Poor Rich Ones mine some rich pastures on this album. Their sound seems to exist at the convergence of Kent, Radiohead and My Bloody Valentine. The songs, for the most part, are darkly exuberant flirtations aided by a small dose of icy, quasi-Chamber Pop ethics. "Twins" and "Drown" exist in a pristine vacuum with wall of sound washes layered upon each other. William Marhaug's vocals recall the work of Placebo's Brian Moloko, with the range and emotion of Thom Yorke thrown in for good measure. Because Poor Rich Ones are from Norway, Happy Happy Happy can be seen as furthering the Scandanavian mastery of atmospherics found in the music of Kent and (of course) Sigur Ros. "New Lullaby" is a carnival of introspection, as violins compete with electronics and brittle vocals for the crown of prettiest element in a Song. "Clumsy" sounds like so many of the other bands mentioned here, but like many of the songs, it takes off on new tangents; for one thing, the keyboards which echo "Strawberry Fields Forever" are a genius touch. If nothing else is said about this immensely enjoyable song, Poor Rich Ones can be thanked for suggesting such a collaboration. There are so many shiny edges to grasp, and the entire album rings with a clarity of vision and delicate opulence. This album proofs that there's something magical afoot in Scandanavia.
