Album Review

With his early work being club-aimed music that was still musically rich enough for headphone listening, Danish producer Trentemøller came on like a composition student with a dark streak, plus a love of progressive house music and techno. His debut album, 2006's The Last Resort, was a deep, dark, and delicious overabundance of bass and reverb, thumping away like Berlin or Detroit techno but then layering melodies that touched upon pop, all while the producer side of the artist dropped every glitchy trick in the book. It would seem like he was showing off if those plentiful edits and layers-upon-layers didn't work, but when he went indie pop and soundtrack-esque on 2010's The Great White Yonder, the results varied. The album jumped from indie song to house-music-all-night-long with a Duane Eddy-styled guitar rave-up in the middle, and while this third effort does essentially the same thing (the rave-up now replaced with a twangy, dusty, "Personal Jesus"-type cut called "Trails"), Lost is where all the pieces fall into place. Blame the superior songwriting or the natural flow of the compositions as the indie group Low join for "The Dream," a song that's wistful and ruminates about life on the level of a beloved Pink Floyd deep track."Gravity," with Jana Hunter, suggests the soaring My Bloody Valentine anchored by the tick-tock of Kraftwerk, although the swaying melody and the swollen melancholy are entirely Trentemøller. "Candy Tongue," with Marie Fisker, is a gentle mix of electro and acoustic that plays to the producer's love of wonder and mystery, while both "Come Undone" with Kazu Makino and "Deceive" with Sune Rose Wagner border on house music for Goths, even if they come with a refinement the electro-industrial crowd rarely offers. As on his previous effort, the instrumental numbers cross over from clubland with the great "Still on Fire" thumping its majestic New Order-like bass, while "Morphine" flirts with drone and world music on a cut that feels like a dangerous journey to buy the drug, but "Hazed" and the hidden coda that complete that album bring reminders of The Last Resort's endless, echoing nightscape. It's an ironic title for an album that's so sure, and even if his early fans frown as their dancing shoes collect dust, complaining about what doesn't happen on Lost seems silly when compared to the wonderful and intoxicating things that actually do.

Customer Reviews

"Auteur" is appropriate

It was through Trentemoller that I was introduced to Low, Lower Dens and The Drums. To hear him bend these amazing talents into one voice, characteristically divergent from his previous work while maintaining both their signature styles as well as that Trentemoller feel is a gift.

As an aside, I'm a little confused that the Apple provided caption for five stars is "It's great." At least give me an exclamation point!

Insanely Good...

... how this release sounds. Trentemoller has picked the right compositions, the right vocalists, the right touch. Of all his albums, this one JUMPS off as my favorite. Less Clubby, more Quality. Less predictable, more Goodness.

from what the previews offer...

I think this is going to be a solid trentemoller album. I think the majority of his listeners fell deeply in love with his debut album, the last resort. his second album was very solid, just a different style than what his listeners were expecting. nevertheless, the second album grew on me, and after a couple listens through these previews, i think this third album will be another strong outing for the man who makes his sounds sound so beautiful.
