Broken Walls is another pop album. She Came After Midnight is powerpop with some unusual use of synthesized choral vocals. Lola combines aspects of powerpop and soft rock with brass, and has a strong, catchy chorus. Shine of Sun brings together a melody reminiscent of traditional folk or even a 19th century hymn, optimistic lyrics and piano/synth arrangement. Don't Ever Break Her Heart sets soaring, powerful vocals to a synth and beat driven mainstream style pop arrangement. Henry Ford is a lighthearted, quirky pop song about driving. Humanize is a new version of one of Hjörtur's older songs; synthpop with off-kilter sound effects and a massively addictive chorus with vocal harmonies. A really classic song that still remains one of my favourite tracks of his. You Took Me By Surprise sounds rather like 80s mainstream pop music, which is normally a style I don't have much time for, but Hjörtur is really able to pull this off. The song is well crafted, with another very strong, catchy chorus of the type that burrows itself into the brain. Although it sounds like it's from the 80s, it has the feel of being a classic rather than a dated relic of a bygone decade. This track is actually up there with my favourite songs of Hjörtur's, even though the genre it's from is something I don't normally enjoy. The fact that Hjörtur can make 80s-ish, mainstreamish pop music not only listenable but enjoyable just goes to show how talented he is. - Kim Harten, Bliss Aquamarine.
