Album: The Whitest Boy Alive, Rules (Bubbles)
Reviewed by Andy Gill

On 2007's Dreams, the stripped-down lines and studied diffidence of the music seemed the perfect match for the mix of intellectual coolness and eagle-eyed observation in Erlend Oye's lyrics.
But where that album was sculpted in the studio with no thought of live performance, the songs on Rules were recorded live in one take, with no overdubs or effects: the resulting thinness of the sound leaves the material stranded and etiolated, like sea creatures dying on the tideline. Oye, best known for his solo work and as half of Kings of Convenience, is an accomplished cartographer of the human heart, but the skeletal settings of The Whitest Boy Alive aren't the best support for his songs. "It's a rollercoaster ride, a paralysing leap," he sings in "Rollercoaster Ride"; "It's better that we live in our own worlds, than on a bridge between the two that could never hold our weight." But the performance signally fails to convey that vertiginous risk: the song all but stalls, an impression that comes to define the album. The drumming is brisk and tidy, the guitars and keyboards neat, but ultimately they've trimmed away most of the elements that might make one want to hear this stuff again.
