Editors’ Notes

What punk bands do for their second albums is often more revealing than what they do on their first. On their self-titled debut, Sweden’s Holograms offered up rapid-fire two-minute punk songs that veered from hardcore rhythms to Factory Records homages (mostly Joy Division tributes). But for the follow-up, Forever, that’s all been replaced by a more deliberate and grinding approach where the songs insist on their lengths; they're less joyful explosions of sound than matter-of-fact exercises that get the job done, with the best songs turning an arty cheek. The organ that shows up on the outskirts of “Rush” adds a sense of The Stranglers. Singer Anton Spetze hasn’t yet decided who he wants to be, but the Swedish lad has determined that English-language accents in the mold of The Cure's Robert Smith serve him best for the grand expression of “Luminous.” Whether the group will find its way to its own modern gothic sound remains to be seen, but “Attestupa,” “Wolves," and “Lay Us Down” give proof that they can go in that direction.
