4 stars ATLAS' "Bla Vardag" is essential prog in every way possible. This 1977 gem is sure to please all prog heads combining awesome keyboard work (yes even some Mellotron) with wicked guitar and bass/drum interplay. ATLAS have a very classic sound and never get too sappy or loud sounding... always very controlled and sophisticated. In some ways they remind me a little of KAIPA (especially the guitar work), but have a strong CAMEL feel as well. Songs are exceptionally well crafted (some absolutely inspiring passages) and get very involved revealing the musical competency of this Swedish act. This is very upbeat, happy and involved prog which will certainly keep you sitting upright throughout the listen. Should have mentioned that this is an all instrumental recording.
