I don't know what it is about the genetic makeup of Scandinavians that makes them prone to making good music, but there has to be something there. Eggstone is the umpteen-thousandth good band to come out of the region. Also, they may have the dumbest name of any Swede-pop outfit. Just thought I'd throw that in there.

Anyway, if you are at all a connoisseur of fine hand-crafted pop from Scandinavia, Eggstone should scratch your itch. They're bright, shiny, jangly, joyful, and wonderful. Somersault is the best Eggstone album I have ever come across. It's pure power pop executed perfectly. Check out "Desdemona" if you want to know all about it 'bout it.
