9/10 Phil Staff review, 22 February 2012

It's a well known fact that I like Olafur Arnalds. Perhaps as well known as that water is wet and without it we'd all be very thirsty. So, pretty well known then. I grabbed this all excitedly and here I am writing a review. This is the soundtrack to 'Another Happy Day' which features Demi Moore (who?) and Ellen Barkin (who?). I've not seen the film and I've no idea what it's about but I'm guessing there's a whole load of misery and beauty in there (probably more misery...) judging by what I've heard of Mr Arnalds and this album so far! There's some beautiful pieces of music on this album. It does sound more like a soundtrack than some of his other albums as some of the music sounds more incidental as it pootles along all incidentally. But sandwiched in between the pootling incidentals are more 'songy' pieces which are comprised with that there strings and piano business he does so well. Hugely maudlin and sentimental sounding but it's so good you'd be inhuman (or dead) not to feel at least slightly affected by the power of his music.  It's just that moving! God damn he does it so well too. If I was in Iceland I'd go and find him and take him to the pub and buy him a drink (if I could afford one). I've said this before but if you're a fan of the Max Richter strings and piano misery then this is for you! An album of gorgeousness.
