You didn't have to be cynic to write off the TV 2 after dødssejleren ’The good life’ from 2015, but there are actually signs on the current sequel, ’Dense traffic in Herning’.
Veteranernes 114. album - how it feels in each case - opens with a surprisingly dirty bluesrock riff on the ’Don't Get Me Started’, and you can sense a new departure in the band's familiar sound.
the TV-2 is and remains, however, TV-2, so far down in the nuances of finding surprises from the 37-year-old orchestra.
Steffen Brandt shows, however, an appealing tender and personal side of his usually ironic songwriting on the case and very human ’Tintin in Tibet’.
Generally composes the subtle samfundsrevsende frontman, however, any skewed portraits of the right regular people, and kvindeskæbnerne in both the disc's title track and ’Buddy Holly in Sønderborg’ is presented with a certain freshness and musical flair.
in turn, biting satire not in ghettosangen ’Quiet and calm Sunday in Aarhus V’, where one gets the impression that Brandt has spent significantly more time in Risskov.
He has never been a great singer, and the voice has not been larger, so it feels almost as if he recites poems, when TV 2 loses the melody on, among other things ’This is not a quiz’, ’Destroyed the country’ and ’the Boys from Caltex’.
the Quartet comeback to englishman Greg Walsh, who produced some of the band's biggest successes, but also Kristian Leth helps, and they provide glimpses of the state of hawaii with a driven fyndighed, kicking down a little to an otherwise huge bedaget and predictable expression.
the TV-2 goes dead in their grind long before the ’Close traffic in Herning’ rolling in the goal. Nevertheless they pushed it in the garage.
the Cover to 'Dense traffic in Herning, denmark', containing 12 songs and is produced by Kristian Leth and british Greg Walsh.
