Customer Reviews

Album of the year

Might be the best thing Minor Majority has ever done. Had this for one week and allready consider it this years very best album. The songwriting and lyrics are ace, the band is better and tougher than ever before. Not to be missed.

Pure melancholic joy

'Either way I think you know' is a many faceted record that will spook you with its cleverly arranged violins, bring you into guitar induced euphoria, tantalize you with storytelling and seduce you both with lead and backing vocals. Minor Majority literally shows off their professionalism and tightness, making each song a treasure for you to uncover; clearly the band had a long studio session, because the songs are thorough and entail all kinds of surprises for a keen listener.

Opening song 'In a way I think you know' is hurtful and unresolved with claustrophobic piano, almost out of tune, blending in with Karen Jo Fields' whispering guest vocals. The second version of the song, with the same name as the album, comes with producer Ole Petter Andreassen's sore and desperate backing vocals and is a pure fountain of nineties rock n' roll. The song's luxurious overflow of guitar and level lead vocal makes me just love it! 'Dance' has a beat, piano, bass and horns that are (at least to me) reminiscent of Madness, it is so much fun, but still holds on to that desperate quality of whirling around on the dance floor (just a tad too drunk), trying to escape.

Many of the songs have country qualities, beautiful and down-to-earth-love-song 'Like someone changed the rules for us', poetic 'When John passed away' and 'Try me'. 'Try me' is pure country melancholic joy, steel guitar sliding across and blending in with the backing vocals, the banjo being banjo, and it all comes together as James Taylor with a better band and a less nasal voice. Epic 'To let go of that load' has fantastic guitar details, tempo and crescendoing violins bound together with vocals that fluently tell the dramatic story. 'Song for Sybil' is drooping with bass, truly beautiful simple guitar and piano,and beautiful lyrics.

'After tonight' is darker, slower, and different, showing that it is written by Harald Sommerstad. It forces lead vocalist Pål Angelskår's voice up a notch, which he handles very well, and is a jewel that will grow on you, with its piano theme carrying the song into a magnificent guitar solo. While 'Bloomed and died' is a straightforward Nick Drake bittersweet tune, 'Ready made' is a puzzle of a song. It has a large amount of cymbals, making one think of the days when drummers were a little more out of control (eg seventies). It doesn’t really have a regular structure because it sort of has two refrains. The first soothing refrain turns out to be backing vocals, while the second is more like a repeated bridge with tambourine, surprising energy and backing vocals in a key that you wouldn't really expect.

I've saved my favorite to the end: 'Dorian leaving the table in rage' never had me thinking about Dorian Gray, I must admit, but about blues as it was when (British) blues actually was rock n' roll (eg sixties). The trail is picked up from the band's previous blue song 'Dark half': angry and raw vocals, bass and guitar details rightly demanding attention, piano that sucker punches you and a guitar solo that will leave you breathless.

Fantastic Album

Again, Minor Majority impresses me with this brand new album!The lyrics show depth, insight as well as great understanding of the human nature. They are all interesting stories. The music is fetching as always, and the album is a natural part of every music lovers collection. The band members are excellent musicians and their performance enhances the music and the lyrics perfectly. I think this must be the best buy this year!


Formed: 2000 in Oslo, Norway

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '00s

Norway's Minor Majority plays gentle, polished acoustic folk-pop with a sophisticated, sometimes country-tinged vibe. Like their similarly hushed countrymen Kings of Convenience, Sweden's Nicolai Dunger (circa Tranquil Isolation), and Iceland's Funerals, they manage to assimilate a distinctly American strain of rootsy melancholia into a style that only subtly hints at their Scandinavian origin. Formed in 2000 as a studio project of Pål Angelskår and Andreas Berczelly, the group has steadily gained...
