One of the best pop albums I've ever heard!

The above title might be an exaggeration, but my first impression of this album is just that. I read one review that said it sounds like a walk in the park. I'd say it's like a walk in the park where all the flowers, trees, and woodland creatures are dancing around you and all of a sudden everyone bursts into unified song and all the world seems right (a la Enchanted). Alright, sorry about that, but I couldn't control myself.

This duo has a great ability to meld harmonies, melodies, and beautiful instruments together for an album that is pure pop/folk perfection. You'll definitely be able to hear other Swedish bands (Shout Out Louds, Peter, Bjorn, & John, etc,) as an influence for their sound, but Marching Band take these influences and smooth them into a sound that's fun, creative, and just wonderful. No doubt some will have difficulty taking this much sugary sweetness into their musical diet, but Marching Band should appeal to a fairly broad audience. The lyrics are simple but clever, and add to the pleasant, joyous sound. I think I've found my summer album.

Favorite Tracks: Gorgeous Behavior, Travel In Time, Letters

This is quite an effortlessly prefect album.

I would do a song by song, but they are all so uniformly lovely and upbeat. I've listened to it 3 times through to try and find a track I didn't love. There isn't one. Highlights are: Feel Good About It, Travel in Time, Aggravate, and especially the opening track, For Your Love. The album has a shimmery lightness that is perfect for summer. Endlessly and effortlessly inspired. Buy this right now.

Where's this album been my whole life?!

I remember hearing "G.Behavior" on KCRW and being a little bit hesitant to fork over money for the whole album. But, it was well worth it. The whole album is great to listen to, while doing pretty much . . .anything! It's amazing. I havent't heard an album this good, in a long time.

Buy it!! Listen to it!! Feel Good About It !!
