3 stars Decent music, good musicians, little originality.

That's for the background. In terms of music, this sounds at times as a heavy ELP like during the opener "Den Dagen Jeg Forsvant". Loads of pompous keys and unfortunately weak vocals.

As usual, this Nordic band is playing some good chunk of mellotron lines which are of course extremely pleasant to my old ears. But these ones sound as déjà vu some tens of times. Not unpleasant though ("Sjærlernes Evige Bæren") even if a bit heavy at times.

Some more melody can be heard through "Trollman", but these keys definitely sound borrowed. Again, nothing wrong in here, just that there is nothing original to discover while listening to this "Faunus".

Most of this album sounds as a pastiche of the old days of the Scandinavian scene (and beyond).

Decent music, good musicians, little originality. Nothing more to write about it. Three stars (rounded up really) for a third tier.
