Album Review

The second album by indie-electro pop trio Miike Snow once again fuses the leisurely vocals of American singer Andrew Wyatt with warm electronic soundscapes provided by the Swedish production team behind Britney Spears' "Toxic." As is a common hallmark for sophomore albums, Happy to You is not as singles-oriented as the Miike Snow debut, and tends to be a little more adventurous. Even so, it is still a good-natured record. There is an intensified Coldplay-esque orchestral drama to the lush, panoramic production and the twee melodies will appeal to mainstream fans, but like on the debut, wonky dance is their specialty. "Paddling Out" borrows piano stabs and a four-on-the-floor beat from '90s house, "Black Tin Box" is a sultry number featuring indie songstress Lykke Li, and "God Help This Divorce" is a single that manages to be sparkling despite its brooding undertones. Toeing the line is a common theme for the group. Happy to You is an album that aims for commercial appeal, so there is a noticeable push and pull between prescribed pop and the eclectic electro that the team is known for, but the songs that land in the dead center have a nice even balance. [Happy to You was also released with a bonus disc containing two non-LP tracks ("Garden" and "No Starry World") and five remixes of songs from the album.]

Customer Reviews

Great Sophomore effort

Just finished listening to Miike Snow's new album, Happy to You.

Devil's Work is the highlight of this album, from the full horn section to a strong piano accompaniment. The song reminds you why you liked their first album so much.

Other songs on the album are very good and many show off solid vocals from both Karlsson and Winnberg, at some points the vocals have a "Cat Stevens'ish" sound to it.

The album is a little slower paced than the self titled "Miike Snow," but it is just as enjoyable. Like their first album, it will take a full listening to, or two, to feel it start to grow on you. Bottom line is this is a very good follow up for Miike Snow.

Loving it.

A very solid sophomore album. The wait was worth it. Now, I gotta catch them on tour. I do say swedes are brilliant musicians.

What a find! Buy this album!

I read an Best of 2012 blurb in the L.A. Times which mentioned this album and the critic stated it was his favorite album of 2012. I loved their first album but had missed this one.

I just bought this album and I can't stop listening to it. Such a great tunes, really interesting and clever arrangements, and that unique Miike Snow sound. Great work, guys!
