Melodifestivalen-2011 finalist Brolle has become one of Sommarkrysset guests this week, Swedish reincarnation of Elvis was going long road to schlager and schlager has accepted Brolle and his song "7 Days And 7 Nights".
Like all schlager-finalists Brolle hasn't missed a chance to release new stuff after the contest and his album "Burned By Fire" has become his best charted one (#4). After Elvis-overdose in "7 Days And 7 Nights" I was afraid I won't be able to be unbiased to this album quite long (though I really like some of previous Brolle's pop-rock songs). However today I've made me sit and listen to this disc in its full length. And you know "Burned By Fire" has become quite strong compillation of The Cure's melodic rock ("Shotgun"), Andreas Johnson's catchy guitar pop ("Sweet Josephine"), summerish acoustic-based tracks ("Lover's Battlefield", "Since You've Been Gone") and 60s inspired rock'n'roll ("Inch Of You", "Anything She Wants"). One of album's highlights is track "Burned By Fire" that sounds so much like Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" that you can't smile listening to but along with another ballad "Johnny Cash" they made some especially precious and aesthetically beautiful part of the album.
You can check Brolle's performance below together with Kikki getting schlager-veterans Jessica Marberger and Caroline Jönsson behind and foreign guests Jedward.
