3 stars This second album is now available through Tachika Record label with a mini Lp sleeve, but I already wrote elsewhere what I thought about these "non-official releases" from Tachika! The only merits I give them is making accessible some records that are otherwise unavailable!

From the first chords on this album , you get the feeling you are in a different (and harder) trip than on their calm , dreamy and pastoral self-titled debut. This is a concept album telling you the story of Fjarilar I Magen as the inner sleeve tells you but don't ask me to tell you more as I am totally incapable to grasp the Swedish text and what's more the music is instrumental. However once the power-chord-filled-first short number is over , the excellent ambiances of their debut come back albeit slightly changed (almost four years between the release of those two) and regularly interupted by more hard chords or nature sounds such as winds or running water (I looked for a broken pipe in the house the first time I heard this much like I looked for the dog that was barking in the garden as I discovered Pink Floyd 's Animals album).

This album is less relevant than their debut but still worth discovering but less so. Hence the three stars
