4 stars I just realized that it has been exactly a year since the death of Lars Hollmer who I consider to be the greatest progressive rock artist that has ever emerged from the Swedish music scene.

Måltid is probably the most accessible Samla Mammas Manna releases and my first experience of this bands unique sound. Although the band takes some elements from the Swedish Progg-movement (not to be confused with Progressive rock) this is far from the left-wing mambo jumbo that was played by bands like Blå Tåget, Hoola Bandoola Band and Nationalteatern. This is creative Avant-Prog at it's finest.

There are just so many real classics featured on this album that regardless of any personal opinions this release just has to be recommended to anyone interested in exploring this exciting band. Compositions like Dundrets Fröjder, Syster System and Tärningen are easily some of the most well recognized highlights that have become Samla Mammas Manna's definitely live classics for years to come.

My personal favorite instance here comes in the form of Den Återupplivade Låten. The composition does start slow but once it starts rolling there's just so much energy and excitement embedded into these six minutes that I always want to hit the replay button right after hearing it!

***** star songs: Dundrets Fröjder (10:43) Den Återupplivade Låten (5:53)

**** star songs: Oförutsedd Förlossning (3:10) Folkvisa I Morse (2:07) Syster System (2:27) Tärningen (3:33) Svackorpoängen (3:11) Værelseds Tilbud (2:26)

*** star songs: Minareten (8:21)
