It’s great to hear an established band just getting it right and delivering what they are best at. Even better when the songs and the production continue to increase in quality as is the case with the new Miss Behaviour album.
Double Agent is the band’s 3rd album and sees them going from strength to strength. Of the three releases, this is probably their first that demands to be bought on the strength of the songs.
That’s a good thing…there’s still a couple of tunes here I’m not sold on, but on the flip side, there are a few songs that having heard, I now just can’t live without.
The Swedish AOR/melodic rock outfit delivers a slightly quirky slice of 80s AOR mixed with some glam and melodic rock. It’s a pretty diverse selection of songs.
On With The Show is a strong melodic rock opening track. Makes a strong statement for the album ahead. But Double Agent is pure synth/AOR magic. A moody verse and a killer chorus…perfection!
Then you have some strong 80s melodic rock with Cold Response, Midnight Runner and a big anthemic ballad with Corporation Arms. Another of the band’s best tracks to date.
The band delivers their quirky side on the rocker Love Reflector before turning hard rock for the moody, heavy Edge Of The World.
Then it’s a 180 degree switch to another slice of AOR perfection with the brilliant Don't Let It End.
The melodic rocker The Cause Of Liberty runs nearly 8 minutes and takes a few listens to click, but it works.
I’m not feeling the love as much for Magical Feeling or Dancing With Danger, but the ballad Silver Rain is good value.
Once again I point out positive growth from an artist, meaning their best is hopefully still to come.
A few wonderful AOR tracks here and some quirky side-steps to prevent repetition and help continue their own style.
A quality record that should be examined by the majority of fans of the European AOR/melodic rock genre.

The story of Miss Behaviour goes back to 2004. Keyboard player Henrik Sproge and guitarist Erik Heikne were both studying Music Management at the Baltic Business School in Kalmar, Sweden, when the idea of Miss Behaviour first came up. With a great passion for 80's melodic hard rock and AOR, they decided to start the band to express their vision of how a modern rock band, inspired by the great bands of the eighties should sound.
The first Miss Behaviour songs where written in a student apartment in Kalmar in late 2004 and ended up at the 3-song EP Give us the world. Miss Behavior worked and still do with producer/technician Daniel Gese who had a career as drummer/producer with his 80's metal/sleaze band Pole Position in the late 80s/early 90s.

After the debut album Heart of Midwinter was released in 2006, Henrik and Erik decided to recruit the new lead singer Sebastian Roos, a quite well known singer in Sweden, with a lot of touring, TV and radio performances and Eurovision song contest on his CV. The breakthrough came with the Album Last Woman Standing, released in 2011.

In spring 2011 Miss Behaviour competed in Swedish national radio with the song Till we meet again, making the premi're live performance with the current lineup in front of 400000 radio listeners. Joining forces with former Backyard Babies manager Michael Sund'n in 2011 the band hit the roads in the UK. 

Late 2011, after touring the UK with CrashDiet, the album Last Woman Standing won the Melodic.net 'Best AoR album of 2011' readers poll with 23% of the votes, leaving bands like Journey, Robin Beck, Work of Art and more behind. The reviews were fantastic and the album got top scores in important magazines, such as Classic Rock (UK), Sweden Rock Magazine (Sweden) and more.

UK Magazine Classic Rock picked Cynthia as one of the best tracks in 2011, and featured the song on the compilation Classic Rock Buzz. Miss Behaviour returned to the UK on the Smokehead Rocks Tour, playing another 10 dates and finished the tour with a sold out show at O2 Islington Academy in London, Oktober 12, 2011. In the middle of the song writing and recordings of the new album Michael Sund'n tragically passed, in a horrible accident at venue Rock City, Nottingham. This loss took a while to recover from but finally the brand new album Double Agent  is finished and the band are more eager than ever to write the next chapter in their career.

Double Agent is produced by Daniel Gese and co-produced by Erik Heikne, Henrik Sproge and Sebastian Roos. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered in Studio L'rkbacken and Realtime Recording Studios, Norrk'ping, Sweden. String sessions are recorded and arranged by Ronnie Roos.
