East of the Sun, West of the Moon was a small surprise, too quickly destined for the cut-out bins considering the way a-ha finally went after Hunting High and Low. This is a nicely crafted collection of songs, performed and sung beautifully, with lots of echoes and suggestions tucked into the music. While not an album one can discuss at length, it's an album that's a pleasure to listen to and one that deserves a better reception than the one, unfortunately, that it seems to have gotten.

The name, production and sound of the album reflect the place in which this album fits in the band's anthology. Still strong are the rich 80's electric pop elements from previous albums. But, this album also captures a rising, more soulful sound with orchestral and vocal changes. It is an album for A-ha's middlife.
