The Ackermans is a Swedish band combining pop/retro/punk into a mischmasch of styles. The Hives goes Sparks? Strokes goes Jellyfish? White Stripes goes American Drag? Well, somewhere around these artists you have the sound of the band and it?s quite a pleasant surprise. The energy is cool and refreshing and I can imagine the band live. They must be a helluva liveact for sure. The album is a little ?to the same? all through, and after the half album you start to loose focus over the tunes. Still a good album you should check out if you like the bands I mentioned earlier.
