Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-08-05
This is an interesting band, sometimes very minimal, somewhat poppy & other times melancholy, slow and more minimal. Lots of nice guitar work & pretty solid, nice songwriting. Sounds very akin to Felt, The Church, The Wake, Mark Lanegan, The For Carnation.

(((1))) Minimal beat, sullen vocals leading to a nice change in volume. Somewhat like Jeff Buckley or Nick Cave with an indie fix.
(((2))) Jazzy guitar, hollow beat, catchy vocals. Nice off-kilter strums. Deals with the shittiness of everyday life.
((((3)))) Pretty shimmery guitars, bitter & dark lyrics that may as well be death metal. Like a bleak & twisted version of the Church.
((4)) Straight-ahead indie pop, not bad for what it is not good either.
(((((5)))))) Sad, low-hearted guitar strum & spoken word, click track beat. dealing with ghosts & loss of love. The Brits like these folks known this stuff SO well-it’s mindblowing.
((((6))))) Sloooowww, Mark Lanegan-style smoky “last drink of the night, she just screwed me over again”. Stark & beautiful.
(((7))) Acoustic burdensome folk. Deals with wanting to get outta town - forever.
(((8))) Here’s that Wake influnece: medium electro beat, sorrow-filled vocals, pretty nice female/male dueting.
((((9)))) Slow, über-minimal, shimmering guitars, catchy folk-pop.
((((10)))) Gorgeous guitar & sad viola, very English sounding vocals not so much an accent as it is the atittude & approach.
(((11))) Big-ass re-mix of track #8. Sounds similar until the silly vocoder kicks in (at 4:26) & some bouncy clangy beats, too.
