3 stars This is a surprising album as it represents a completely new sound for Kebnekajse, for better or for worse. The group experienced some line-up changes prior to this album when, among others, guitarist and front man Kenny Håkansson left. Instead, this is a very keyboard-heavy album, something Kebnekajse never had employed before. Unfortunately, this album sounds very much of it's time (Late 70s Sweden, this includes the cover.) and sometimes quite close to mainstream music of then. Otherwise it's a bit lightweight in the vein of THE ALAN PARSON'S PROJECT".

Particularly the first track, "Friheten", sounds as it could have participated in Eurovision Song Contest of '79. "Jakten på Vivaldi", on the other hand, sounds more like the Kebnekajse I know. In general they make use of more conventional lyrics in a way new to Kebnekajse; almost half of the tracks are with vocals and it definitely contributes to the mentioned dated mainstream sound. The instrumental tracks are better but overall it's not that bad.

Frasse | 3/5 |
