From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Jordsjø is one of the rare Scandinavian acts that draws from Scandinavia's native traditions (folk metal excepted, obviously). It helps that it's sung in Norwegian, but the music is rooted as much in folk as it is in progressive rock. Änglagård might be the most obvious analog, but I feel Kebnekaise's brand of progressive folk is an apter comparison. Flutes and a panoply of keys take the lead on this album, with guitars largely relegated to a supporting role. Jazz influences are abundant, as well. Atmosphere is used effectively on this album, and the Mellotron is well-suited for that task.
