jj n° 3
Critical Mass
Label: Sincerely Yours/Secretly Canadian

by Barry Walters

Like the vague biographical details of its members, this mysterious Swedish dream-pop band's music remains hazy -- mucho echo, blurry harmonies, soft acoustic instrumentation buoyed by generous synth strings, and a bright white ambience suggesting both sunny Balearic beaches and blinding Scandinavian snowstorms. Yet its emotions are conversely vivid. Turning Lil Wayne's chorus on the Game's "My Life" into a piano-accompanied prayer, jj celebrate the rapture of a love so severe it obliterates consciousness: Over a classically genteel arrangement floats the album's key lyric, "Take me away like I overdosed on heroin."
