Clash (magazine) - "The pace of the record shuffles without urgency, solidifying the band's flag planted in the legacy and sentimentality that's kept them adorned for over a decade. BREAKIN' POINT is a technicolour blur worth your time."
Audio Mixer: Lasse Marten.
Recording information: Church Studios, London; Ingrid Studios, Stockholm; The atlantic Studio, Stockholm.
In the five years since their last album, Gimme Some, the three members of Peter Bjorn and John were very busy. They started a record label, Ingrid, built their own studio, produced other artists, and each worked on solo projects. When they decided to get back together to make their seventh album, Breakin' Point, they turned to outside producers to help them get a modern pop sound. By calling in Patrik Berger, Paul Epworth, Greg Kurstin, and Emile Haynie, they availed themselves of the services of guys who had worked with artists as huge as Kanye West and Adele, as awesome as Robyn, and as far afield from their sound as Linkin Park. ~ Tim Sendra
