5 stars Änglagård - HYBRIS - 1992

This album represents one of the most important achievements in progressive rock. The resurrection of the real sound and the return to the original way of composing.

The best way to describe their style would be combination of the aggressiveness of mid-period King Crimson with gentle flowing Scandinavian "folk" music, but done and presented in a way that is unique. It has very high composatory and musical standard.

Four long, complex and multi-part songs(44:15 min.) with a melancholic basic sound, but in addition to delicate passages with gentle guitars, flute melodies, Mellotron, there are also punchy, driving, weird sections with scraping bass and virtuoso, classically trained drums with some fine guitar themes and even a church organ bursts in at some point.

In any case, "Hybris" is one of the milestone records and it brings amazement and admiration.
