Remember the ‘90s? God, I do. Amongst some amazingly brilliant stuff a lot of the bands from then were rubbish weren’t they? Utter Garbage. We must remember this amongst the clamour to re-listen, re-work and re-issue all things early ‘90s. But that doesn’t stop a whole host of young pretenders being deeply in thrall to the fuzzy guitars, lolloping beats and indistinct vocals of any group who had once heard a My Bloody Valentine record.
The opening track on this, the second album by Stockholm’s Let’s Say We Did, sounds like an amalgamation of any of this stuff. It’s like Catherine Wheel never happened. Weirdly on the next song the drop all the effects and concentrate one recreating of the more schmaltzy Field Mice ballads. You know, the ones where Bob whispers sweet nothings into Anne Marie’s ear, forgetting the tape recorder is on and we can hear the whole thing. Elsewhere on the first side the album veers around the vagaries of Scandinavian pop. Always ploddy, never life affirming.
On the flip things pick up a little with a more kraut-like track that recalls the exact midpoint between The Radio Dept and Quickspace, ‘The Stars Above Looked So Bright And Green’ sounds a little Stone Roses and contains one of the sweeter melodies on the record. Overall the album is an oddball mixed bag of ‘90s influences, each track sounding quite distinct from the next.
