"How long is too long" is the name of the first track of The Movements latest album and, in many ways, that one song summarizes the rest of the album. I'm not saying that it all sounds the same, quite the opposite, but all the tracks leaves me with the same feeling, the feeling of being incomplete. Or rather, having elements not completely belonging. Taking that first track as an example; the first minute blows me away every single time, but after that the mismatched vocals kill the buzz. There is something in each song, putting the lid on and it never really reaches its climax.

MP3: The Movements - Save me

Been too long since I've posted some quality Scandinavian rock'n'roll, especially if it didn't come the label Transubstans. The Movements' name is forgettable (at best), but their new album "The world, the flesh and the devil" on Alleycat Records is totally solid the whole way through and there's a couple tracks towards the end that are certifiably great. "Save me" is one of them; its cascading riff reminds me of "Nevermore", my favorite song from The Soundtrack of Our Lives. The Movements have a murkier, more mourn-some atmosphere though, no doubt helped along by the gurgle of the organ. More of a fantastical comic book store vibe too, though I kind of dig that about them. The entrance of the strings doesn't quite do the duty of "Nevermore"'s ripping solo, but there is another thing that links the band back to TSOOL and that's producer Björn Olsson. Yes, I know Björn was no longer associated with TSOOL by "Behind the music", but in my due diligence I did discover that he shares a songwriting credit on the number in question. Surprise! I honestly had no idea until right this second. Anyhow, great songs; both of them.
