The rest of the title is "You Can Have It...I Don't Want It Anymore/Yours 4-Ever," which sounds considerably more somber than the songs themselves feel. Far from being a farewell, Nicolai Dunger's seventh album is something of a consolidation of ideas explored separately on its two immediate predecessors, the jazzy Soul Rush and the folk-centered, largely acoustic Tranquil Isolation. The album's cover has the carefully posed, studied look of a late-'60s middle-of-the-road pop singer's "relevant" album (complete with pensive profile shot and artful cigarette smoke swirls), and there's a little bit of that peculiar collision of easy listening and light psychedelia in these songs as well.
