Kings of Convenience – Quiet Is the New Loud

18 01 2011

Listened: Wednesday December 29

Quiet Is The New Loud is a very important album from my college years. It’s one of those rare albums that less than 30 seconds into my first listen, I was already in love.

KOC is like the modern European version of Simon & Garfunkel. The guitars are lovely, the harmonies beautiful, and the lyrics brilliantly metaphorical.

They’ve never made another album quite like this one. Like a lot of things in life, it’s something I can’t hold in my hand; it slips through my fingers and is gone very quickly.
