3 stars I have the re-issue which isn't a remastered version of the original recording, but a complete re-recording of that album. The original had mellotron on it, this doesn't. This is fairly mellow with some nice guitar leads.There are only two tracks on this album that really impress me.

"Mellom Oss" is one of those tracks. Melancholic with synths and some great guitar to open. The tempo picks up before a minute. Nice bass followed by some outstanding guitar. That light uptempo melody is back as the contrasts continue. Just a cool sounding tune. "Trostevise" is almost polka-like.Yikes ! "Trostevals" opens with piano and is joined by the violin. Not a fan. "Ostinfor Ord" is the other song I really like.The guitar takes the lead early as bass throbs. Violin takes over 1 1/2 minutes in as the guitar stops. The intro melody is back 2 1/2 minutes in, it reminds me of CAMEL. The guitar lights it up 5 minutes in. Nice. "Hvem Snakker Til Meg ?" is a good song. I like the guitar, and we get some vocals after 1 1/2 minutes. The organ after 4 minutes is a nice touch.

"Elegi" opens with some good guitar before that polka vibe returns. Thankfully it doesn't break out into a "Lookimpickled Polka"-like tune. "Mens Tiden Forgar" is the 17 minute closer. We get some female vocals on this one. It builds to a guitar / drum / bass melody before settling back down 2 1/2 minutes in as flute arrives. Vocals with strummed guitar before 4 minutes.Female vocals follow. Organ before 7 1/2 minutes that comes and goes. The flute is back after 11 minutes. Male vocals a minute later as it continues to be pastoral. Before 15 minutes we finally get a little passion as the guitar and organ come in to end it in style.

I feel like i'm being generous giving this 3 stars, but then i'm not a huge fan of Folk music (or polka).
