Album Review
Kremit The Horn
Reviewed 2007-01-09 
Indie rock from Iceland. Chorus la, la, la's, acoustic guitar with the rock band...the normal song and dance. What makes this different is: some of the lyrics are in Icelandic & on most songs there are full chorale horns with a touch of 70s. Sometimes the music is laughably bad to the point of listenability. From Bjork to this?!?!

*1-(2:24) Instr. lalala's, triumphant chorale.
*2-(2:58) Fast. Glockenspiel. Horns acc. melody, accented by cymbal crashes.
3-(4:00) Mid/slow. Wide harmonies, with 2 people on each part. acoustic guitar. triumphant horn chorale. Beat enters -2:20. Stays fairly subdued tho.
4-(3:27) Slow. mostly quiet, but loud horn climax in middle. Slide guitar. Pink Floydish.
5-(2:18) "I can love you in a wheelchair baby" It isn't clear if he is in earnest, or mocking. If he's earnest, it isn't clear in what way. Draw your own conclusions. The music is....bland.
6-(2:50) Laughably bad.
7-(1:44)
8-(2:56) Starts bare horns. Fast rock at -2:22. Completely out of place rock guitar.
*9-(3:51) Bare stately mournful horns. -2:35 rock starts. Amusing...it almost sounds like something off of "Rockin to the Classics" where they'd put rock behind classical music.
10-(2:27) Picked steel string. Then standard sound. La la la's. Instr.
11-(2:55) Drum solo. Horns enter. Midway, music drops, bare vox. Drum & horn theme re-enters.
*12-(2:23) Starts acoustic guitar strum and glockenspiel. Reprise of first song. beat enters and joyous chorus follows.
