4 stars I know that the first words in this review may cause "discussions", but it's the way i feel about this magnificent record... First and most important, the apparent naive attitude from the band toward the music is fantastic, the first time i heard this album i thought it was a joke, like a circus band walking down the streets of Sweden asking for a coin and having a good time... mixing, drama, jazz, improvisation, screams, rock, folk, whatever it might cross their minds: AWESOME!!! I know that this band is considered some sort of "sacred cow", and i know they've earned it, but more than just prog, is a perfect example of how to blend traditional music with modern stuff, well at least in the 70's. The record is treated like a whole system, making it a very easy listening beacuse of it's cohesion and congruence; i have to say that the long "ambient" passages create this almost classical feeling of writing music, taking care about little details of textures and "colors" in each piece, creating an aura of unexpected sounds, doing it an expirience from tip to toe. Beware, not a commercial or classic prog... just for the open minded. peace
