Album: Susana and the Magical Orchestra, 3 (Rune Grammofon)

Karen Carpenter meetsJoy Division in gothicsynth-pop heaven. Thecult Norwegian duo'sthird album more thanupholds their excellentstandards while offeringa further twist to the tale:a full conversion tobeyond-the-pale 1980skeyboard sounds.

Notall the 10 songs hereare equally good but atits best – "Recall","Someday", "Palpatine'sDream", a beautifulcover of Roy Harper's"Another Day" – thisis truly awe-inspiringmusic, provoking deepthoughts and sublimefeelings.
