LOST YOU IN A SECOND (FEAT. BJÖRN DIXGARD)
At The Baboon Shows seventh full-length album, it´s – as usual, the pedal to the metal that applies. This punk rock is so hot and full of energy that an investigation for doping should be done, hahaha. And I absolutely love Cecilia Bostrom’s voice. Love it.
Sure there is a core in “The World Is Bigger Than You”. The core is frustration. A willingness to understand what dirty world we actually live in. But somewhere in the middle of everything that feeling gets lost. Almost a little “just because” some of the songs doesn’t really fit in. But it doesn’t have to do with the slow and mid-tempo songs. Not at all.
When the album starts with the song “Class War” I am on my toes and super excited about what’s to come. At times, the same atmosphere remains. But it’s not until the last song that features the magnificent Björn Dixgård from Mando Diao that the music pop takes over. To see The Baboon Show live is an honor and gives you a feeling of a steam locomotive that never ever ends. Some parts of the album live up to that expectation. Some don’t. (GAFFA)
