Bring Back the 70's (Again and for the good !)
How is the sound ?
Hope you guys enjoyed the Italian week ! Now let’s stay in Europe but this time we’re going back to the land of Retro Rock, Sweden ! Magic Jove proves once again that the cold of the North refreshes the mind to create beautiful songs.
These guys are certainly the most 70’s sounding band of 2010’s you’ll ever heard ! Am I hearing the new Grand Funk Railroad, or maybe some unreleased tracks from Led Zeppelin ? Nop nop, it’s just a young power-trio who understood how to craft 4 perfect tunes in the style of their masters !
The 2 calmer songs, “Black Clouds in Western Sky” and “Track You Down” are just sublime, I won’t say I feel like I’m listening to “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You“, but I’m almost there..!
“Don’t Drag Me Down” & “Sonic Understanding” are both more rocking tunes, deeply taking their roots in Blues. They’re also the ones where I recognize the Graveyard similarities the most. And trust me, this is a nice compliment !
Why is this album worth listening ?
- They just captured the essence of what makes music to be so emotional 🙂
- It’s so smooth & groovy at the same time… You’ll either cry or move your ass !
- Are you patiently waiting for the next Graveyard ? Then Magic Jove will be your fix and even better !
In what situation you should listen to this album ?
It’s perfect when you’re looking at the sun rising in a gorgeous blue sky, feeling the fresh breeze of the morning on your face…
Something particular to note ?
A lot of 70’s sounding bands in the last reviews, but hey that’s not my fault if bands like Magic Jove pops up in every corner of the planet ! It’s just so cool that talented people still perpetuate the love for this unforgettable 70’s groove 🙂
