Several of Britain's notoriously fussy music magazines praised The Confusions. Melody Maker put them above Ocean Colour Scene and other domestic bands, Record Collector called the album a "wondrous debut", while Dis-Connected said they deserved to be "bigger than ABBA". That album was followed up by "Six-0-Seven", once again produced by Peter Svensson of the Cardigans. The songs are about the usual hang-ups that haunt young life: love, repressed emotions, jealousy and hope. Their "Trampoline" is an outstanding album. It features the stunning single "The Pilot", which hit number one on MTV's Up North chart and the song got a lot of attention from outside Scandinavia.
The album was released in Japan, Taiwan and "The Pilot" was released in France. The Evening Telegraph wrote "Add these guys to the list of superb Swedish bands. They Borrow from the past (60s Britpop, Bowie) without the self consciousness of their Anglo Saxon peers". The Confusions are great fun, but thoughtful at the same time.
