3 stars Second official album from the group, now presenting lyrics in musicians' mother tongue Swedish. This is nice, I like honest approach and Swedish is pleasant to listen, though understanding is little more different than English or Finnish to me. Both sound production and album cover art are now very professional. As quick analysis of the songs; First track is quite commercial sounding with some intelligent twists on rhythm arrangements. This is followed by a groovy rocker with neat rhythm twists. Then an open mantra introduces the longest track in the album, "Utbränd". The singing feels like a weak link here to me, though the composition is otherwise quite good. Phases with male/female vocals are nicest I think. Then follows a nice pleasant tune with acoustic drive. Great rhythm guitar pushes forward "Begagnat liv", little minor oriented rocker, which is a very good song. Last track is also moody stuff with sax, another good long track, though some changes it don't feel totally logical. Not bad though. Stylistically not my" favorite dish", but pleasant to listen still. If commercial slightly neo- proggish stuff with Swedish lyrics sounds an interesting combo, try this, it is very well done album. Fine and delicate arrangements are a trademark of this group too in my opinion.
