From the Archives: Danish press has been taught by Vegas! (by crunchy.dk 21. October 2003)

Do you want to learn from Las Vegas?
Perhaps with a little help from their stripper or elf (or stripper-elf) from the cover of “Richard and Liz”, Learning from Las Vegas have finally lifted their music out of the basement and placed their songs on what surely sounds like what could be the record of the year.

Here is a little recap of some of the great reviews Learning from Las Vegas have received from the Danish press:

Jyllands-Posten – daily newspaper:
5 out of 6 stars
”Pragtfuld skramlet rock med masser af stof til eftertanke. Learning From Las Vegas, der efterhånden har eksisteret i 11 år, kan stadig. Opleves både tændte og motiverede på “Richard And Liz” og ridser dybt i den musikalske korrekthed og pænhed”
(”Splendid rattling rock with plenty of food for thought. Learning from Las Vegas, who have been around for 11 years, have still got it. They appear highly motivated on “Richard and Liz” and make deep scratches in the musical appropriateness and pleasantness”)

Ekstra Bladet – daily newspaper:
4 out of 6 stars
”KOMPETENT:[Richard and Liz red.]”Learning from Las Vegas tredje og hidtil bedste Album….”
(“COMPETENT: “Learning from Las Vegas’ third and so far best album”)

SIRENE – magazine for young women.
4 out of 6
”Hele albummet har en rar og meget fin lyd, og jeg er ret sikker på, at pladeselskabet Crunhcy Frog (der står bag succeser som Junior Senior, Superheroes og The Raveonettes) har ramt plet igen.”
(“The entire album has a pleasant and delicate sound to it and I’m pretty sure that the record label Crunchy Frog has once again hit the mark spot on”)

Gaffa – Music magazine
4 out of 6 stjerner
”… som på den fine forgænger Petit Bourgeois er Richard And Liz spækket med små finurlige sange om parforholdets op- og nedture, hvor deres blanding af pop og rock er svær at modstå” (…) ”Endnu et uimodståeligt album fra Learning from Las Vegas.”
(…like its excellent predecessor Petit Bourgeois Richard and Liz is packed with small atypical songs about the ups and downs of relationships, where their blend of pop and rock is hard to resist”(…)”Yet another irresistible album from Learning from Las Vegas.”

Berlinske Tidende – daily newspaper:
4 out of 6 stars
…med nærværende ”Richard and Liz” træder gruppen for alvor i karakter med en helt igennem helstøbt skrammelbunke af kantete popsange.”
“ with the present “Richard and Liz” the group step into character for real, with a thoroughly integrated junk pile of edgy pop songs.”

Information – daily newspaper:
…”det endelige resultat af al denne skamløse talentophobning er et af efterårets allerbedste danske album…”
…”the final result of all this shameless accumulation of talent is one of the autumns very best danish album…”
