5 stars What an amazing little gem of an album this is, these guys only released one album unfortunately but like true europeans they are efficient and extremely effective.

The album is entirely instrumental and invokes a gamut of different emotions and atmospheres very effectively, the album starts off with elisabaten, cheerfully upbeat and hopeful, with lots of wonderful little nuances along the way, it then takes a turn into a sombre emotional tune - very impressive song writing skills are evident from the title track.

På Gata is the epic on the album is a definate highlight showcasing all the bands brilliance, from the upbeat an jazzy to the cheeky to the sombre to the defiant, it's really amazing how in looking back the song takes you to so many different places.

The beatiful title track is another highlight - a soft number with some great sounding synth and a very nice musical motif, extremely listenable.

The album is chock full of good music it covers so much territory in such a short time, I actually found I didn't really notice how technically gifted the musicians were at all because I am so engrossed in the music and it's journey - a very rare achievement. Highly recommended for fans of instrumental, symphonic and scandanavian prog such as anglagard, kaipa and camel.
