This is a continuation of my mini-series-within-a-series
I almost forgot to post my most important in the series! Here’s another album that I love dearly and will until the day that I die. I know it. My best friend showed me Erik Hassle back at the beginning of our senior year of high school and I have been infatuated ever since. He’s a Swedish artist and I sometimes miss out on hearing his new stuff because it’s just not broadcasted here. You can’t even see his new music on the American iTunes! I have to switch over to the Swedish iTunes just to listen to him!
Anywho, he had this one album that just tied my heart strings in a bow and never let go. It’s just called ‘Hassle’ and is from 2009. He has newer songs and albums but they didn’t stick to me as much as this whole entire album did. When I say whole I mean to every corner of these songs. Every single one. Perfect. I’ll list off my top favorites but it’ll be hard. They are all flawless. Favorites are ‘Hurtful’, ‘Bump in the Road’, ‘Wanna Be Loved’, ‘Bitter End’ and ‘Back to Bed’. Hell, all of them. I can’t even narrow it down.
You know when songs bring you back to a specific time in your life? See, I’ve experienced that to an extent but nothing like I have with this. I can remember exactly what I was doing and where when I began listening. When I realized that one really related to me. When I realized they all related to me. The album makes me cry every time I listen to it because of that.
I just don’t know. I can never see myself growing tired of this grouping. Impeccable songs by a truly unique artist.
