4 stars Nice jazz fusion with a strong sense of folk/traditional melody, pace and structure.

1. "Spadom" (4:11) melodic but perhaps a little simpistic. (7.5/10)

2. "Pestrottedans" (7:05) again demonstrating the band playing a little too tightly, too closely to the main melodic structure. (8.5/10)

3. "Barkus I Vinterland" (6:04) a much ore laid back song than the previous two, it establishes a very catchy melody straightaway with the saxophone before guest ELAINE DI FALCO is given a solo on accordion! Nice song that does very little unusual or extraordinary until the big band sound crescendo near the end. (7.5/10)

4. "Fundal" (6:54) nice slow off-tempo whole band build to open the song. Tense. Keys, saxes, and guitars forge a tight duel-like weave. One of the best songs on the album. (9/10)

5. "Tredje Malist" (4:13) pleasant little ditty with several melodies weaving in and out of each other. (8/10)

6. "Landsbysladder 3" (8:26) folk melodies melt into seductive jazz tunes with this one--and back and forth. Very refreshing and creative! A good song that went on a bit too long. (8.5/10)

7. "Goda' Gomorrah" (6:25) opens with an ominous electronic keyboard wall of sound. Is this Panzerpappa doing Kosmisches Musik? Slowly it builds with an awesome middle section dominated by a "horn section." (NEKTAR's "Nelly the Elephant" comes to mind.) The best song on the album. (9.5/10)

Nothing Earth-shattering here but good, solid prog rock from a folk jazz foundation.
