White soul - don't ya just love it when it's done well! From Hall & Oates in one kingdom to Russ Taff in another it's all rifle shot snares, Hammond B3s, funky guitars and backing vocals steeped in attitude. Edin-Adahl, despite being Swedish, have continued in this vein and 'Into My Soul' is full of just that funky feelin'. As you might expect, it's all very "Taffy", but occasionally the ghost of Steely Dan comes wafting out of the speakers with echoes of those classic albums 'Pretzel Logic' and The Royal Scam1. Stand out tracks? Well, "T.M.B.", "One Big Family" and "Fire" are all groove filled room rattlers whilst "Falling" comes on all Al Green-like and will no doubt be sung in the shower all over Christendom. The only duff offering is "Like A Wind", which, I kid you not, sounds like the Swedish entry for the Eurovision Song Contest. (I think it was! Ed.) The whole album, whilst being quite safe, has "class" stamped all over it - a real "Danish Bacon" style stamp, sizzling and tasty!
