Bjørn Riis’ second solo album surprised me. Twice. Only being familiar with his work as the guitarist for Airbag, I was expecting scenic guitars punctuated with melodic, emotional solos. Forever Comes to an End instead opens with an attack of guitars and drums – still emotional, but heavy and distorted. It grabbed me hard, right away. My first expectation gave way to my second – that this would be an album where Riis gets to throw off the familiar trappings of his playing, and explore heavier riffs. That’s where I was surprised again. Light on lyrics, heavy on atmosphere; Forever Comes to an End delivers an emotional story through music. Don’t expect a display of technical wizardry or guitar acrobatics or catchy tunes: Instead find a cohesive, gorgeously crafted story; with few words, little excess, and so much depth. €1. 9. Forever Comes to an End quantity. Lyrically, the album deals with broken relationships and loss and the emotional duality between resentment and forgiving. The melodic and sombre voice of Steven Wilson and Tim Bowness and the cinematic landscapes of composers like Thomas Newman and John Barry
