Logh filters the finest elements of indie rock, poetic tone and intelligible songwriting through a Nordic perspective and into a record that pulses, swells and sighs with effortless synergy. Without ever leaving the grips of simple pop, Every Time A Bell Rings An Angel Gets His Wings flirts with lo-fi elements - lightly brushed snares, subtle guitar strumming, droning bass lines and wispy, aching vocals - but with more range, expression and genuine feeling than most bands can muster. Music laden with so much texture, atmosphere and emotion is rare. The stark sadness may be ghostly familiar as one of LOGH's greatest strengths is their ability to make their images sing. But as heavy as your heart may grow, the record uplifts you...not through eleven separate songs, but rather one intricate blueprint of earnest emotion. Incredibly well performed and overflowing with desperate beauty. Unreleased song "Guided Tour Of A Dead Man's House" on The Emo Diaries, Chapter Eight. (DER-418)

"Finding an album like Every Time a Bell Rings from Logh is a bittersweet experience for me; I am painfully aware that music this incredible doesn't come along very often. Logh are what Thom Yorke has always wanted to sound like. Across the eleven songs presented here, they weave gorgeous ambient production with modest melodies and tight, nimble musicianship that aches with emotion. Lyrically, Mattias Friberg possesses a fierce poetry. There's little more I can say to do an album like this justice. I'm left so full of emptiness after breathing in Logh that I have to remind myself that I exist. It really is that good." - Ink19

"If bands were economic arguments, Logh would be a vindication of Sweden's gargantuan government. But they're not, so Logh are just a great band. Most of Every Time A Bell Rings seems to emerge from a listless fog, like a punctuating afterthought. Mattias Friberg's vocals sound like human cello chords, at times even evoking a more dry-iced Cobain. Sparse and churchy, songs such as The Passage clinch an arresting, frigidly beautiful mood. This is full scale, frigorific Nordic under-rock." - DIW

"I have never heard of Logh before this review, but after listening to Everytime A Bell Rings, I hope that everyone hears about them. The are reminiscent of bands like Sigur Ros, Mogwai and Kings of Convenience. They are very Nordic in style with their soft, mellow vocals accompanied by long, similarly whimsical and expressive instrumental pieces. Their lyrics are simple, but at the same time deep and reflective. Logh exemplifies the perfect balance between vocal and instrumental parts, proving their intense ability to creatively structure a song. Another aspect of the album that is very worth noting is the distinctness of the songs. Each has its own respective style and adds to the flowing and graceful unfolding of the album. This should be listened to in pieces, but rather as part of one large collaboration of artful and expressive music. If you are a fan of mellow, reflective and emotional bands like Sigur Ros, than you should pick up a copy of Every Time A Bell Rings An Angel Gets His Wings." - Centerfuse
