Eeeeeeeviiiiig piiiint!

After going to two nearly-identical concerts by Kaizers Orchestra on two different tours six months apart, I was a bit concerned that their second album, Evig Pint would also be a repeat of their first. Instead, we get a record that, while still resting heavily on the mid-tempo, 2-beat tunes with punky energy and gipsy gangster-themed lyrics in Norwegian, is a lot more mature. Compared to the first album, it's darker, but without losing its humorous touches. The tunes are still instantly hummable, even if you don't know the language, and there is a bit more adventure in the instrumentation (not that the first album was lacking in that). Highly recommended.
