Review Summary: The music that this album offers is very different from what you would expect. This album is completely different to the Millencolin sound - it is much more intimate and varies from country music to soft rock and pop songs.
Roll Roll And Flee is a fun yet slightly depressing album from Millencolin's Vocalist Nikola Sarcevic. The music that this album offers is very different from what you would expect. This album is completely different to the Millencolin sound - it is much more intimate and varies from country music to soft rock and pop songs.
The album starts off nicely and ends nicely too.
From Where Im Standing - This song uses a variety of calming instruments and has slightly effortless lyrics even though it is a classic track 3/5
Soul For Sale - This was the first track to be released from the album. It has a nice catchy chorus and is a calming song with good lyrics including "Everybody loves for the bankroll" purely one of the best on the album 3.6/5
Let Me In - This is another great acoustic song from the album. It is the Bernard Fanning "songbird" of Nikola. The lyrics are brilliantly pieced together where he wants the nature path to the girls heart.The song bounces into nice american country slow soloing. 3/5
Love Is Trouble - Another Bernard Fanning sounding song with very simple but soothing lyrics. This song will definately be a great inspiration to anyone in love or heartbroken 4/5
Tybble Skyline - A very country styled song that gives great emotion and intimacy with the lyrics connecting with the music. The lyrics are very simplistic but also good 3/5
Roll Roll And Flee - The greatest sad song I have heard since Millencolin's "The Ballad" the lyrics are brilliant for Nikola's standards and the track shows great beauty and emotion towards his love for another. 4/5
The Law Of John T - a song dedicated to John T (whoever he is?) that succeeds difficulty with pretty basic music and lyrics. Most of the background soloing and harmony vocals are good but this song doesn't exactly do it for me 2.5/5
Horse Bay Blues - A great track that gives you thoughts on the music and lyrics that Nikola Sarcevic plays and sings. The chorus is really good with the line "like a rose that fades away till its gone" 3/5
Thin Air - At first I hated this track but it slightly grew on me with the music and verses that ask questions towards life like "who is going to die when no one is around" although this track is far from good 2/5
Married - A more upbeat song on this depressing album that sings about how a girl can make you recognise yourself. The song is very western based and shows many influences from American country artists 3/5
Dont Kill The Flame - A great ending to the album with great lyrics and acoustic guitars. The song doesn't lack the right instruments at the right time. Overall a good chorus on a great track 4/5
All in all the album is good but not exactly brilliant. The album shows good effort but the lyrics arent like the smart Millencolin lyrics you would expect. Definately being played on my Ipod many times and to Millencolin fans it is definately worth a listen
Overall - 3/5
