VÄRLDEN BRINNER: Vi Äger Natten!: LP

This record is the second full-length from the female-fronted Swedish band Världen Brinner. Slick production and packaging mask the near-blandness of these songs that end up working, strictly due to the stellar vocalist. The lyrics are in Swedish and they aren’t translated on the sleeve. I had fun imagining what the songs are about. When a singer’s voice is as strong as Världen Brinner’s, not much else matters. –Art Ettinger (ViciSolum, vicisolum.com)
