After two albums of lovingly crafted European tinged folk music (2006's Gulag Orkestar and 2007's The Flying Club Cup) many fans will be surprised that the band have returned after a four year break with, what is essentially, a pop record. It takes many of their established flourishes and seems to aim them directly at the nu-folk generation (this may be accidental as Mumfords et al might not have been on the radar when much of this album was written but it grates all the same).
