Jorn - Traveller (again)

Yet another album I didn't feel like listening to when it arrived. Now I've listened to it twice the last couple of days...and this is actually the first Jorn album I don't feel like giving the chance to grow on me.

I can barely listen to the whole album without skipping tracks and there's only one song that appeals to me which have a chance of ending up on a Jorn compilation disc (Make Your Engine Scream) in the future. As always the album is chock full of midtempo heavy tracks without hooks or memorable choruses.

It's really a carbon copy of his last couple of albums with his template backing vocals (the exact same harmonies in song after song, album after album), the same melodies in the same key/tone as usual.....etc.

It feels like something he could write and record in a couple of days. Something needs to change/happen for me to keep buying Jorn albums, I'm afraid, and going by what just about everyone else have said here, I'm certainly not alone in feeling like this.
