4 stars "Klossa Knapitat" was Sweden's eclectic group The SAMLA's third album released. This is one very wild album incorporating elements of Scandinavian folk music, pop, fusion, as well as humour, and group improvisation. When the band gets going it will remind you very much of fusion induced Miles Davis (minus the trumpet). Generally speaking this album is upbeat, full of rollicking piano and guitar, melodic in a sing-song kinda way, and a rather zainy almost slap-stick humour tossed in. Instrumentally this album is a real stonker with guitar, piano, bass, and drums, with occasional accordion and voices, and other assorted noisemakers. The SAMLAS were a solid mix of musicians and fans of the FLOWER KINGS will recognize the inclusion of Mr. Hasse Bruninsson on the drums and percussion. As far as originality goes this album stands all on its own with their "ever-shifting" musical prowess and deliver what I will coin "polka-prog" with heavy doses of Miles Davis and Frank ZAPPA thoughout. Overall an amazing recording sure to please all fans of fusion/prog.
