Review Tuesday: Queen of the Clouds by Tove Lo

When holiday season was approaching I had my radar working overtime trying to detect anything that Mrs. Bax0jayz would say she liked. She mentioned this singer one night.

Queen of the Clouds
Ebba Tove Elsa Nilsson, aka Tove Lo, is a Swedish singer from Stockholm. She has a lovely voice and did well on the top 40 charts with her hit HABITS (STAY HIGH) last year along with (We could be) HEROES by Alesso. The former song is NOT on this album, but was mentioned just to spark another memory of her voice.

The album is largely good. Tove's voice is delicious and sensuous. Some of the songs could fall into the category of modern rock, which is a bonus over today's brainless pop offerings. Well produced and nicely polished. The only song I didn't like was "Like Em Young." That was the one pure pop track and it annoyed me despite being a freakishly catchy tune.

I'd recommend it.
