On Isola, their third album, Kent have really gone down in the melancholic swamp, and you could easily describe them as a cheap copy of Radiohead. Strangely enough, the first single to be taken from the album, "Om Du Var Har," is the album's only up-tempo track. But despite this fact, the album sold in massive amounts in Sweden, and suddenly, the fans had forgotten about Kent's faster past. The album starts with "Livraddaren," one of the few good slow songs on this album, with a guitar riff that's really clever, but after that the songs just get slower and slower.
