Album Review

Let There Be Morning marks the stateside debut for the Swedish alternative rock act the Perishers. Just three years before, they made their independent introduction with From Nothing to One. The 11-song set was dreamy and earnest, a decent first album, but not exactly focused. Let There Be Morning breathes much easier with its atmospheric piano-laden melodies, light acoustic guitars, and frontman Ola Klüft's warm presentation. There's a brighter sense of optimism on this album, but not in that gushing kind of way that made Coldplay international stars with A Rush of Blood to the Head. It's Klüft's own way of looking beyond the scope of life's problems that is the core of the Perishers' appeal, and it's all without pride. Let There Be Morning is such an appropriate title because of its warm hints and hopeful overtones. Songs such as the lilting title track and "Weekends" play into this, capturing a gingerly kind of freshness. "Sway" yearns for slumberland. Singing about unrequited love never gets old. The Perishers do it in such a way that's not overbearing. "My Heart" and "Nothing Like You and I" are proof of the band's sincerity, and such a trait should carry them a long way in this business. Fans of Radiohead's more melancholic moments on Pablo Honey and Keane's chart singles should enjoy the bliss that is Let There Be Morning.

Customer Reviews

Coldplay-lite, and it's not that bad...

Hey you shoegazer! You with the busted guitar and the Kurt Cobain hair cut, I'm talkin' to you! Better start practicing, cuz this band is practicing and their beginning to develop their own sound. If Coldplay, Starsailor, Travis, and Snow Patrol is very high on you Play Count, this is an excellent album to take a chance on. They get brownie points for sounding like genuine Euro hippie trash, but their hauntingly delicious, good to the last drop. Now put down that ipod and give me 20 push ups...

Perish the thought ...

that you won't love this album. Get it now. I was introduced to the Perishers' song "Still Here" on Hear Music, Starbuck's XM Radio station. Every time I heard it, liked it more - it's still my favorite. But, with each song on this album, I feel the same. I can't turn it off, without flipping back to hear this one or that one just one more time. I'm Still Here. I'm not Going Out. I can't stand to live without. I'm having Trouble Sleeping. I sure could use the rest. It's twisting in my head. I'll need Pills to sleep at night but I will be OK. Let There Be Morning on the Weekends to help us forget who we will be on Monday morning. There's Nothing Like You and I have heard before so why do I even try? I have my head among the clouds. Let this be A Reminder, once we were just like them, I hope this will never be again. My Heart wants to make you Sway. I know you'll come around. We'll be as happy as can be. I'm Still Here.

take a chance and buy it, you WILL NOT regret it.

this album is a true hidden gem... not many people know about The Perishers, but this album is incredible. I didn't know anything about the Perishers when I bought it - I'd just heard one or two songs from them. But this album is by far the best "find" I've had. It's pretty mellow, and it definitely has it's place, but it fills that spot better than anything else. Highlights for me: Weekends, Nothing Like You and I, Trouble Sleeping. So my advice is if you are going to take a chance on one album this year, one band you don't know anything about, this is the one.
