3 stars This record is more folksy then their break through follow up "Ta Det Lugnt". It doesn't have that same edge to it, and Reine Fiske's great guitar work is less evident. I really like this record, especially the first half.

"Stradvandringar" is such an addicting song, the kind that will play in your head long after the record is over. It's light, fun and catchy and can change a mood very quickly. "Har Du Vart I Stockholm ?" is great ! With mellotron throughout and it's also a real toe tapper. "Solen Stiger Upp 1&2" is the third good one in a row. Some beautiful flute melodies in this one and the drums are more out in front. The guitar comes and goes."Over Stock Och Sten" is more uptempo and the organ is a nice touch later in the song. This is a nice warm flowing song.

"Sol Och Regn" is an instrumental with violin that is joined by flute creating a folksy feel, some atmospheric guitar to end it. "Fest" is a little more abrasive as drums and vocals are more emphatic. Violin is in the background and it all ends with a bombastic sing a long. "Natten Blir Dag" is a mellow tune with keys and organ. Good song. "Andra Sidan Sjon" is a tasteful song with guitar in the background. Flute to end it. "Stradsvandring" is a short reprise of opening song. "Vem Vaktar Lejonen" has a 60's sounding rhythm section. Some powerful guitar and organ. "Krona" is an instrumental with light drums and guitar.

I wouldn't be surprised if there are those who would prefer this one to "Ta Det Lugnt". There is a lot to like about this one but I feel it's not quite as good, but still recommended.
