4 stars This is Kebnekajses first album containing Folk Rock and a real highlight of their career. It's probably their most famous release. It's all made up of traditional Swedish folk tunes plus the trippy 16 minutes long "Comanche Spring" written by guitarist Ingemar Böcker.

The album starts quite weak though, with "Rättvikarnas gånglåt", the only track to feature vocals - female chanting by Swedish singer/songwriter Turid. To make up for the weak beginning the rest of side A consists of the albums two highlights: "Horgalåten and "Skänklåt från Rättvik". It's fine guitar-work along with Mats Glenngårds electric violin.

Side B begins with "Barkbrödslåten", which became a hit for the group and is certainly their most well known tune. Not a bad one but it doesn't reach the heights of the two other traditional instrumentals of the album, which both builds up to a climax, something "Barkbrödslåten" lacks. The rest of side B consists of already named "Comanche Spring", which has more to do with an acid trip than Native Americans.

Frasse | 4/5 |
