Album Review: Emotional Eternal by Melody's Echo Chamber
Very Good, Based on 1 Critic
The Line of Best Fit - 70 Based on rating 7/10
Mainly recorded on the outskirts of Stockholm with Dungen's guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Reine Fiske and Fredrik Swahn (best known as a member of The Amazing, another underappreciated Swedish institution of contemporary psych-rock), Emotional Eternal returns to more conventionally song-driven templates after the looser explorations of 2018's Bon Voyage (which also featured Fiske and Swahn). The mood is gentler and more upbeat, like sinking your face into a soft, warm pillow of sound. At its best, the results are startlingly vibrant.
