Prog Reviewer
3 stars Not really as disciplined as an orthodox zeuhl album should be, Kultivator like to rock out with shorter songs which pay out in groove and feeling immediately rather than building anticipation for greater potential highs, prefer their vocals to be closer to angelic than to alien and seem to take as much influence from psyche and folk as from jazz - previous reviewers have suggested that this is merely jazz rock, but given that Barndomens Stigar features Rhodes playing in unusual meters, sci-fi chord changes, militant drumming heavy with insistent snare-play and distinctly Kobaian melodies and bass lines, I see no harm in including them under the most celestial of banners.

Three stars for being an impressive set of songs and a new interpretation of zeuhl (particularly on the track "Kära Jord") from a country you wouldn't associate with the microgenre; no more because of a certain lack of depth, at times.
