The sad news that a-ha have decided to throw in the towel after the completion of their current tour is offset by the release of one the greatest albums they've ever produced. I have been a fan of theirs since '86 and though they have released some great and not so great albums this one stands out among the pack. Foot Of The Mountain equals what I consider to be their best album ever...Scoundrel Days. Every song is amazing but it does take a bit of time to get into everything. I have listened to few other albums since its release.
The standout tracks for me are Riding The Crest, Foot Of The Mountain, Mother Nature Goes To Heaven and, oddly enough, Start The Simulator. Others reviewing this album may disagree with my last choice. It's a mesmerizing track and the perfect closer for this album. I can't recommend this album enough if you are a fan of their work. Few bands can say that their 'curtain call' album was as amazing as this one and I hope they recondsider their decision down the road.
