…Writer's Block is the work of a band at the absolute peak of its writing and performing skill. It's hard to imagine Peter Bjorn and John getting better than this. Hopefully they will, but if not, they'll always have this album to call their masterpiece.
The beauty of the guitar is not necessarily based on advanced and highly technical playing skills. Happy takes very easy songs and shows how to transform them into beautiful showpieces using right-hand patterns, altered chords, harmonized scales and other basic but useful techniques.
