Editorial Reviews

Gentle Stream is widescreen, panoramic, horizon-reaching stuff. An elegantly constructed record of moody psychedelic majesty; it comes with a great dose of CSNY-style Laurel Canyon bliss. Its nine songs clock in at a luxurious 50 minutes, during which astral guitars intertwine in serpentine solos, horns blast rainbow melodies, and Gunrup's flute-like voice floats elegantly over the sunset sounds.



Completing the line-up with Fredrik Swahn, Alexis Benson, Johan Holmegard, and highly rated jazz drummer Moussa Fadera, The Amazing recorded their LP in Stockholm, Sweden, and plotted their path in this incredible unison. There are countless stories to be told, including playing a show for the Swedish Royal Family and Pink Floyd, where audience member Roger Waters appreciatively caught a bouquet thrown by the band during a standing ovation. This mysterious band holds one principle dear to their hearts: "The music speaks for itself".

I can't believe I am the first to post a review on this great album! I bought it on the strength of a magazine review and have not been disappointed.

It's a set of long, sumptuous songs which gradually course through a series of lovely time shifts and nervy emotional lifts..

It's like Crazy Horse meets Cat Stevens.. and then, it's like David Crosby meets Tangerine Dream on a summer afternoon in 1973.

I deduct one star because the mastering seems a little thin for what The Amazing are trying to achieve. I played it alongside some other recent releases and it's a bit wanting. Then again, I suppose this is what happens when innovative, reaching music is made on a lower, indie budget (if this is indeed the case-- I'm only surmising). I guess I'll just have to turn it up!

Pleasant stuff. They're not too lo-fi, but an even cleaner sound would suit me fine. Perhaps I'm trying to overlay Crosby's Laughing / Cowbow Movie too much or expect a Real Estate clone or something. One reviewer noted the Grateful Dead Mind Left Body Jam outtro on Flashlight!

Too bad there's no previews at this site.

The Amazing is one of those bands whose music is totally fresh, yet feels like music you've heard all your life. Great melodies, fabulous rhythm via the drums and bass, and wonderful cascading guitar riffs. Bits of it do remind me of CSN and America from their first album, the guitars sounds, especially when on one of those long floating riffs. The music has and enchanted ethereal quality to it, without being pretentious. Kind of a Moody Blues dreamy sound? Theres just enough of of each element. I do find the production to be a bit dense at times. Best heard on a high quality system that opens up the playing. All in all, one of my favorite finds of the past couple of years.

This album is insanely brilliant in many ways. Words really cant capture it all, if you a fan of good well played music you will enjoy this album. Also do yourself a favor and see Dungen live if you ever get a chance.

I recently heard Gentle Stream (the titular song) on KUTX here in Austin and thought to myself "Huh, that's a good song." So I decided to purchase this album.

The sound is a blend of timeless, jam bandy, chill wave that washes over you, cleansing your tarnished aura. If you enjoy groups like My Education (local Austin band) or Explosions in the Sky and the addition of lyrics, you'll really love The Amazing. They're the next biggest thing to come out of Sweden since Minecraft.

Do yourself a favor, give it a listen.

What a great band! Very talented musicians with an etherial sound which I normally don't prefer. Maybe all the long hours of darkness in Scandinavia assist in honing the perfection of their abilities to play a variety of instruments few master. Well worth paying a new album price!

So relaxing yet stimulating listening to this album. Getting a blessed chance to see these guys in America tonight!

Tracks that really stand out for me are the title track, International Hair, Dogs, and When The Colours Change.

Shame I had to wait almost 6 months to get these beautiful sounds in the US.

Incredibly textured and swirling album that brings to mind 70's pop and prog rock. Think Bread and/or Todd Rundgren meet Explosions in the Sky. If any one of those three appeal to you, you will probably enjoy The Amazing.
