  1. Too much noise for my taste, what is the piano doing there, and whats up with all those vocals. I like their more simplistic songs better.

    A personal note. Do you have an older sister? No, then why are you calling your sister “little sister”? You are both grownups 🙂

    Too much NOISE?! Well then you wouldn’t like some of the other things I like, say Sonic Youth.

    what is the piano doing there

    It’s a Kent thing.

    all those vocals

    I actually think that’s one of the things that work well with this song.

    Do you have an older sister?

    Nope. Just the one.

    No, then why are you calling your sister ?little sister??

    She’s not my older sister, and she’s not just my sister. She’s my little sister, and there’s nothing you or she can do to change that. Well maybe time travel.

  3. Since Isola they’re one of my favorites, but dont know why they refuse to release the english versions of the lastest albums 🙂

  4. Joen says:

    Isola is a fantastic album.

    As for english versions, well, they tried with both Isola and Hagnesta Hill, both with varying degrees of success. They even released a few tracks (Quiet Heart and Just Like Money) in english only. The problem is, Joakim Bergs accent is pretty heavy, and doesn’t work as well on English. That, and the albums didn’t sell that well.

    So while Vapen & Ammunition was planned in english (they even wrote out the title, Guns & Ammunition in the video to the single Dom Andra), it somehow stumbled on the way to being made.

    Joakim has, at one time, said that it’s double the work to create the same album in two languages.

    have you heard min v?rld?

    No, not yet! Is the maxi single available for “physical” purchase yet?

    I really and honestly don’t know 🙁 I am not Swedish, I am American, so anything they release will never be released here ( sucks!! ) A friend from Sweden sent it to me… so maybe it has? All I know is that Martin Sk?ld’s bass has never been hotter! If you want.. email me at [spamproofed it], I could send it till you buy it. I am going to buy it too when it becomes available on a website I can buy from.

    I adore Kent, from what little I’ve heard of them (mostly Isola); 747 calms me down tremendously. I agree that the clips are a bit percussion-heavy and not quite the soft, flowing Kent I’m used to, but then again, the clips are only a small piece of the whole song. The vocals on Ingenting are promising 😀

    Thanks so much for the offer, but I managed to get a hold of it myself.

    I generally like pop music, after all I like Depeche Mode and even New Order, so I can definately manage the new more pop kent. It is different though. I still think Hj?rta & Sm?rta EP & Hagnesta are their two best albums.

    Isola is bloody fantastic.

    Have been listening to “Min v?rld”. Have to keep in mind it’s a b-side track, which is traditionally a track deemed unfit for the actual record. I noticed an interesting development of Jockes lyrics.

    Previously these delicious indie lyrics from the Isola record:

    H?runder vattnet ?r jag bl?. I poolen doftar v?rlden klor.

    In english:

    Down under water I am blue. In the pool, the world smells chlorine.

    Now we get:

    Ta en timeout, spara spelet, jag har bara et halvt liv kvar nu.

    In english:

    Take a timeout, save the game, I’ve only got half a life left.

    Obviusly these are the tender reflections of a middle-aged man, but under the guise of videogame metaphors… really?
