4 stars Dungen stretch out into jam/space rock territory here, very far removed from DUNGEN 2 (Stadsvandringar). Dungen pretty much let you know you're listening to an entire different beast right from the get go with _Intro_ a jam freak-out with Reine Fiske's fuzz guitar all over it. There seems to be a Soft Machine _Vol.1 & 2_ feel meets Keith Relf's ARMAGEDDON(or a bit of Steamhammer). Some of the instrumental parts, as well as Reine Fiske's guitar playing harken back to Landberk's _Riktigt Akta_ LP out of 1992. The actual songs are similar to Dungen 2(Stadsvandringar), not quite as melodic but more of a crossroads between the '60s and 70s, feet firmly planted in the year 1970(i.e. bands such as Gracious and Cressida). _Mon amour_ is a killer instrumental with a purple haze. Definitely a highlight and as heavy as you'll hear Dungen to this date. They took a far more ambient psych approach on their subsequent album _4_ in 2008. Still can't believe this was recorded in the year 2007.
