1 stars This review unlike my others will be short, because I have not many words to say about this terrible album.

Träd Gräs Och Stenar are a Swedish psychedelic rock band from the late sixties. I knew that this album did not have any ratings and decided that it would be a good thing to buy it and review. Well I regret paying 2 dollars for it in the bargain bin. This album is the epitome of terrible, not only due to the amazingly disgusting sound quality, but also due to the fact that the songs on the A-side are jams that not only utilize boring chord sequences (The Am-C-Bb-C chord pattern on All Along The Watchtower gets a bit boring after 4 minutes. Well it lasts 8 here!) and the songs on the B-side are studio jokes that go on forever without lasting more than 5-6 minutes tops.

'All Along The Watchtower' is the best song here, and would be the only reason to listen. But the crappy quality of the sound drags it down with the rest of the songs, and the microphone for the singer isn't adjusted right either. You can barely hear the vocals. Now, the song might had been good had it been 3-4 minutes in length. But it drags for 8 minutes with a 6 minute guitar solo that is so extremely boring you'll most likely find yourself skipping the track without hearing it fully once. I love long guitar soli (Willie The Pimp is 8 minute long and really stuns me) but this one is a major failure.

The same goes for the second song. And the B-side is more like a 15 minute joke than anything.

Overall, a really dissapointing album. I'm usually very generous when giving ratings, and often overrate a lot of albums, but this one is truly one of the worst albums I have ever heard. I do not recommend you to buy this, as it has nothing going for it. There is no progressive in this, and there's nothing spacey about it either. It's a garage-esque jam CD that never goes anywhere. Ugh.
