4 stars In my opinion the follow-up to "Maltid" is just as good if not better. I love how prominant the guitar is on this one. We still get some silliness but not a lot of it really. Mostly just lights out instrumental work.

"Nothing" is a short pleasant sounding track that slows down late with some clapping and whistling. "Small Dialectics" is where things get cooking. This is very intricate as sounds come and go. Nice bass too.This is really good. The tempo shifts often. Prominant guitar 5 minutes in and I like the electric piano before 7 minutes too. Great tune ! "The Sigh" is a short piano and acoustic guitar led tune. "Way Down A Rabbithole" is uptempo with piano, guitar and drums standing out. It then settles some. Some vocal expressions after 2 minutes and accordion too as it gets silly for a minute.

"Come A Little Closer" is two guys talking fast in Swedish with silly background sounds before it ends with music. "The Mousemitkingmachine" is uptempo and sounds amazing. It's more powerful a minute in. Some nice guitar after 3 minutes. A change a minute later as piano leads, then back to the original soundscape. "Influences" opens with sounds coming and going including vocal expressions. It builds to an intense climax before 4 minutes then we get a beat with guitar. Keyboards replace guitar late. "Klossa Knapitatet" is a short piece with accordion and other sounds. "Frameless Nights" is my favourite. Guitar and piano to start, bass too. The guitar is laid back but oh so good. A calm follows then back to the previous melody.

If you have "Maltid" but don't have this one, I strongly suggest you seek it out. You won't be disappointed.
