Citizen K - King of second thoughts

Citizen K - King of second thoughts (2013) Paraply Records
Produced by Klas Qvist / Tobias Walka
Tracks : 1.King of second thoughts 2.So this is life 3.Something truly magic
3 out of 5

Klas Qvist aka Citizen K released the very strong "Somewhere up north" album in 2009 and I really loved it, this fall he´s returning with the double album "Second thoughts" and the first taste is the 3 track "King of second thoughts" EP. Citizen K still deliver 70´s soft rock with a touch of Beach Boys-like harmony vocals on these three new tracks but I only think 2 songs hold the same standard as the previous album. The title track and "So this is life" are both really good while the more laid back "Something truly magic" don´t move me at all, the heavy guitars on "So this is life" are right on spot and even if Klas ain´t a perfect lead singer - he is amazing at making beautiful harmonies. For fans of Eagles, Doobie Brothers, Sad Cafe´
