5 stars Panzerpappa is one of the finest RIO/Avant bands out there currently, these guys have strong influences from bands like Univers Zero and Samla Mammas Manna, and together with the band's amazing musicianship there's no doubt that these guys are something to really check out. The music can best be described as modern Symphonic RIO with very eclectic instrumentation. This album, the band's third release "Farlig Vandring", is just like that. This stuff is extremely complex, very progressive and avoids the "repeating ourselves" trap (something that many other bands have failed) with elegance; It's very fresh sounding and original with other words, and the melodies are excellent. It's really hard to pick out a favorite track here since the album is quite even overall, except for a few very experimental improv sections here and there but that will most likely grow on you. As I said earlier, the musicianship is amazing; every band member is masters of their instruments and the instruments never overshadows themselves plus that there isn't any showcasing from the band here though the music remains mind-boggingly complex. Really great stuff overall!

While their two first releases "...passer gullfisk" and "Hulemysteriet" are out of print (they were only released as CD-r's actually), "Farlig Vandring" is the first Panzerpappa album to be released on a real record label. Still, it's very hard to find sue to it's low distrubution, but if you are a lover of this genre and find this one, then definitely pick it up. Highly recommended, especially for RIO/Avant fans!

Bj-1 | 5/5 |
