The Danish duo's sixth album is all sorrow swathed in the band's usual static-y hum, but everything feels a little lighter and smoother this time around, like they've scrubbed off a few coats of distortion. In effect, their simple guitar-pop melodies stand out even more, mostly at the top of the album, with ballad "Young and Cold," which ends in touches of sleepy piano that grow eerier on the dark and psychedelic "Observations." Things pick up in the second half, with the upbeat jangle of "She Owns the Street" and "Downtown," and the fuzzed rock of "Till the End."
