The Soundtrack Of Our Lives – Origin (Phase 1)

Swedish psych-rockers return

Trending Now

In early 2002, TSOOL’s Grammy-nominated Behind The Music should have put the six-piece on a commercial footing with The Strokes and White Stripes, but their blend of slashing riffs and nimble, flowing psychedelia was perhaps too subtle. This fourth album offers a slightly simplified version, stripping back the riffs and stepping up the anthemics. Their pastoral side is still here (“Midnight”), but no longer dampens their overall attack. Majestic, life-affirming and touched by magic, right now TSOOL sound like they’re on top of the world.
