AmazingAdrian So back when New Retro Wave was new, Sam Haggblad sailed into the scene on the strength of this album; one of the first to have vocals. This made it hot at the time, as virtually no one in New Retro was performing vocals for their highly produced synthesizer tracks. Listening to it today however shows the album to be almost painfully deficient in polish; melodies are good but lines and passages repeat way more often than they should, making some tracks sound straight-up annoying after a while. Favorite track: Sam's Theme.

Johanna Would Like To Thank:

I wanna thank all of my fans and friends for the continued love and support over all the years. Many thanks to my best friend Emma Lindahl. She has always been by my side and supported me in all situations. Without Emma, I had not been complete. I love you girl!
Emma Lindahl was also our photographer for this demo! I want to thank my family. Birgitta Liljegren, Freddie Liljegren and Lars Liljegren.
Uncles: Per Daniel Liljegren, Mats-Olof Liljegren and HÂkan Liljegren.
Stepfather: Sune Enhorn They support me when I need them, and are probably the most gracious people you can find. I love you all. Thanks for letting me grow up in a family full of musicians! I want to thank all the teachers that I had in singing all these years. It has been very educational and a lot of lovely moments. I will never forget you.
Thanks Stefan Berglund, Kerstin Moll, Roine Tharander, Elsmarie Hallqvist, Birgitta Johnson, Caroline-Ericsson Welin and obviously Bjˆrn Johansson.

With Love // Johanna Liljegren, Sam Häggblad
