Viva! - I Splitter Av Ljud LP 1982

I had not listened to this for some years now and i gave it a spin yesterday. what a record! on this album viva! managed to take all the great stuff simple minds did and take the sound to a new and unique level. this is high class new wave with fantastic songs. i especially like "du som ingen förstod", which they released as a single as well. apparently they got quite a lot of critical acclaim for this record and were praised as a new swedish musical hope, and i can understand why. sadly, after this release they never got the big commercial break and remained in obscurity. i guess this was their artistic and commercial peak. and by the way, dont miss the new blog with radio recordings of swedish bands, where you can get a fine liveshow with viva.
VIVA!
