4 stars I'm very sorry to rate group I love a lot so, so low, but I can't help myself. First I have to confess. I've listened Blomljud earlier. And not only once. About hundred times for last half of a year ? Or three months ? Their new release is very addictive and I was judging this as "after Blomljud" reviewer. I'm listening Doorway right now, as always when writing review, but it's not so good as B. I see similar music style, but I lack these fancy catchy rhytms and magical music at all. Don't take me bad, it's magical, but without stronger theme. Something like theme from 7:50-10:30 in Other Half of the Sky, or more pop Bluebells. Or Methuselah's Children. Still, it's nice album, but for me it's not so interesting as others. Sorry Sweden, I owe you something, so I'm going to write review for Blomljud right now.

EDIT: 4(+), slightly worse than Blomljud, but with clear mind (after months passed). I need to get myself to write completely new review, because from this point of view (half a year later), this is (sorry for that word), bull_hit. But my feelings are for better four star rating, there are promising things, which are later fulfilled in their next release. I heard them, almost can touch them, but when they're almost on reach, this glimpse escapes and leaves you wondering, why they didn't finished the job. They could do better and they did, in Blom.
