5 stars Samla Mammas Manna is most definitely one of the wildest bands ever, and probably one of the most unique as well.

Samla Mammas Manna is not the most avant-garde of them all, and not the least accessible. Not at all. Many songs on Klossa Knapitated are extremely catchy, melidious and fun to listen to. However, where many bands seem to strain themselves to break the rules of music, Samla Mammas Manna appears to exist in a world where no rules exist whatsoever, or one in which they make up the rules themselves and throw them about like candy paper bereft of it's sweet contents. There is a sense of easy-going in their music, as if they are a bunch of very capable musicians with very unique minds just having a lot of fun together in the studio. As if it all came naturally to them. And i find that to be rather unique in the more avant-garde end of progressive rock.

Still, the music is at times pretty challenging. The sample song on the site, "Långt ner i ett kaninhål" is not really representative in that it is one of the most accessible tracks, but it also contains that sense of humour that most of Samla Mammas Manna's music depends on (even the name of the band is a very comical one in swedish, as are many of the song titles).

Personally, i like Klossa Knapitatet more than Måltid, mainly because it contains my two favourite Samla Mammas Manna songs, "Långt ner i ett kaninhål" and "Musmjölkningsmaskinen", but in reality, the two albums follow pretty much the same concept. There shouldn't be too much of a dilemma as to which to listen to first.

Very highly recommended for... well, everyone really. One of the bands i as a Swede am the most proud over to be associated with.
