In 2001 the band got together with producer Johan Forsman. Weeping Willows wanted to change the musical aim to a more ”modern sound”. The retro thing was stripped down and the melodies were backed with the aid of synthesizers instead of strings and horns. The band was very inspired and the third album (”Into The Light”) was their biggest success so far. The big hit was "Touch Me". It was one of the major hits in Sweden 2002.
Opening song and hit single (at least in their home country) "Touch Me," with its driving rhythm and catchy chorus, is by far the catchiest of the lot, while the hopeful, simplistic beauty of "You're Happy Now" and "If I Could See You One More Time" are by far the most moving. However, amidst all of the pop mastery lies a certain affinity towards replicating the success of their fellow countrymen, the much more well known Kent, on tracks like "Somewhere". Singer Magnus Carlsson still croons in that Morrissey-meets-Sinatra drawl that makes his seemingly trite lyrical sentiments seem like great works of poetry, the guitars often switch between jangly, slovenly strums to ringing, Radiohead-ish arpeggios, and the keyboards and synths are given much more prominence in the mix, providing a lush backdrop. ~ Review by Alec A.
