4 stars During last 2 decades Scandinavia became major world centre of progressive music. Partially Norway is a home of almost all leading nu jazz/nu fusion musicians. It shows local music scene is active and innovative.

Motorpsycho is another Norwegian band, mixing all possible styles in one. Vintage blues-rock and r'n'b, some old school psychedelic prog, spacey sounds, hard'n'heavy, jamming, jazz- rock, etc. Even if in many cases the basic sound is guitar indie rock.

When started listening this album, I was a bit disappointed. Few first songs are real guitar indie rock, even with grunge influention. Not the best element for progressive brew. But step by step this music attracted me more and more. Not too often you can find between modern recordings so different and unpredictable music! Possibly, it's difficult to speak about band's style, whenever each song is different. Or let say their style is just all possible (mostly vintage prog) styles in one. Only common component in almost all songs is dirty guitar sound.

Possibly, not most classic progressive rock album, but with strong smell of early 70-s - the time when progressive rock was still really innovative and progressive. OK, one can say this album's music is deeply rooted in traditions from 70-s and hardly brings something really new. Yes, it's true, but "it smells like a teen's spirit" ...
