5 stars It came as quite shock when i found that Kebnekaise had released a new album. The first one in 31 years! And the second shock came when i heard the songs from this album played live in concert. Except for the more modern sound quality, they really havn't changed a bit in sound! The songs from this album wouldn't have been a bit out of place on their second or third album!

My favorite song from this album is probably the longest song on the album, "Polska från Alfta". It gives a hint of their on-stage improvisation with violin and guitar solos while keeping a fantastic steady, grooving and highly danceable 3/4 beat. "Polska" is by the way a traditional folk-dance in 3/4. The most fun song on this album is "Vallåt", which is actually a rock-version of the song you traditionally sing while calling on the cows!

For those of you who don't understand swedish, i can tell you that the songs titles arn't very special or intersesting. "Brudmarsch" means "Bride march", and is a song played at weddings, most of the time on violin. "Skänklåt" means a song that is dedicated to someone. "Polska" as i said, is a traditional folk dance, and Leksand, Alfta & Enviken are towns or villages is sweden. So the song titles basically translates to "Polska from some village", "Song dedicated to someone" and such.

If you enjoyed their second and third album, you would have to be pretty stupid not to enjoy this one aswell! For me it's an obvious 5-star album. A fantastic return-to-form from one of swedens best bands!
