3 stars A nice return to the flower power era, aka the Danish version of flowers & power.

Ache continues with their symphonic spaced out pretty heavy flower power music. The references to the likes of Deep Purple, Beggars Opera, The Nice and The Beatles. Unfortunate, Ache have included a pretty substandard version of their song We Can Work It Out. The rest of the album is filled with Hammond organs and distorted solo guitars. But mostly Hammond organs and the guitars is just used to add textures. The drums and the bass is excellent too. The vocals is good. The music is pretty hard at times. But it also slows down and becomes Beatles like on several occasions. I think this is a good combination. The best songs here are Shadow Of A Gypsy, the title track and Accheron. In short, if you like this kind of music, Ache and their albums is something you need to purchase. I have my reservations. This album is just cosy in my view and just that.

3.5 stars
