To put it bluntly, Lust For Youth's International is unrecognizable as a Lust For Youth record on first listen. Hannes Norrvide's previous solo albums under the Lust for Youth moniker have been described as "dark, cold, atonal, tormented, lonely, and lower than lo-fi." The approach on International has shifted dramatically. Norrvide's work has always had pop sensibilities buried deep in the reverb, but the hooks are front and center on International, and there is nothing lo-fi about it. International is Norrvide's magnum opus, and with Fisher's production and Rahbek's co-writing skills, the potential this band has always shown has been fully realized, it is a buoyant synth-pop masterpiece on par with early Depeche Mode.
