Ballpen – [2010] The Dreams Trilogy

If that text blurb threw you off a bit – that was intentional. This album has the same effect on me. While it is clearly expertly crafted, the songs never seem to “start” for me. Yet, they make perfect backdrop material for me writing this very text, so apparently they do something right. And from the praise it has drawn back in 2010, not all can be pure hype, can it?

2. Ballpen – The Sea Dream

This sounds the result of a progressive rock band trying to write a laid-back lounge track.

11. Ballpen – The Bus Stop Dream

What would happen if you put the artists of French duo Air into a glockenspiel factory? Maybe this.
