4 stars I think this is the best one from TRETTIOÅRIGA KRIGET for prog-fans. Especially for the epic 18 minute- track on side two of the original LP. TK:s sound might make you think of RUSH or KING CRIMSON (Wetton- era), the bass is loud and heavy, guitar dominates and keyboards just sketches the background to this band's very personal sound and style. Unfortunately non-swedish people can't appreciate the deep, philosofical lyrics, but they can enjoy the rich voice of the opera-trained singer. IMO this album lacks consitency because the first four tracks are very different in style, and Murar (Walls) is just a rather boring studio-jam. Regardless of this, the music on this album is sparkling, well-played, innovative and right down progressive. It's heavy and intricate, full of twists and turns and would probably have reached a greater number of fans if the swedish lyrics hadn't turned them away.
Boluf | 4/5 |
