Hark, my friends! We're going back to Sweden for this post--as you know, I'm a big fan of Nordic Rock. Today, I want to tell you about The Ark.

The Ark is basically a glam-rock group, that creates addicting 80's pop-hooks with heavy use of the falsetto. Their most recent release The State of the Ark dates back to 2004, but I don't care--I still want to tell my readers about it. The State of the Ark is pure fun. Whether its the whistling and percussions on "Hey Kwanongoma!" or the delectable chorus on the Billy-Joel-like "One of us is Gonna Die Young", The Ark exudes fun and they make that clear on nearly every track. Other highlights include "This Piece of Poetry is Meant to do Harm", whose Stereo-Mcs-like beginning explodes into an amazing song--if only for the title, this song is awesome.

Definitely check out The Ark.
Listen to "Hey Kwanongoma!".
Listen to "Rock City Wankers".
