For 80's synth pop aficionados this is a must have. Norwegian teenage angst translated into synth pop. Some tracks can be childish and simplistic but that is not uncommon in this genre. The compilation as a whole lives up to expectations pretty well. If you like Der Plan, Guyer's Connection, the Flexipop compilations or labels like Annalogue Records, Kernkrach, Minimal Wave etc then you'll dig this release.

“If you can dream it, you can do it!” That must have been what dear Øystein must have had in mind when starting his label Hommage Records and coming up with the rather weird idea of releasing a double CD being “a comprehensive guide exploring the electronic post punk of Norway in the 1980s”. Well, Norway is indeed not known for ever having revolutionized pop music whatsoever, but a small number of connoisseurs and collectors of rather unusual musical paths have ever been aware of the fact that there was quite a number of fine Norwegian artists that have created some honest and wonderful music, unfortunately almost always in vanishingly little editions. Fortunately the synthesiser was a present instrument here and there. So this compilation delivers an almost complete overview of the Norwegian underground electropop music, with many obscure but brilliant artists: Kito, Cirkus Modern, Clockwork Orange, Det Gylne Triangel, Beranek, Johnny Yen, The Cut, E-Man, Bern Balders, Adrian Cox, Ole I'Dole, Krim U, Ym:Stammen: Menneskene På Broene, Holy Toy, Boxbury Beat, Famlende Forsøk, ExLex, Grå, Bel Canto, Svart Klovn, Bearburger, Ulf Knudsen, Thorbjørn Grønning, Vidar & Gærne, Jørgen Knudsen, Brød & Sirkus, Downers, Head Set Junta, Den Tredje Generasjon, Fra Lippo Lippi, Headcleaners, Blue Mathue, Jeg Falt, White Lord Jesus, Mørkelagt Bevegelse, Horsemen, El, 3rd Man, Guttene Fra Gokkohjørnet, Im Nebel, PLX 15. Example: listen to E-Man, oh boy this is eternal synthesiser bliss!!! So: Norway, 12 points! MUST-HAVE!!!
