Album Review

A year after the release of Kent, the band returned with a follow-up, Verkligen. The band toured during the year that passed, and judging by this record, it wasn't a very happy time. Here we get a bunch of melancholy songs, something the debut album lacked. The songs are often very good, but they are in general a bit too slow and quiet. But not all of the tracks are sleepy — "10 Minuter (For Mig Sjalv)" and "Halka" are two great uptempo tracks, and "En Timme En Minut" starts off as another sad song, but after a while lifts off; the wall of guitars so common on the first album are brought back to life here, and they keep on going for over eight minutes. To sum it up, this record isn't quite as good as the first one, but it's still a great album.
