The increased use of vocals may surprise fans of their stunning debut, Melody AM, but the songwriting talent still shines forth, and the sheer joy of catchy tunes like "49 Percent" (just try not to sing along) and "Alpha Male" (destined to be a set-opener for all eternity) cannot be denied. Norway clearly remains the place to watch for rich yet playful electronica.
