2 stars Graceland indeed.............

This album is an oddity in Kebnekajse's discography. In fact, it is not. Kebnekajse changed style on almost every album. It is very difficult to pinpoint this band. Anyway, Kebnekajse went to Africa (West Africa to be more precise) and returned with an album which is so diverse that it is difficult to describe.

Yes, they sounds like Osibasa and Paul Simon on Graceland. But how the holy squirrel they also included some Soft Machine type of jazz on this album is something I do not understand. Some modern rock is also included here. The album is supposed to be from Africa, but it ends up somewhere near Madrid, Spain when all influences is taken into account. Bewildering !

I prefer the Soft Machine themes here. But the few African themes here are also great. But this album is so diverse and bewildering that it is impossible to really embrace this album. For me, at least. This album is just a filler in a Kebnekajse collection and will not be played again by me. 2 stars is a sufficient distribution of stars.

2 stars
