About this album

“Give Me Fire” is the latest Mando Diao album (published in February 2009).
The lyrics were written by Gustaf Norén and Björn Dixgård, the singers and guitarists of Mando Diao. Then without any outside influences the whole band set the lyrics to music.
Like in every album in “Give Me Fire” the band recreated itself, but still in their individual, typical Mandostyle. It sounds like coming right from the sixties. Partly consciously and partly unconsciously they added elements of Latin, Soul, Disco and Retro to their normal Garage-Indie-Rocksound.

Characteristically for “Give Me Fire” is the difference between all tracks, which still follow a well considered common conception. This makes listening to the sounds of this album like watching a sweeping motion picture.
Mando Diao focused a lot on the musical version. The backing vocals are often sung by women and extraordinary instruments like violins, trumpets and harmonicas are supporting the booming bass. But in some songs, “Crystal” for example, they work with about 8 guitars.
It is surely worth it listening to the igneous sounds of “Give Me Fire”, so come on come on, put your high heels on and buy this record.

    I like the fact that dance with somebody and this album gave mando diao the mainstream sucess that they deserved and, although give me fire is very good, it's not even one of their best albuns, so If you're a new fan, I recommend that you listen to their others works such as ode to ochrasy or never seen the light of day... : )

    At first I thought it didn't really have a lot more to offer than the first three tracks. I'm going to a Mando Diao concert tomorrow and I listened it again. I have to say, this album is great. I don't know why it didn't really 'click' at first. I like most of the songs now, maybe all of them.
