Pieces fits the bill


I DON'T mean to pester you, but if you like mining the acceptable face of pop, then Erik Hassle has crafted a shiny nugget for you.
Because the flame-haired Swede's album Pieces, repackaged and renamed for release in the UK after Scandanavian success, is crammed with sweeping, epic pop songs.
Word-of-mouth success Hassle's vocals bear a resemblance to the soulful tones of Sam Sparro, with standout tunes such as Hurtful and Don't Bring Flowers straddling the work of Miike Snow and Mr Hudson - apart from the corny McFly-esque closer Amelia.
With Pieces, Erik Hassle should have no bother getting into the charts.
