Peter, Bjorn And John's latest is an eerie opus and anyone expecting an hour of "Young Folks" styled vibes at The Metro last Thursday was in for a disappointment. Instead the trio delivered a masterful set of eerie ambiance and undeniable power. The group turned The Metro into a spooky subterranean cove, into an echo chamber, into a World Beat dance club turned on its head, and into a jubilant room practicing profanity laced sing-alongs. These Swedes proved that they've amassed a formidable amount of available musical weapons in their arsenal over the last decade they've been together, and they use each one masterfully and with great precision.
