3 stars An original one-time effort with weird names but in reality, it's a vehicle behind Stolt and Bodin.

The sound is definitely vintage and there are typical Swedish prog hooks with a bit of melancholy. Not surprising that Flower Kings bit are represented, too. Accordeon and saxophone add a new dimension to the feeling.

"Stoneheart" is the best and most ambitious track with inspired playing by all four instruments.

Other tracks are in prog with one foot and in another music style with another such as folk, rock, classical music. There are even vocals to be found.

The album is a good excursion into vintage sound but is far from essential.
