Artist discography


Universal has recently released a compilation called ?Here without you? that I only think is available in Sweden at the moment. The background for the album?s release is quite obvious since both 3 Doors Down and Hoobastank can be heard frequently on radio here and climbs the charts as well. Its a smart draw with using that success and to release an album filled with 17 more or less safe modern rock ballads. But personally I do have to say that this is quite a boring collection of songs that you have heard 1300 times too much like ?Wherever you will go? (The Calling) and ?How you remind me? (Nickelback). Anyone that wanna hear those songs one more time? No, ok, just what I thought.

Even if I don?t sound that positive I must say that we got a few highlights here like the Ryan Adams cover of Oasis ?Wonderwall?, the monster tune ?Clocks? by Coldplay and of course the hit that never became one, ?If you?re gone? (Matchbox 20). But overall this does feel way too safe for those that doesn?t live in a terrace house, drives a Volvo and watches Bingolotto every single week.

This collection doesn?t give me anything to be honest.........
