Album Review

Anders Trentemøller got started making albums fairly late in his career, following several years of singles released during the early '90s. His second full-length comes almost five years after his first one (The Last Resort, 2006) and after a couple of compilations and DJ mix projects. Into the Great Wide Yonder gives the impression of someone who is still searching for his own personal sound, and is willing to explore just about any musical avenue to find it. The results are predictably unpredictable, and mostly pretty enjoyable: "The Mash and the Fury" is spacious and dark, with guitars that alternately twang and splatter against a mottled gray musical background; "…Even Though You're with Another Girl" is spooky but quite lovely, with marimba, queasy sonic effects, and guest vocals by Josephine Philip; "Silver Surfer, Ghost Rider Go!!!" is a weird sort of science fiction surf instrumental; and "Häxam" features, believe it or not, a theremin. Those are some of the highlights on the program. Tracks that maintain the listener's interest less consistently include "Past the Beginning of the End," with its messy and eerie sound that ends up coming across as simply poorly constructed, and the OK-but-not-worth-six-minutes-of-one's-life "Sycamore Feeling." There's a pervasive mood of 1950s-style science fiction here: lots of ah-ah-ah vocals, kettle drums, twangy guitars, and that charming theremin. Nothing on the album is less than pleasant, but only about half of it will really make most listeners sit up and take notice; however, as electronica projects go, that's not a bad batting average.

Customer Reviews

Fedt!

Fedt endelig at høre noget nyt fra Trentemøller, fed skive!
Det kunne bare være lækkert hvis vi også kunne få en opsamlingsplade med alle de gode remix han har lavet. F.eks. numre som Bruce´s "State Trooper" og Yoshimoto´s "Do What U Do", så man ikke skal luske sig til dem på en masse underlige hjemmesider.

Intet mindre end fantastisk!

Jeg var meget spændt på, om Trentemøller kunne leve op til "The Last Resort" og var forberedt på et stilskifte. Jeg frygtede at den nye stil
ikke ville fange mig, som den elektroniske lyd gjorde, men der blev jeg svært overrasket. Efter et par gennemlytninger må jeg konkludere, at dette er intet mindre end et mesterværk. At blande elektronisk og rock giver en helt specielt lyd, som man ikke kan lade være at fanges af.
The Mash And The Fury, Silver Surfer, Ghost Rider Go!!! og Häxan er mine favoritter + selvfølgelig den kendte Sycamore Feeling.
Neverglade er præcis det samme nummer som Trentemøllers remix af Mikael Simpsons "Medicin", dog med anden vokal, men det gør den ikke dårligere.

Nu må jeg hellere stoppe.. ;-)
5 stjerner herfra!

Hmmm.

Jeg er stor Trentemøller fan, dog blev jeg lidt skuffet over den nye stil han kører.
Er nu mere til den mere elektroniske side af det han laver. Savner de mange små detajler af forskellige lyde.
Mange af sangene er dog fangende, og kan sagtens høres igen og igen.
Helt sikkert ét købværdigt album ;)
