referencing Picture You (2×LP, Album) PTKF2111-1Mesmerizing album!
For years The Amazing have shown a great potential, but it wasn't until "Picture You" they truly perfected their sound. Combining Gunrup's wonderful sense of melody and drama with an extremely competent band - where Holmegård's characteristic drum fills and Reine Fiske's silk-smooth guitar brilliance are shining through in a most clever way - and we simply have a contemporary pop masterpiece. It's a long album, more than an hour long, where a few songs are clocking in on 7-8 minutes - still it doesn't sound "jammy" or pretentious. It's just music that needs time to breath and to develop organically. And with such vast library of emotive harmonies it never gets boring or repetitive. It's rather the opposite - the music has grown on me for every listening session.
For some reason I can't stop thinking of this album sounding as if The War On Drugs spent a year in Stockholm, surviving all the highs and lows of the four seasons up here in the North. The majestic shimmer, the melancholy and the feeling of travelling through all the memories of life really is something that connects the two bands, but there is something so unmistakably Swedish with The Amazing. It's the sound of my home in 2018. It's the sound of Stockholm.
