4 stars The directionality of some features and the music characters will be able to be gripped as the activity and wandering of the band including this album. It is said that a lot of parts that follow the music character that this album constructed with "Maltid" in the remark of Lars Hollmer and derived it are contained. And, it is partial where the flavor of Jazz Rock that has been introduced individuality and everywhere of the possession by guitar player's Coste Apetra has been taken to the tune well. And, the overall fact of the music character that they were creating to which it characterizes and individuality and the base have already been established might be a point that should make a special mention.

It is guessed that the part of the base with which the band is formed is very important if their music characters are considered overall. If it borrows the remark of Lars Hollmer, it will be enumerated that the culture of a native type whirls incessantly in their music characters. The culture of Northern Europe and the melody of traditional might be consistent with the humour. And, there is a part where the model of the United States and Britain has not been so introduced into their bases either. These elements might consist exactly of an obstinate part and the character of their culture and root.

And, the flow that they were advocating at the same time as the character and the culture's remarkably showing in the music character at this time can be taken up. It is said that they were influenced from Kurt Weill of the composer in Germany according to the remark of Lars Hollmer. This remark might be a part of their elements. And, it might agree if some respects are enumerated. There is a kind of "oompah" as a part that they were advocating at that time. These elements agree with the part of Improvisation that has been gradually taken to the performance.

These elements agreed indeed. They make establishment and the revolution of the music character succeed further by the element of Improvisation to introduce positively. The guitar player emphasizes the humour and traditional further by alternating Eino Haapala back. Or, strong ensemble and Improvisation are established. Especially, their directionality at this time might have had the part of the formation for groping and establishment. However, their experimental performances including the part and sensibilities of the idea are reflected in the tune as a stronger part. The part of nervous is reflected and it is possible to feel it in the tune if it says in an opposite meaning. The music characters of men who have them introduce the part of the element and Improvisation of However, uChild Music" might succeed in the projection of a complete sensibility and the sense to the part of the base that originally has it.

Lars Hollmer produced the music for Improvisation and sent Chris Cutler the sound source at this time. And, Chris Cutler spoke very highly of the music character of Samla Mammas Manna. Lars Hollmer felt the criticism and the criticism that had been received from the home country for the created music painful. However, they might have had the role told to connect with the next generation through music and hope. The music character that Lars Hollmer had carried out as a result established a complete perfection at this time. Part of humour and technology. The spectator, and and, it observes by consider the interpersonal relationship and it is partial of vision. Their root and culture might have been created with performance and performer's elements. Zeal and the perfection concerning their music are overwhelming.

The melody that is reminiscent to the construction of a complex rhythm of their traditional and polka gets on "Ingenting/Nothing" well. The tune shifts to the part of three rhythms after continuing a bright melody and the rhythm. The melody of a humour and a complete culture is performed with the chorus.

"Liten Dialektik/Small Dialectics" is a tune where their original elements appear completely. It might be one of the highlights of this album. A complex rhythm and the melody develop attended with ten rhythm six rhythms. The melody with the humour and the composition that develops intermittently have an overwhelming perfection. Part where dash feeling is produced. Or, Chord with a complete transparent feeling and the anacatesthesia flows. And, the sound of the keyboard with the anacatesthesia strongly and ensemble is constructed. The tune explodes from Solo of the guitar further. And, it is partial of the flow that contains Improvisation that flows in the space. The session of overwhelming Jazz Rock is done. The tension gets on is continuously of four rhythms and six rhythms complete. The processing of the theme of ten rhythms that returns again in the part of Coda is the highest.

As for "Sucken/The Sigh", the part of the connection might be included for the album. The sound of the piano and the stringed instrument with the tension is impressive. The expression of feelings that often appears is their tastes, too.

As for "Lang ner i ett Kaninhal/Way Down a Rabbithole", the melody with expression of feelings tells the listener the element of Northern Europe. A complex rhythm and the melody consistently tell the part of traditional and the polka. Flow of guitar that produces part of humour. Or, the part where the element of the yodelling is introduced might be an act of nature. The performance of the accordion is suitable for the tune, too. Development and ensemble of five rhythms have succeeded.

A complete humour exists together to the avant-garde in "Kom lite narmare/Come a Little Closer". Flow of part by explosion and conversation of piano. The bell and the percussion instrument have been taken well. It merges in the theme of their consistency. It might mean the role and the connection that this tune also expands the width of the album.

As for "Musmjolkningsmaskinen/The Mousemilkingmachine", the taste of traditional in Northern Europe is reflected in the tune. A complex rhythm and a bright melody continue. Part of cheerful development to which six rhythms are taken. Or, a fast tempo that appears on the way and the flavor of Jazz Rock are complete. The guitar contributes to the tune. And, the flow of traditional continued is an element for them.

"Influenser/Influences" starts from complete Improvisation. This element be might an element that they were doing and original appearance. The tune is gradually taken the rhythm and progresses. Chorus who produces intermittent rhythm and avant-garde and part of voice. An original music character is constructed while arranging the parts of a few Jazz Rock overall.

"Klossa Knapitatet" will mean the part of the connection for the album. Their culture and root are completely expressed with the accordion.

"Ramlosa Kvallar/Frameless Night" starts due to the explosion of the guitar with the tension. Processing of piano sound that twines from another direction. The tension continues. Their tastes are shown while putting fast and slow. It progresses showing various respects.

The center of the music character that Lars Hollmer creates has been completely exactly established by this album.
