The ballad "Angel" was a huge hit in Sweden in 2010, the duo Broken Door had landed and wasn´t gonna leave. The following singles "Hey you" and "In the shadow" didn´t manage to score the same success but that didn´t stop the band from writing more songs and finally releasing the debut album "Time for changes". This duo featuring Tobias Östlund and Pier Schmid (DaBuzz), doesn´t take any chances and has recorded an album with comfy pop/rock songs, the title track is really good and I also dig the opener "Final destination" but the album feels too safe and very predictable. It´s like you´ve heard the choruses before, this is so mainstream that even mainstream music sound daring. Yes, I can hear the guitar in there somewhere in the mix but it should´ve been a helluva lot louder.
