This is what Gyllene Tider told about the record:
We are terribly pleased with our very last album. Our ambition was to maintain our tireless love of pop music while the time has passed and we have grown older. It’s been 40 years since we started playing together. Everything has changed, but everything has also stood still in some strange way…
The guys can be very proud of what they have created. If it is really the end of their career as Gyllene Tider, this album is a fab last one. You can hear the unique GT sound as well as fresh melodies. You can dance along the uptempo and midtempo songs and get sentimental during the ballads. The Gessleish rhymes can’t be missing of course, there is a great dose of them.
While listening to the trumslagarpojke song I’m wondering why Micke Syd didn’t sing too often in GT. He sounds amazing! Helena Josefsson and Malin-My Wall provided backing vocals on Samma skrot och korn and they also sound great. Mr. G shows well his high and low voices. His vocals are powerful on the uptempo songs and soft on the ballads.
Göran’s Farfisa magic is outstanding, but you can hear several other instruments playing, including saxophone and trumpet too. MP’s guitar-playing and Anders on bass sound perfect too, not to mention Harplinge Ringo’s drumming.
By each and every re-play of the album you can discover new elements of the songs. A sound you didn’t hear before, a vocal addition you didn’t pay attention to for the first time you listened, an instrument that your ears couldn’t recognize until you heard the song for the third time. Those tiny little details that make the songs so enjoyable every time you listen. Hats off!
