Four Mandarines became two and shortened their name to just Mandarines, and became as sweet as a sun ripe mandarin. And what could fit any better for Valentines day than some sweet and juicy power pop?
Three nice pop songs and one piano driven long and slow ballad for those of you who loves to slow dance and remember your pre teenage years when you were waiting to ask the cutest girl in class for the last dance before the disco closed. She turned you down? Aah, how sad! You became a punk rocker after that and don’t want to hear pop music? Aah, too bad as this record is all about the melodies and almost singing in tune all the time.
Am I the only one who hears some similarities from Mamma Mia for about a second in the vocal melody to You’re telling lies? By the way, that’s the forth time ABBA’s been brought up in a post at this site, so I think that makes them just as much punk as Bombanfall, or perhaps even more.
