4 stars The original and headstrong progressive TRETTIOARIGA KRIGET takes a giant step towards pop/rock and shorter tracks on their third album. A step backwards you should think but IMO they developed their very personal style to a peak on this album.

It is less progressive than the previous two albums but the songs are much stronger here. The band is tighter than ever and every riff is razor-sharp.

The addition of a fifth member who handles keyboards and sax adds a jazzy feel to many songs but TK balance these jazz-elements carefully and let them just give their songs a tint while the sound throughout is solid rock. The pushing bass, the distinct guitar-work and the sonorous voice are still the trademarks for TK but the music is more refined and has a sharper edge on this album.

Strangely enough I find the two symphonic instrumental pieces (Andra sidan and Moln på marken) the album's weakest points, they are too simple and lack finesse. The rest is a bunch of rocksongs with nice melodies, strong riffs and progressive elements. TK:s best album!

Boluf | 4/5 |
