4 stars Being Swedish and all, you would have thought I'd discover this band long ago...but as it happens, I started less than a year ago. Now, I've listened to all of their albums, this one seems to be most easily accessible, sometimes approaching the Eurovision Song Contest - with an ingenious twist... You could go on naming possible influences (Saga - very obviously), Yes, It Bites, Queen, even ABBA, but they have found an identity in the midst of all this. To me personally, associations while listening keep circling around the athosphere, now and then settling in temporarily like birds on telephone wires. And I like most of it. Initially, I felt that some of the energy from from example "Imaginary friends" had been lost along the way and they had turned int more of a limited pop outfit, but the more I listen to it, the more I seem to enjoy the whole concept. What strikes me generally is the consistent quality of their four albums so far. Maybe they haven't created an instant classic yet, but still almost a handful of uplifting, playful and imaginative Progressive Pop. Or ProgRockMediumSize or whatever... Who cares?
