5 stars This album captures the band at the peak of their exploration ride and belongs to the most essential Swedish progressive rock albums of the 70's. The band managed to create a right balance between energetic and more emotional melancholic parts, mainly uses instrumental power although singing in Swedish is not bad either. Playing is very competent with aggressive sound by bass guitar, sometimes also coupled with guitar. Keyboards have many faces from more traditional organ and piano to the contemporary first league Moog/synths/mellotron and even modern electric piano, clavinet and Fender Rhodes. He can create a powerful atmosphere. The band manages to create their own sound and emotions. The first composition is very representative, it has classical music influence, a few hard-rock elements but first of all, it is original and sounds like Kaipa. Instrumental parts like 12-13th minute or 17th minute are very pleasant to listen and completely different from each other. Guitar playing by the young Roine Stolt is melodic, tasty and emotional. And as I said, the keyboard player is so versatile with his array of keyboards. The other tracks are also very good, although shorter. They are melodic and well constructed. Listen to the typical Swedish prog sound in "Korståg" which has the smoking guitar and is purely instrumental. "Dagens Port" is a very symphonic and solemn track with strong chords structure given by keyboards.

The last track is the title track and it is a more reflective track with a sliding guitar motive that is mellow but typical Stolt's.

Highly recommended and one of a kind.
