2 out of 5
They´re called Stockholm but they are hardly from Stockholm, Sweden but instead Orlando, Florida. If you don´t know which sound you should focus on, just make trendy music and hope that someone will dig your songs. That is, if you have a bunch of great songs lined up but Stockholm forgot all about this important fact. To me, they sound like a 2nd division Coldplay/The Killers where I cannot seperate one song from another. They all soundalike and I get bored halfway through the album, mediocre is a word that comes to mind while listening to songs like "Runaway" and "Wildfire". There are a couple of songs that saves this album from sinking totally and they are "Don´t stop now" and "This love", pretty good in fact.
Next time you make a record, try to write songs that aren´t in the same key all the time.
