Band of Spice
Reviewer: Eric Compton
I try to follow as much work as possible but get confused with Kayser, Spice and the RJ Band, Band of Spice and whatever else Spice is actively pursuing. Regardless, dropping the multiple projects, 'Shadows Remain' is a career highlight for the Swedish singer and songwriter. The album is this sort of autobiographical story regarding a certain point in his life. It's a lot of variety, poetically building around hard rock with driving rhythms, spacey drums and a slight nod to stoner madness. "Don't Bring Me Flowers" is the album highlight, a hook-laden, punchy track that begs 'don't bring me flowers until I'm dead'. Love it.
