Only four years have passed and they are back already: MILLION, six of my favourite Swedes :) Four (much too) long years have come and gone since their strong "We, Ourselves & Us", can "Electric" keep what the previous album had promised? Hell yeah! And then some!
Had "We, Ourselves & Us" already been nicely crunchy, so they have added another pound with "Electric" and the mix definitely fits here, crunchy guitars, pumping bass, very catchy songs and gripping choruses, which you can easily sing along at first listen already, can hardly get out of your memory and even after 20 listens do not show the least sign of wear!
The great opener "Wrong Side" sets the pace, energetic, driving, melodic, catchy, strong chorus, great! And then they continue, hit after hit, the super-catchy "Candyman", "Get Down To Business", "Eye Of The Storm", dealing with the Titanic, the driving "Step On The Brakes", the brilliant groove-monster "Opinion Machine" (great guitars, huge drive, fitting lyrics!), the fast cracker "Narrow Mind Land", the groovingly starting, then almost exploding "Kiss Of Death", all kicking some major ass, gripping songs that are just plain fun!
MILLION simply stand for: energy, dynamics, great hooks, crunchy guitars, superb melodies, strong songs, brilliant vocals, shortly: quality!
Melodic Rocker/Metaller won't find a way past "Electric", even today a classic of the genre and even four years after its release one of my favourite albums! (Online October 22, 2002)
