A good friend of mine recently recommended me to check out the new A-Ha album Cast in Steel because he thought the music was a bit reminiscent of Blume (one of my favorite synthpop bands of all time). Fortunately I was able to find the album on Spotify. Cast in Steel is a fantastic synthpop album. I have to admit I haven't listened to A-Ha since the '80s so I really can't compare their latest album to their previous albums in recent years. I do know I love this album. Whenever I listen to this album, I completely forget this is the same band that gave me "Take On Me". Forget everything you remember about the A-Ha of the '80s and check out their latest album. Cast In Steel is certainly one of the best releases of 2015.
