By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Feb. 22 2007
Format: Audio CD
Mew is a mishmash band -- a little indie-rock, a little prog, a little pop, a little hard-rock and a little art rock.

And in their third album "Frengers," the Danish band mixes all of those together, and lets listeners hear the grand extent of what they can do. This album is rich with atmospheric music and fiery instrumentation -- an absolutely dazzling, powerful slab of rock'n'roll.

It opens with the shimmering riffs and kinetic basslines of "Am I Wry? No," a hard-edged song with choirlike backing vocals. It grows into a soaring rock epic, before falling back to Jonas Bjerre's high, sharp voice. "Farrah now that we're here/can you tell me exactly how I should/have done?/Farrah drives with her eyes closed/do you ever inflict unwanted memories?"

It gets soft and wintry at the start of the next song, only to blossom out into a fast-paced rocker laced with bells and synth. The songs that follow are the whole sonic palette: muscular rockers, airy piano ballads backed with synth, driving guitar rockers, surreal psychfolk, and lightning-quick rock'n'roll that veers between guitar pop and the hard stuff.

Maybe that's what makes Mew so appealing -- you can't put a label on their sound (psych-pop-prog-hard-art-rock?) and you can't sit still whenever it's playing. Whenever their music settles into a signature "sound," they turn around and change it yet again.

Every song is layered with instrumentation -- some incredibly strong riffs, loud basslines, a fluid piano melody of two, a little synth, and some sharp percussion are all smoothed into one in songs like "Eight Flew Over, One Was Destroyed." Best of all, their music has an epic, powerful quality -- "Am I Wry? No" has the quality of a feisty thunderstorm.

I recently just started listening to Mew. Not sure how they passed me by as I listen to a lot of music. In saying that, I can certainly agree with all the praise they have received. Listening to Mew is challenging in a very good way. They're amazing musicians, and Jonas Bjerre certainly has a distinctive voice. Frengers consists of 10 songs, each of which could be one's favorite. A great recording and again I thank Amazon for having this in stock as I could not find it in any record stores locally. If you haven't listtened to Mew, please take a chance, you'll be rewarded.

I first heard this album when i was camping. My friend had it and was playing it over and over again. But back then i didnt think that much to them. Then a few months later i heard "she came home for christmas" on the radio and i was hooked. This is easily one of my favourite album ever. It tells a story, not through words, but through music. Mew need to be heard by more people over in the UK and USA. this really is a treat that they are missing out on. Its just brilliant!!!!

Mew is really one of the best bands in the world because of their really new and innovating style, and because of the way they keep this style really really cool in all of the songs, some of the songs which really stands out on this album is she spider, comforting sounds, snow brigades, she came home for christmas, and so on... you will never regret buying this album... I sure never had...
see ya
