The COMPASS Group, January 2006

Artist: The Legends
Title: Public Radio
Label: Magnum Music

--By Ann Li, translated by Cara Steenstra

The Legends' last album, "Up Against The Legends", retained the light melancholic mood of Club 8 and the Acid House Kings with its soft vocals, bright rhythms and electronic music bass. With their new album, "Public Radio", The Legends move from Stockholm to England's Manchester of the early '80s, adding a huge dose of nostalgia to their music. This Swedish band started with nine members but has now condensed down to just one person, Johan Angergard. The single, "He Knows The Sun", and another song, "Something Good", both have light reggae rhythms as well as some influences from The Cure. The music is pretty similar to the album "Seventeen Seconds" and the song "Close To Me". Johan says that, apart from being influenced by New Order, bands like Felt and The Feelies are also significant references. This makes many fans wonder what musical turn The Legends will take next.
