5 stars I have been following the band since their debut and each time I listen to their music, I am surprised how good these guys are. The music here is instrumental mixing symphonic, zeuhl and avant-garde in the style of the Swedish tradition that has started with Anglagard and Anekdoten. The band enjoy stretch out the notes and extend the song with some repeated beats that are hypnotic for the listener. The breaks are always spot on with the appropriate moods for each section showing the dark and the light side of the music. The atmosphere created by the guitar lines and the precise and obsessive drums patterns are impressive. You can feel the spontaneity and freedom in the band's music but it never loses his sense of the melody. In this sense, I think it's a return to the raw sound of their album "Detta Har Hänt". The only weakness of this album is that the delightful experience lasts only 39 minutes!
