An album of sunny, warm electronica from a cold country, highly listenable at any time of day. It's interesting, distinctive and masterfully produced throuhgout. Naming stand-out tracks would initially seem like a recital of the track listing: the infectious single "So Easy", the bleepy "Eple", the chilled and bendy "Sparks", the shimmering harp piece "In Space", and especially the hypnotic melody of "Poor Leno". The second half is slightly less memorable. "She's So" starts off like an extract from Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here", with its 70's style synth sound and sax.
