3 stars Oh, it seems like I'm a wrong prog fan, because I'm the only one here that isn't impressed by this opus! :( Or maybe my expectations were too high after reading the string of rave reviews here? What I hear is a typical Scandinavian prog mixed with a bit of metal and healthy dose of local folk, and patented Scandinavian melancholy. The fact they sing in Norwegian doesn't bother me at all. What does bothers me, though, is music: mostly boring and lifeless. And vocal: emotionless and monotonous. I understand they are Northerners, cold-blooded Scandinavian guys that must survive dark cold wintrers, but so do Anglagard or Ankdoten that however have a lot of passion in their music! Not Joedsjo.... Their music is not bad (although vocal is quite weak...), it just it fails to impress me. I love many bands from Karisma Records staple, but this is an exception. I tried to like them, I listened to the entire opus three times, but still can't hear what's the buzz about. Three stars just because I want to be polite, but 2 stars really....
