On his first solo album, THE LAST TYCOON, Peter Moren of the lauded Swedish indie-rock trio Peter Bjorn and John unveils a laid-back folk-influenced set. These 10 spare tracks provide an excellent showcase for the singer/guitarist's slightly raspy, John Lennon-like vocals and subdued yet assured songcraft, as best revealed on the wistful "Tell Me in Time" and the plaintive "Social Competence." Though some PB&J fans may miss the band's tight, punchy sound, that's exactly the point of THE LAST TYCOON: it's a chance for Moren to explore the "quiet is the new loud" credo set forth by fellow Scandinavians Kings of Convenience, and he rises to the task with wonderfully low-key verve.
Spin (p.102) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Moren's low-key solo debut is long on baritone vocals, folk-rock guitar strums and lonely piano plinks."
CMJ - "THE LAST TYCOON proves to be a folksy watershed in Moren's predominately pop-centric career, reminding us that life ebbs and flows with hardships and heydays."
Q (Magazine) (p.146) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Moren's debut solo effort is a low-key, stripped-back affair....Done fetchingly."
Paste (magazine) (p.67) - "Moren plays the coffeehouse folkie on his solo debut, modeling his phrasing on Dylan and his songwriting on The Byrds' Gene Clark."
Clash (magazine) (p.116) - "THE LAST TYCOON is a slice of classic songwriting...bringing his keenly honed skills into play."
