Many of the songs bear clear traces of Burt Bacharch, in others it sounds like Bo Kaspers (Swedish pop/jazz band) and in some one can associate to the later works of Elvis Costello. Patrick Rydman has been appearing on the music and theatre scenes of Gothenburg for the past 15 years. Here he makes his debut with only original material, is the lead vocalist and plays the trumpet. Pretty much all the tracks are strong melodies that grow on you after a couple of listens...
