Prog Reviewer
5 stars KAIPA's three first albums stand as the high-point of Swedish symphonic prog in the 1970's. Their debut album is a magical album full of deep professionalism and a band hungry to share their clever song writing and symphonic sound. The first KAIPA album in many ways is their best as it introduces the world to a young, ambitious band exploring the boundaries and overlap-areas of rock, classical, jazz and folk. On this album keyboardist Hans Lundin dominates the sound with piano, organ, string-synth and both melodic and occasionally more grating synthesizer solos. When coupled with Roine STOLT's guitars, Bergmans' drumming and Erikkson's standout bass work, we get a definite allusion to the sound and feel of CAMEL. On this album KAIPA perform some wonderful symphonic music with great character and originality.
