Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the Swedish Indie Pop trio. For their sixth album, the band chose to work with a producer for the first time ever, enlisting the skills of Per Sunding at Tambourine Studios. Gimme Some, the follow up to 2009's more experimental Living Thing, is a definite return to Peter Bjorn And John's Pop roots. So the move to work with Per Sunding - a member of the now defunct Eggstone (a band that was once dubbed "the godfathers of Swedish pop") seemed especially fitting.

Five stars, one of the best CDs so far this year.
Neil Harris
It's getting lots of play time -- right up there with his Vampire Weekend CDs.
Paula Martin
That song was a major surprise - darn it is good.

Writer's Block was a great record, full of hooky rock tunes like Young Folks (the whistling chorus went viral overnight). This record is a return to form after some more mellow discs. There's not a weak song here. The band's roots are showing with riffs lifted from Archie Bell & the Drells classic "Tighten Up" on Dig a Little Deeper, just to mention one of the more obvious homages.

The first single, "Second Chance" is made for heavy airplay. "(Don't Let Them) Cool Off" is a hard charging 80's-ish arena rocker that has to sound great live -- it's in parts punky, REM-ish, and pure PB&J fun. "Black Book" starts off like a White Stripes outtake but late in the track it rocks harder and harder.

There is a lot more guitar up-front on this record than in past efforts and it has a great sound. It's as if REM moved to Sweden and got good again.

Five stars, one of the best CDs so far this year. If you like your rock with jangly guitars and hooky melodies, check out this great disc from Peter Bjorn & John.

i purchased this on vinyl and it is the worst sounding record in my collection. Everything sounds muffled and muddy. Highly, highly disappointed. It even came with a CD that sounds just as bad. It's obvious that the dynamic compression on both the Cd and Vinyl were cranked up. If I were to buy it again I'd save a ton of money and buy the MP3 download. I suggest you do the same. It's too bad, the music itself is great.

Format: Audio CD
Peter Bjorn and John shot to indie-critical claim out of nowhere in 2006 with their 3rd album "Writer's Block", which truly was an instant-classic album, containing so many memorable tracks. The band toured crazily behind it and then took its time to come back with new studio material. There was the side/interim-release of "Seaside Rock", which then was followed in 2009 with "Living Thing", a decidedly much darker album than anything before from the Swedes. Not surprisingly, the album fell mostly on deaf ears here in the US. Now comes the band's 6th album.

"Gimme Some" (11 tracks, 37 min.) kicks off with "Tomorrow Has to Wait", one of the few tentative tunes on here. But after that things pick up and things feel differently from the "Living Thing" album. The energy seems back and the vibration is positive. "Dig a Little Deeper" feels like it could be a radio single, but wait, there's more of that! "Second Chance" is en equally upbeat can't miss sing-along, and is certainly the most infectious tune from the Swedes since "Young Folks" on the "Writer's Block" album. "Breaker Breaker" is a 1'39" rock and roll romp, just great. "May Seem Macabre" takes its time to develop but pays off, with great underlying drums. And so it goes, the album goes non-stop from up-tempo track to hum-along track, and in fact there is only one slow song on here ("Down Like Me") that almost seems out of place on the album. But it all culminates into the closer "I Know You Don't Love Me", which is the "Up Against the Wall" equivalent from "Writer's Block", a long but irresistible song that brings it all back home.

In all, I can't emphasize enough how pleased and surprised (in a very good way) I am with this album, which, there is no denying it, is a return to the sunnier side of the Swedes. At 37 min.

This is a fantastic CD release by the talented Swedish indie pop trio Peter Bjorn & John, titled 'Gimme Some'. The band has reportedly sought out the services of an independant producer for the first time in this album. The result is a well crafted CD, rich in melodies, choruses & harmonies. With the solid tracks/gems "Dig A Little Deeper" (a racy-tempo, wonderful melody & harmonies) & "Eyes" (beautiful guitar improvisation/syncopation plus great drums), they deserve more than three thumbs up for their efforts! Great tracks in this album include "Tomorrow Has To Wait" (great opening track), "Second Chance", "Breaker Breaker" (great drum/guitar combination), "May Seem Macabre", "Down Like Me" (a slow track with great guitar/bass/vocal combination), "Lies" & "I Know You Don't Love Me". Okay tracks include "(Don't Let Them) Cool Off" & the rather 'noisy' "Black Book". On overall, this is a well crafted CD release, deserving a great applause, a highly recommended CD listening.

My sincere apologies to Peter Bjorn (an excellent musician) and John fans, this album has one of my favorite songs on it - Second Chance. It turns out that song is the theme to the television show Two Broke Girls. That song was a major surprise - darn it is good.

After listening to the previews to the other songs on this album, I decided to buy three more: (Don't Let Them) Cool Off, Down Like Me, and Lies. Well those are great downloads. I like the alternative sound. There is some darn good guitar playing on these tracks.

The best part of these four songs - the recordings is a little bit dirty or edgy, not perfectly produced and performed studio plastic. I like my music with a bit of imperfection.

I go back and forth between Writer's Block and Gimme Some, not knowing which CD to listen to. Both albums by Peter Bjorn and John absorb my attention, but I will comment on Gimme Some because my expectations for this album were not high. I was wrong. This band just keeps chugging along despite the many obstacles they face together or as individuals. An entire range of feeling is expressed in tightly woven lyrics and guitar riffs. This is the kind of music that you can keep a beat with. Or it can make you hang your head in sadness, jump about and shout, or think about one's soul in the afterlife. All of these feeling are here.
I don't know, but somehow I suspect that some of the lyrics are about Victoria Bergsman. I think there was a "passing of ships" and then a "parting of ways." The "meeting in the middle" gave us Young Folks which almost everyone knows. Well, it seems to me that the band has moved on and grown stronger. Peter Bjorn and John have produced a beautiful blend of songs that keep an infectious beat. It is also music that keeps me guessing.
