What they say

Era da tempo che non ascoltavo un disco di psichedelia ed è stata una vera sorpresa incontrare gli AqPop con il loro bellissimo disco. Bentornata psichedelia! - Rock Impressions (Italy)

...folky de Have It que hace pensar en que la cuestión es tener o no tener. AQPOP tienen lo que hay que tener. - Feedback Zine (Spain)

What makes this CD more than just another indie rock afterthought is the fact that AqPop writes damn good songs." .. "Beautifully Smart, She's Standing There is a sweet folky-pop thing that makes me think indie rock Byrds and Big Star with fantastic boy/girl harmonies." - Foxy Digitalis (USA)

"This brilliant debut full length album by Trondheim, Norway band AqPop meets and exceeds any rational or irrational expectations." - Dream Magazine (USA)

"a rewarding debut that more than fulfills their early promise and yet more evidence that Norwegian rock is so much more than foo-foo electronic cheese wiz from Bergen. Trondheim Rules!" - Fakejazz (USA)

"This is a strong and focused debut." - Luna Cafe

"Hadde det vært behov for en norsk hoffleverandør av sprek og bittersøt gitarpop med skjeve innslag så hadde AqPop vært et utmerket valg. Beautifully Smart er nemlig et kongelig stykke norsk psykedeliapop." - Panorama

"Om alle låter i hele verden kunne være like spretne og livsbejaende som Screen! Vi snakker to og et halvt minutt pop-perfeksjon" - Spot

"Solid låtskriverkunst i spennende arrangement krydret med kreative krumspring litt utenfor den sedvanlige popnormen, har resultert i en vital og helhetlig plate." - Adresseavisa

"Aqpop har bra låter, sans for humor, gode basslinjer, og nok variasjon i uttrykket til ikke å stivne i ett spor. De veksler mellom lange instrumentalpartier og korte, kontante poplåter, og også vekslingen mellom mannlig og kvinnelig vokal er vellykket." - Dagsavisen

"Albumets beste låt Syranid er en påminnelse om hvor steinbra Motorpsycho var på sitt mest monstrøse midt på forrige tiår. Låtens oppbyggelige stil, som til slutt ender i kaskader med støy, er rett og slett et hyggelig gjensyn med 90-tallet" - SKUM

"Melodiene står sentralt, og mange av dem er faktisk veldig gode."..."Mer enn lovende". -Monster
