iTunes Review

After the glorious atmospheric pop of Falling Out and Writer’s Block, Swedes Peter Bjorn and John confounded fans with a couple of releases that were edgy and experimental (Seaside Rock) and borne of darker, colder pop tones (Living Thing). But those were only the de rigeur detours budding artists sometimes feel compelled to take. Gimme Some is one of those records that speaks simply and truthfully to the core of an artist’s sound, and pleads a good case for staying the original course. From the gleeful proclamations — all spirited vocals, hooky chorus and buzzing guitars — of “Tomorrow Has to Wait,” it’s clear the ride ahead will be a rollercoaster pop thrill. There are fantastic nods to vintage sounds: the bubbly “Dig a Little Deeper” recalls Squeeze, and the breathy swagger of “Second Chance” feels like the Shins meets XTC. They infuse old genres like new wave (“Lies,” “Breaker Breaker”) and punk (“Black Book”) with a unique energy, and the gleaming tidal wave of closing track “I Know You Don’t Love Me” is a brilliant end.

Customer Reviews


Peter Bjorn and John, what happened? You guys did so exceedingly well on Living Thing and Writer's Block.
When I heard Second Chance and Breaker Breaker, I got really excited about this album. I got to listen to the album last week and all I can say is that all the songs sound the same. They're all the same, high powered indie-pop that everyone seems to love these days. I really miss the synthesizer and all the cool beats from the previous albums. Each of those songs were unique and it seems like PB&J are just hammering out what every other song sounds like instead of producing some new cool and unique songs. I gave this album three stars because for one thing, I love this band; however, I can't help but feel slightly disappointed in this newish sound. This album might take getting used to, especially if you love PB&J's old sound.

Great album!

This album Has some fantastic Alt-Pop gems like "Down Like Me", "Second Chance" and "Breaker Breaker"! Definitely one to check out!

Getting better and better

This is my favorite album thus far. I love the happy-go-lucky rockabilly sound of this album. I really enjoyed Living Thing and I thought Writers Block was pretty decent too. But I think PB&J topped them both with this one.

Fav. Songs: "Dig a Little Deeper" "Breaker Breaker" "Eyes" "Tomorrow Has to Wait"


Formed: 1999 in Stockholm, Sweden

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Peter Bjorn and John formed in 1999 in Stockholm, Sweden, comprising members Peter Morén on vocals, guitar, and harmonica; Björn Yttling on vocals, bass, and keyboards; and John Eriksson on drums, percussion, and vocals. Although influenced by the sounds of classic '60s baroque pop, power pop, and new wave, the band shunned the "revivalist" tag and, instead, created some of the most exciting and original indie rock of the mid-2000s. Peter Bjorn and John began playing gigs soon after forming and...
