3 stars Quite a playful little first album by Archimedes Badkar. An entirely instrumental affair, this is the first of only three albums that they released. 'Badrock' has certain leanings towards 'Embryo' from a few years earlier. Also quite similar but less intrusive than a few other Swedish bands from that era, namely 'Arbete Och Fritid' and the majestic 'Algarnas Tradgard'.

There are a lot of acoustic instruments used in this recording. Trumpets, flutes, violins and cellos, which although initially are slightly irritating, gradually induces you into a state of hypnosis.

The production values aren't the best, with a certain 'tinnyness' present throughout which some listeners may find distracting. It has that particular vibe that Scandinavian bands held at that time. The middle section is very nice and quite dreamy and folky in a mediaeval sort of way.

It's not a bad effort, quite pleasant and jaunty with a fair amount of unusualness but nothing special.

Dobermensch | 3/5 |
