The time has come for the Swedish, pop crooner to prepare the sweetest dessert before the night falls over this beautiful world.

This is everything you could want from an indie pop album. There's something so captivating about Jens Lekman's super-smooth baritone, and the juxtaposition of his outwardly innocent delivery and eminently quotable, witty lyrics is both honest and brilliant. Each melody is pristine, and I haven't heard anything quite like the instrumentation either; I don't know if these strings and horns are the sound of Kortedala or not, but I wish they could soundtrack my own life.

One of the most clean voices I have ever hear, not necessarily unique, but magnificently strong and courageous.

Originally not knowing what I was going to get listening to this album, I was blown away at the immense orchestral instrumentations, as well as the use of every instrument known to man. Jens sings from a place of childlike sincerity and honesty but rather with a Steven Merritt sounding influence in his voice. This album signifies the quickest time I ever fell in love with an album.
