyksopp, please try again.
