Sooner or later, most bands worth their salt, make their definitive album. The one that takes them
to another level. The one that they just have to play to anyone who's around, because they're so
proud of it. The one that eliminates any doubt.
A Perfect World is that album.
'It does feel like an accomplishment', singer/lyricist Robert Pettersson attests. 'We've never had
this much fun, and I think everyone can hear that'.
Not that Takida are ashamed of their previous releases. Having formed 17 years ago, in the small
town of Ange in northern Sweden, they are already one of Scandinavia's biggest selling rock acts
and concert draws. The band took their name from the character Gohei Takeda in the Japanese
anime series Nagarebishi Gin. 2006 saw the release of their first album '...Make You Breathe'.
Their big breakthrough came a year later with the major hit single 'Curly Sue', and since 2009 the band always has headliner status in their native Sweden, selling out clubs, theatres and arenas, packed with their devoted and passionate Scandinavian fanbase.
In 2014, Takida had released five studio albums and one greatest hits compilation. They had also
performed successful co-headlining club tours around Europe. But somehow they felt that that
their definitive album had not yet seen the light of day. The fact that 'A Perfect World' self-
assuredly towers above all their previous efforts, confirms that this was the case.
Looking back, it's probably good that Takida's international break-through didn't arrive five or ten
'Now we're ready', Robert Pettersson says:
He sounds like he means it. And anyone who listens to 'A Perfect World' will understand why.
