4 stars I've never known what to make of Heldon. For a start the name is from a 1972 Science Fiction book called 'Lord of the Swastika', in which The High Republic of Heldon was founded on the principles of killing mutants and keeping humanity pure. Which sort of gives the front cover of this album darker connotations.

Anyway, putting that aside, 'Agneta Nilsson' is an electronic album full of long washes of growling analogue synths masterminded by Richard Pinhas. (Just watch how you pronounce that awkward suname English speakers!).

Most Heldon albums sound heavily influenced by Robert Fripp. This is probably the most intense and menacing sounding of all their releases.

'Agneta Nilsson' is like a darker sounding French 'Tangerine Dream'. Less prog rock and more electronic than their others and probably my favourite of their albums. Quite different for 1976.
