5.0 out of 5 stars Another Fantastic CD by The Concretes Oct. 2 2008
By A. Trevino - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD is fantastic - I would recommend it to anyone - in fact I do. The songs are catchy and you find yourself singing along after a while. Victoria Bergsman was a fantastic lead singer. I can't get enough of this CD. If you like this CD and you haven't listened to their self titled album - I highly suggest doing so.

5.0 out of 5 stars I heart Victoria Sept. 9 2005
By alexander laurence - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Concretes have been one of the most successful Swedish bands in America in the past year or so. It has nothing to do with their live performances. They played about ten shows in America. It has everything to do with their song "Say Something New" being used in a commercial here. Since radio stations refuse to play new music on the radio, you are more likely to hear a new band on a commercial than on MTV or the radio. I saw The Concretes play live in NYC last year. They are a large ensemble. They are very talented. Their singer, Victoria Bergsman, is very shy. I saw them play twice. At the first show she wore a wig, like Stina Nordenstam, and a white dress. The second she was dressed normal. I tried to take a picture and someone from their entourage said "no pictures" even though everyone around me was taking pictures with their cellphones. This was at their KEXP performance. Most of this album reminds me of that performance. Only four or five of them played. It was mostly the duo Victoria and Maria. One of the songs they played was "The Warrior." Another was "Under Your Leaves." These songs are very acoustic and quiet. It's like the bare bones of The Concretes. These songs have none of the production and big Motown sound of their previous record. Their cover of "Miss You" seems misguided. Maybe songs by the Velvet Underground or Mazzy Star seem more appropriate. The Concretes have been around for a long time. This record is a good companion piece to their first record, which still sounds great after a year has passed. The Concretes are due for a really great follow-up record in 2006. Hopefully we can see them play over her more often. Quit hiding.
4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Vocals April 14 2009

Sweet Vocals - song writing pretty strong and it makes for an interesting Sunday morning coffee and papers album to chill in the background with.

I like this album but it does disappear off the playlist pretty soon.
Just heard it again on Pandora and reminded me that its above average.

Once again - Love the vocals

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE THIS CD! Dec 16 2005
By J. THOMAS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It is beautiful and timeless. Honestly, their first single off their last album "Can't Hurry Love" would kind of get on my nerves when it would come on Sirius...but not this cd. I can listen to it over and over all the way through. I bought it at the same time I got the new Cardigans "Super Extra Gravity", and while I love that cd, I think I love this one even more! If you like the Cardigans, Emiliana Torrini, or Fluke, you will probably love this one (maybe even more). Get it now. What are you waiting for?

5.0 out of 5 stars I keep playing it, over and over. Oct. 28 2005
By Mike Morone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Concretes are delightful. And so is this CD. It has a crisp, yet dreamy sound that is filled with lovely melodies and lyrics, both of which are powerful in their simplicity. But perhaps the most important ingredient is the plaintive female voice that is hypnotically beautiful. This is an impressive collection of songs. Hard to believe they're all b-sides.

Please, Concretes, I know you were in America in 2004, but at that time I didn't know you existed. You gotta come back!
